Think like a publisher because you are one. You can now publish your book by yourself. To the dismay, large publishing houses are finding it difficult to believe that people can publish their books on their own lovebook.
The new ease of publishing books is accompanied by the fact that you need be involved in every aspect. From writing a captivating story to selling the books to your customers and all in between. Marketing is an art form. People who had never considered selling an object are now masters at marketing.
You can take solace in knowing there are many aspects of publishing, marketing and retail that are simple to understand and you will make it through it.
This is not the way to go if you are looking to make a successful career in self-publishing. Unless you publish a fantastic book the first round, that is. However, these things rarely happen. You will have to learn from each step.
Advertise your book everywhere. Advertising your book is key. People should be aware of it. Your book and your website are important. Blog about the subject matter of your book and add to it each day. People are more likely to buy your book when they see you actually know what you’re talking.
It is often said that you should write in a specific niche or particular genre when you first start out. As the saying goes, you can only please certain people at times. However, not everyone will enjoy your book so make sure to target those that are most likely.
Register for groups and blogs to share your book with others.
You can also modify the price of the book. Print on Demand is a new way to publish books. There are no standard rules. Adjust the book’s value based only on supply and demande, but still play an active role in selling.
There are several options to help you make your book available for others to enjoy.
