Marketing your own book can seem like
a scary task. You poured your heart and soul into the
writing of it, and now when you think about marketing
your masterpiece, you think, Im a writer, not
But there is a simple way you can get the word out about
your book. It takes a little time, but the effort pays
More people will be interested in your book when they are
interested in you. Readers become interested in you when
they can read some of your writing...for free. You can
build your credibility, find readers, and establish
yourself as an expert in your field by writing and
(This method works even for fiction writers.)
You accomplish this by these means:
- by publishing articles on your website
- by creating an ecourse or ebook
- by publishing your own ezine or newsletter
- by publishing your articles in someone elses
Think about that last idea for a minute. Publishing
articles in other peoples ezines (or on their
websites) is the key, the secret, to creating a viral
The popularity of your book website is actually improved
when other sites link you to. But Google only likes
high-content links. Your articles provide this.
Not to mention that when you have your articles on more
and more websites there is a greater possibility that
someone will read your articles and do business with you.
The simple system that will market your book for you
contains only three steps:
Step 1: Write and Publish Articles
This really is the best way for you to promote your book.
The key is to write a useful, high-content article, and
send it to your newsletter and publish it on your
website. If you write fiction, write simple short stories
or poems, or provide excerpts from your novel.
(For a more information on marketing this way, please
read another of my articles, "Online Book
Marketing," at http://ezinearticles.com/?id=45696.)
Step 2: Distribute Your Articles
Send your articles or stories to article distribution
lists and ezine directories. These directories exist for
ezine owners and website owners to pick up free
reprintable content to use in their ezine or on their
website. You can find a list of these sites by searching
for articles sites.
This helps you, because if your article is picked up and
distributed by 10 ezine owners who each have 1000 people
in their list, your article will be sent to 10 000
Step 3: Your Articles Continue to be Distributed Virally!
When you submit to an articles directory, your article is
there to be reprinted. You can submit an article next
week, and ten years later it will still be there. Your
article can have a shelf life as long as you want, and
every time someone reprints your article, you get free
Bonus tip: If you include at the end of your article that
your article can be reprinted anywhere by anyone, anyone
who reads your article can reprint in on their website or
in their ezine.
To use the above example, if another 1000 people reprint
your article in some form, your business will be marketed
to 11 000 peoplein a very short period of time!
Imagine this process occurring time and time again, with
more than one article! How many interested readers will
end up at your site?
This is how you successfully market your book online.
