Book Marketing For Writers

Create a marketing strategy for your book.

Book Marketing

You can’t expect to just write and have visitors come to you – that’s too passive. – Anita Campell

The single biggest factor separating a book from success is book marketing. After all, how are potential readers going to buy your book if they don’t know about it. It makes no difference if you have the best story or the most original plot, if readers have never heard about your book, you are dead in the water.

With hundreds of books published each month, how will you make your book stand out from the crowd?

Most blogs you read will have been written by writers that have, if you are lucky, worked out one small tactic or had some success with one approach. This is great for them but is pretty useless for anyone else. Despite what many writers believe marketing is a science not an art. There is a set blueprint for how to develop a strategy and it is something that you can learn. It is not complicated and it is not about one single technique or new-fangled approach; it is about solid marketing principles that have worked for years across multiple industries.

In this course, we present these ideas in a way that we know works for authors. We know because we tried and tested them. We present them in a way you will be able to quickly grasp and apply to your own book. In fact, we teach a technique, in opening of the course, that you will be able to apply immediately and see results within days, if not hours.

In the course you will discover:

  • How to sell more books by appealing directly to your perfect reader.
  • How to create a book marketing strategy that will work for you and your book.
  • How to build a long term marketing system that will keep your book selling month after month.

How The Course Works

This course has three parts:

1. Explaining the theory

The first step is to know what you don’t know.

That means that each part of this course starts by outlining the key concepts in a way that makes sense. Only by getting the theory can you then apply the same concepts to your own writing.

2. Learning the skills

The second step is to turn the concepts into skills.

Knowing that you need to create content to attract readers is great, but being able to identify the best content to create and knowing how and when to promote it is where the magic lies.

Learning to build your skills will be the key to your success.

3. Practicing the skills

The final step is to perfect your skills.

With each concept and each skill will come examples on how to use and apply these skills. This will give you the framework to practice and fine tune your new abilities.

What will happen when you sign up:

  1. On payment you will get a welcome email with all the sign up details.
  2. On 1 December 2016, the course will begin.
  3. You will get an email to remind you to log on.
