Introducing All-New Author Copy Discounts, Just in time for your Holiday Marketing efforts

The signs of fall are popping up everywhere: cooler weather, changing leaves, pumpkin spice everything. That means the holidays are just around the corner, and the stress and busy schedules that go with it will be here soon. The holidays offer great marketing opportunities for authors, and if you start planning now, you can be enjoy the benefits of holiday marketing while still enjoying the holiday season with friends and family.

Here are some marketing ideas to get you started:

  1. Get your book on the shelves at local businesses and indie bookstores. Talk to these businesses now about a holiday marketing plan. Early bird shoppers have already started, and you want your book on the shelf before the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping begins.
  2. The holidays, in particular, offer all types of opportunities for children’s book authors. Spread the word about your children’s book by posting flyers at local day care centers, libraries, and schools. Also, make sure your book is available at local toy stores.
  3. Host a holiday giveaway, and use social media to promote it. Be sure to use #hashtags on blog and social media posts that are specific to your book’s subject matter.
  4. Offer an eBook on Amazon. Amazon gift cards are one of the most popular gifts among coworkers and casual acquaintances as well as family members. If you already have an eBook version, ask your readers for a priceless holiday gift: a good review online!
  5. Remember the classics. Now is a great time to do marketing classics like book readings, book fairs, limited edition offers, and insider access.
