Hi! J here. Today’s post with be short and sweet. Now that you’ve Indie Pub’d your book and launched it, you need to market it. Here’s your secret, right up front: Market the Heck out of it! Marketing, marketing, marketing. It seems that’s all I ever think about these days.
I went to a writing conference this spring and took all Marketing sessions for the day. My head was ready to explode by the end of the day. But I did get a lot of very good information. One piece that really stuck out was a pie chart of all the types of marketing I should be doing. The pie chart came from Wayne English’s presentation. He’s with the Web Content Doctor and was kind enough to allow me to repost it here. Click on the link below labeled marketing pie to see the chart.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll tell you about my experiences with each of these topics. I’ll be spending the day today and Sunday at a craft fair selling and signing books. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Here’s a question for other Indie Pubs out there: What kinds of marketing are you doing? Is it successful? How do you define your success?
