These are tactics that are strongly recommended for successful book marketing after publication.
These are the marketing products and services determined to be most popular by our authors for the month of December 2009, listed below in alphabetical order:
|Amazon Extreme Package
Save 25% on 3 amazing marketing tactics centered around Amazon: The Amazon Kindle Edition, Search Inside the Book, and the Keyword Search Submission Service. Plus a free copy of the Amazon best selling book, Sell Your Book on Amazon.
|Amazon Keyword Search Submission
Participating books are “tagged” with applicable terms and keywords on Amazon’s Product Detail page. This encourages other visitors to your page to “tag” your book with the same keywords and phrases, which can give more “weight” to those terms in Amazon’s search results.
|Amazon Search Inside the Book
Amazon claims that books participating in this program enjoy “significant” sales improvement, on average, over books that do not.
|Barnes & Noble See Inside
Barnes & Noble’s answer to Amazon’s “Search Inside the Book” program. Books that participate in this program receive a “See Inside” icon next to their Barnes & Noble cover image, which invites potential customers to electronically “flip” through a small section of the book.
|Book Blast Package
Save 25% on 5 of our popular marketing services that can blast your book into the stratosphere: Custom Press Release, PR Publicist Campaign, 60 Second Book Video Trailer, Book Review Submission Service, and 5 hours of Personal Marketing Assistance to put it all together.
|Book Review Submission (10 reviewers)
Securing positive book reviews is the first step toward building word-of-mouth buzz for your book. The first step toward receiving any kind of review is first submitting your book for review. We can help.
|Bookmarks (500 count)
Part of a coordinated promotion campaign includes marketing materials like bookmarks. Bookmarks are a wonderful promotional item to pass out because people rarely throw them away; they actually use them! They might as well use a bookmark that promotes your book.
|Business Cards (500 count)
Every author needs a business card. What better way to promote your book and yourself at the same time than with professional business cards that feature your book’s cover on one side?
Not only are these custom t-shirts a great conversation starter, and a great wardrobe choice for book fairs, author signings, and other events, but they also make great gifts for family and friends.
|ForeWord Magazine Co-Op Advertisement
Co-op advertising allows you to secure premium, full-color exposure for your book in a high-quality trade publication for a minimal amount of money.
