If you are willing to take four-five actions each day to promote your products, you will have successful sales. Follow these steps to learn how to promote your book on line and make big sales:

Step One.

Do what you do best--write! Create several short "how-to" articles, short stories, poetry or humor, anywhere from 75-1200 words.

Prepare several lengths ofrepparttar 125070 same article. For one eMagazine I submitted a seventy-five-word article on how to write a short article. For a top business Web site, I expanded it to 900 words. For some, I only submit 400-500 word articles.

Take responsibility for book promotion yourself. If your publisher's sales disappoint you, your own marketing weak, you can still create ongoing, lifelong profits.

Online promotion is great if you are totally bashful or reluctant to "sell." You don't have to talk to anyone in person. You promote straight from your home or office.

Now, that's convenience! Learnrepparttar 125071 basics from teleclasses and seminars, an Online Promotion Coach,repparttar 125072 internet, and professional networking organizations.

Step Three.

Develop Internet savvy. When you don't take this step, you will hang back, and stay stuck in fear. Action spurs you on.

Take a free community college course, or visit your library for help. In just three hours, I learned about search engines, and other basics.

In turn, they will put your "signature" which includesrepparttar 125074 title of your book andrepparttar 125075 Web address where it can be purchased.

It doesn't have to be your Web site. With just one short article posted in a ezine, one bookcoaching client received eight emails asking for more information.

Step Five.
