If you don’t know much about marketing, don’t worry. We all start with nothing. I’m Joanna Penn and back in 2008, I had no book sales, no audience, no website, no social media, no podcast, no email list. No nothing. Now I’m a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of thrillers and non-fiction. My books have sold over 500,000 copies in 83 countries, and I’m an award-winning creative entrepreneur and international speaker, making a multi-six-figure income with my writing. Learning how to market my books and my personal brand changed my life. Yes, you need to write an awesome book, but you also need to know how to get it in front of the right readers. How to Market a Book is for authors who want to sell more books, but it's also for those writers who want to think like an entrepreneur and build a long-term income. It's for traditionally published authors who want to take control of their future, and for self-published authors who want to jump-start a career. There are short-term tactics for those who want to boost immediate sales, but the focus of the book is more about instilling values and marketing principles that will help your long-term career as a writer.

Content Marketing

Think Like a Publisher - How to Use Content to Market Online and in Social Media

Anyone with any kind of digital presence is a publisher. That includes web sites, but also businesses that blog, are present on social media sites such as Facebook, YouTube or Twitter, and even companies that publish and disseminate content digitally, such as white papers, e-books, podcasts, etc. The reason for this shift is clear: it's easier and cheaper than ever to have a digital presence - and to use your digital profile to market to your customers and prospects. Doing so reduces, and in some cases, eliminates, the need for advertising. Why buy media when you ARE the media? But as we all know, with great power comes great responsibility. What kind of content should you publish? In what forms, and on what platforms? How do you ensure that you'll keep having things to say, and how will you say them effectively, in a consistent "voice" unique to your organization? How will you know if your content strategy is working?

The Entrepreneur's Guide to Marketing

Marketing often scares entrepreneurs. They've sweat buckets coming up with a valuable product or service, and now they have to sell it? Won't it sell itself? No. But, as marketing expert Bob Everett shows, marketing is just not that hard. At some level, entrepreneurs know that. They know what appeals to them and what leaves them cold. They know when a person or marketing claim is trustworthy, and they know when claims are exaggerated. Yet when it comes to marketing their own products and services to others, entrepreneurs often find it difficult to apply that same judgment and common sense. Everett to the rescue! He helps entrepreneurs position products in the market, then sell them effectively and ethically. Everett first destroys marketing myths: • Marketing is difficult and needs to be done by professionals. • Good marketing has to be expensive. • Marketing skills require extensive training • Marketing requires a great deal of creativity These myths have spawned a multi-billion dollar industry consisting of advertising agencies, public relations firms, marketing consultants, and academic marketing programs in business schools. But as this book shows, marketing is a simple process that anyone can master—and that entrepreneurs must master if they are to succeed. Fortunately, the most effective marketing programs are usually the most honest, simple, and inexpensive. The Entrepreneur's Guide to Marketing is designed to help the entrepreneur, business owner, manager, or marketing professional harness his or her own inner wisdom and personal experience to develop powerful and efficient marketing programs. Both a how-to and a how to think about it book, it takes readers through a step-by-step process of figuring things out for themselves. The result? A successful marketing program that will help entrepreneurs harvest new customers, more dollars, and overall success.

A Seriously Useful Author's Guide to Marketing and Publicising Books

View: 9358
Gone are the times when most authors could relax and let their publisher sell their book for them. Nowadays, in a climate of increasing commercialisation, the majority of authors, both new and established, are discovering that they get no help at all. For the self-published (a rapidly expanding market) this has always been largely the case, but now nearly all authors are faced with the task of having to market and publicise their own book. The prospect is a daunting one, but without some form of self-input it is rare for any book to sell in significant quantities.However, exactly what needs to be done to generate sales, and to create a reputation for a book, is often a mystery. Thus, Seriously Useful aims to demystify the processes in a concise, lively, and highly readable way. Although primarily concerned with making sales, it also offers some very useful pre-publication advice, including the options and benefits of self-publishing. In addition it reveals some essential inside information on how the books trade works, so the author has an excellent understanding of their book’s journey from manuscript, to publisher, to wholesaler, to retailer, to reader. There are also some very useful contributions from other mainstream and self-published authors. Written by Mary Cavanagh, a novelist and short story writer, who has had first-hand experience of both mainstream and self-publishing. Her previous work includes The Crowded Bed (Transita 2007) and A Man Like Any Other – The Priest’s Tale (Matador 2008).
