Often, the biggest part of successful book marketing for a self-publishing author is simply being ready when opportunities to promote and sell arise. From having your book “elevator pitch” polished to learning to toot your own horn, this readiness will be your most powerful asset when the time comes to sell that book you’ve worked so hard to finish.
One of the best ways to prepare for selling is simply keeping your book with you as often as possible, just in case. Having paperback copies on hand puts you in an excellent position to nimbly respond to spontaneous opportunities. You’ll make positive impressions, important connections and plenty of unanticipated sales! By keeping copies of your book close-by you’ll be ready to make the most of:
- book-signing events
- radio, television and newspaper publicity outreach
- book award and review submissions
- book giveaways to promote on social media
- gifts to family, friends and influencers
