These are my favorite quotes when it comes to publishing and book marketing. They set the tone for this latest valuable publishing and book marketing guide book. The world is filled with authors trying to sell their books. Everyone wants to know the secret how to increase their sales. My aim is to inspire you to become more creative in promoting your writing, publishing and book marketing.
You will provided with 111 tips on how to successfully marketing your book(s) for free – in an “organic” way. You will do this through content writing, networking, and many other small, savvy steps during the writing, publishing and book-layout process.
One of the best motivations to write is simply the love of writing. If you learn the steps to successfully market your books, you will be comfortable in book marketing as well, especially when using a lot of content writing. Remember, it takes five years, 10,000 hours, or five books until you are really known in reader circles. This is about the same amount of time as artists in other professions, or athletes, need to establish themselves in their field. So, there is no need to implement all these tips in a week or a month.
Take one small step every day. It is more important to write your next book, blog, or magazine article. You are on a long-term journey; your writing and publishing career will span decades. Enjoy the writing in every form – from blogs or short stories to novels – for many years to come. Do not stress yourself over all these completely new steps in the publishing and marketing process. Slow and steady wins the race!
Becoming a Bestseller Author Takes Years.
Building up your readership takes lots of time, so it is surprising that some authors dream of their first book as a potential bestseller. They do not realize that it takes a long time, and hard work, to gain an audience – one reader at a time. It Takes Time… Many authors have totally unrealistic expectations when it comes to the time required for effective book promotion and making meaningful connections with readers. They expect wonders from a single sales campaign, and they do not understand that underpricing or “selling” for free is not a marketing strategy.
Never stop LEARNING. Dedicated authors never stop acquiring specialized knowledge related to their major purpose: becoming a successful and maybe even a bestseller author, and learn how to professional self-publishing their books. Those who are not successful usually make the mistake of believing that the knowledge-acquiring period ends when one finishes their book. They do not make an effort to learn about publishing and book marketing as well.
“If you can IMAGINE it, you can create it,” said Hill. “Ideas are the beginning points of all fortunes.” Jack Canfield said: “People who do not have goals work for people who have goals.”
Make Writing Part of Your Happiness! It is the only thing that matters. Write about the things that truly matter to you (that entertain or interest you), and it will contribute to your happiness in the long term. Success will follow. Remember the 10,000-hour Rule. That’s roughly how much work and practice it takes to become accomplished in any field, whether it is sports, arts, or business. 10,000 hours is five years of full-time hard work. If you want to become a virtuoso, you’d better triple that.
