If you are not a big writer, if it is your first book and you don’t have a lot of experience, you are probably wondering where you will be able to advertise your finished product.
While there are many options for you to choose from, I would like to introduce you to some practical ways to advertise it, without putting your hand too deep into your pockets.
A fairly easy way for you to start promoting your book is by creating a website. This is a must especially if you wish to continue your writing career. You readers should be able to know a few things about you, so it is important that you include some personal information along with pictures and reviews of your book.
Building a website can be a lot easier than you think. Even if you are not an expert on the topic, there are many websites online that can help you create a professional and personalized website for a very low and affordable price.
Don’t forget to include your contact information as well as a direct link to where your readers will be able to buy your book.
There is no easier way for you to promote your work than through social media. You probably already own a Twitter and/or Facebook account, so use them to your advantage by making posts about your book. You can Tweet and share reviews you get, information about upcoming events like signings or read as well as some quotes from your book in order to get people interested.
You can also reach out to other authors or people of your close environment and ask them to share your posts with their friends. Social media has a great power in our day and time and you will be able to reach out to many people and gain new readers and followers with little work.
Last but certainly not least, a smart way for you to advertise your book is by reaching out to book bloggers and people who review books and ask them to give your book a review in exchange for a free copy.
This is a great way for you to advertise your book and reach out to a lot of people easily, as many will be interested in reading your work after a review of a person they follow.
Advertising your book doesn’t have to be all that difficult. If you’re just starting out and you need some followers and some recognition before making the big step and asking stores and libraries to give you some shelf space, these ideas can really help you out.
The most important thing is to do is to try connecting with the people who read your book so you can get direct feedback and make people appreciate your character. You will come to find that advertising will become a lot easier after you start building a social following.
