Authors complain about marketing, but it’s necessary, otherwise you won’t make sales. There are endless ways to market your ebooks.
Sadly if you’re relying on tags and keywords to make your ebooks discoverable, you’ll hit a snag. Some authors on Amazon cram their titles with a dozen keywords, so your book is pushed back ten or 30 pages deep in the search results.
Authors have complained about keyword-cramming for years. Sooner or later Amazon will conduct a purge. In the meantime, do some easy promotions yourself. It’s not difficult, and it needn’t take much time.
The process I share in Ebook Dominance works. And yes, it takes just 15 minutes a day. Be consistent; do a little each day. You’ll start selling, and then you’ll sell more.
What if you can’t spend 15 minutes a day?
For most of my pen names I can’t spend 15 minutes a day either. I’d be lucky to spend 30 minutes a month promoting most of them.
There’s a solution — your readers’ list.
The marketing key: your readers’ list
As soon as I set up a new pen name, I set up a readers’ mailing list for that name. I add the signup code to a page on Facebook, or on a blog. Then I add the signup page’s URL to the back matter of each ebook under that pen name.
Try this simple strategy yourself.
You’ll slowly get subscribers. To build subscribers quickly, make an ebook free, and then promote it on one of the many “free ebooks” promotional websites. Or run some Facebook ads.
Be patient: everything you do counts, it’s cumulative
I discuss consistency in Ebook Dominance . Keep up your marketing chores. You’ll see results.
The other day I burst out laughing when I read a gleeful email message from a student. She forwarded her message of her pending payment from Amazon, and told me how much the payment was. The sum made me blink. I laughed because this was student who “hated” marketing. Her message ended with: “you were right! I’m glad I didn’t quit.”
Don’t you quit either. Market your ebooks. It doesn’t take much effort.
