As a Self-Published Author, You Have a Lot to Gain From Learning Marketing from the Ground Up — Here Are the Top Seven Benefits

Join us now

Join the Indie Book Marketing Workshop and Community today — and join the self-published authors who are taking action and gaining all of the advantages of understanding book marketing from the ground up.

Book marketing encompasses everything that goes into selling the books you worked so hard to write — from the first tweet you send announcing your new book to an ongoing, sophisticated awareness campaign — and everything in between.

Everything in between that you do to sell your book could include videos, podcasts, radio interviews, press releases, a media kit, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, book fairs, book readings, and so much more.

In fact, there are so many marketing avenues you could travel down to sell your books that it’s all too easy to spend too much time doing the wrong things, spreading yourself too thin trying to do it all, or making mistakes along the way that derail your book sales strategy all together.

Today, there is a slew of information on book marketing available online. But among that information are too many personal opinions, disconnected ideas, expensive book marketing offers that yield no or low results, educational offers that mix publishing a book or writing a book with marketing a book, and strategies that might work for one book, but not for your book.

How can you overcome these marketing challenges and get the marketing know-how you need to sell your books — without spinning your wheels, wasting time, and spending an exorbitant amount of money?

I created the Indie Book Marketing Workshop and Community to help self-published authors solve these exact issues. As an author  and a marketing writer for the past 30 years, I understand the book marketing landscape — including the pitfalls and challenges. And I understand why authors today need a comprehensive education program.

Unlike any other marketing program available today, the Indie Book Marketing Workshop and Community gives you an education on the entire range of marketing actions in which authors can participate.

It also gives you the insight you need to be able to weight the pros and cons of all the marketing options available out there, so you can decide which ones make sense for you and your book.

One thing is for sure, you’ll become a smarter book marketer.

Seven Ways the Indie Book Marketing Workshop and Community Will Make You a Smarter Book Marketer

1. You’ll become a professional author.

As hard as writing your books was, and no matter how much blood, sweat, and tears you put into it, you won’t be considered a professional author until you start to sell your books. These days with publishing being so easy that literally anyone can do it, the difference between serious authors and amateurs who jump on the e-publishing bandwagon, is marketing.

Professional authors are the authors who are actually taking the steps necessary to announce their books to the world, building awareness of their books, and engaging with potential readers on a regular basis — after they push the “publish” button on Amazon or any other book-selling platform.

2. You’ll understand the full range and scope of book marketing opportunities.

Until you know a subject completely, you will always be at a disadvantage. Without the full knowledge of book marketing under your belt, you could easily spend too much time doing things that do not work for you and your books. What’s more, you could miss an opportunity to engage in specific marketing tactics that would have the most impact for your unique book.

For example, for my books I’ve zeroed in on the number marketing strategy that I believe will garner me the greatest exposure. So I’ll focus the bulk of my time and energy on that marketing strategy.

3. You’ll feel more confident knowing you understand marketing.

Many self-published authors are overjoyed when they finally finish their first books. But all too often that joy is short-lived. Because close on its heels is the feeling of fear at the thought of marketing their books. In fact, book marketing is a skill that authors must learn, along with writing and publishing, if you hope to sell your books.

By learning all of the options available to book marketers and how to choose the options that will work best for you, you will become confident — and reclaim the joy you experienced the day you became a published author.

4. You’ll be more educated in marketing — and, as a result, better informed to make decisions on “the next great marketing tactic.”

There are many people promoting this or that marketing program or strategy. The promotions aimed at self-published book authors won’t end anytime soon, because this market sector is booming. Many of the offers sound enticing, but can they really deliver?

With a deep and wide knowledge of marketing under your belt, you’ll be able to make informed decisions on the validity of these offers. For example, when I receive offers to sign up for miscellaneous marketing program, I can tell right away if they are legitimate or not, and if they will provide me with any insight I don’t already know.

5. You’ll be way ahead of your competition.

Today’s book universe is glutted with books — and more are being published every day. However, most self-published authors are not marketing their books at all or they are marketing them very poorly.

Becoming a smarter and more informed book marketer will automatically give you an advantage over these others authors. This is a huge competitive advantage!

6. You’ll sell more of your books.

There is no way around it — until you start marketing, you won’t sell many books. Once you learn marketing from the ground up, your chances of selling more copies of your book go up considerably. Marketing is the engine that drives book sales. Are you ready to put the key in the engine?

7. You’ll gain a wealth of marketing insight at a very low cost.

The Indie Book Marketing Community delivers one of the most comprehensive marketing educational programs available today — and at a very low, very reasonable fee (join monthly or annually). I think it’s safe to say that you cannot find a more comprehensive marketing workshop out there at such a low price. This is an incredible value for indie authors. In fact, it’s such a great value that the price to join won’t stay this low forever. So join now — and get the best value available in today’s book marketing universe.
