Easy E-Book Promotion Tips

Written by Lisa Maliga

Continued from page 1

Join e-groups. Yahoo is where you’ll find online communities on a myriad of subjects. And if you don’t find what you’re looking for, you can always create your own. The purpose of joining e-groups is to let people know your e-book exists. Therefore, if you wrote a novel, you’ll want to persuade readers to take a look at your book. You don’t want to hard sell them, risking ejection fromrepparttar group, but you do want to get a feel ofrepparttar 108521 online community and ease into your promotional tactic. If you’ve written a non-fiction book aboutrepparttar 108522 Civil War, you’ll want to investigate any group affiliated with that time period. Should your e-book be concerned with savingrepparttar 108523 whales,repparttar 108524 groups that are environmentally conscious, along with whale lovers associations, are categories to check out. Fiction writers can become associated with other authors, but don’t expect to rack up too many sales from them! You will oftentimes receive excellent advice and probably make countless online pals. Always read whatrepparttar 108525 group’s rules are and follow them. For example, I’m a member of a few soap making e-groups and know which ones accept advertising and those that forbid any type of promotion.

Write Articles. You have a distinct advantage over someone who doesn’t like crafting words and wants to sell their product online but can’t even think up an opening sentence, let alone several hundred words worth of literate text. Depending uponrepparttar 108526 subject of your e-book, you can always count on one thing – you’rerepparttar 108527 resident expert when it comes to that book you wrote. Should you have a hide-under-the-covers horror story or a derring do romance/adventure saga, you can always find an online outlet to freely market your tale. You might write aboutrepparttar 108528 geographical aspects of your book’s Scottish setting in a travel magazine or on a Scottish online site. Maybe your book on how to crochet will be widely received byrepparttar 108529 crocheting community after you contribute an article [with a byline including your book’s URL of course!] to a crafting site. Well-written articles are always appreciated and as long as you have a byline, you’ll notice an increase in sales.

Yahoo Display Classified Ads While there are many places online that offer free classifieds, Yahoo display classifieds are definitely a good place to begin. Why? Yahoo is well known. The ads are free. You can include a photo of your book’s cover. And you can see how many people actually looked at your advertisement. Just remember it runs for 30 days and it has to be renewed monthly.

Due to space limitations I can only listrepparttar 108530 other methods of online e-book promotion such as getting reviews, sending out press releases, posting on message/bulletin boards, and being interviewed. Remember,repparttar 108531 more time you devote to publicizing your e-book,repparttar 108532 more sales that are likely to result from your efforts.
