The 50+ Places Where You Need to Promote Your Books – Book promotion ideas

If you are interested in promoting your book and growing your community on a stable author platform you might also enjoy this LinkedIn article, where I have outline the foundation for your book selling platform.

One of the many struggles of an author starts only after the book is published. Writing can be a struggle in itself, but is your vocation, your passion.

But of course on the other hand there are many self-publishing success stories as well.

Self-promotion on the other hand…

Now that is a totally different matter.

I am here to give you the good news, though!

A book promotion roadmap.

There are plenty sites where you can promote your book and reach a wider audience. Most of these websites are offering you free promotion, especially if you also offer the books for free or with discounts. Some of them you will need to pay in order to benefit their services. Either way, it could be a good start for your new released book or any of your already published books.

For starters, you need to understand that if you want (new) readers, you need to get out there in the world, promote your book, talk about it and make it accessible to everyone.

I make it a easier for you. We compiled a list of sites where you can promote your book.

    It’s a huge list and I would like to add another one. Kindlerella is offering a free book promotion as well, and you can even choose the date yourself. You get a free exposure on their blog for a while and they’ll send you a confirmation email once they add your book.

    The best book promotion site is actually Amazon, sorry to say. We’ve doubled sales every 45 days since the end of 2019 by contributively commenting on reviews of books related to ours, Stack the Legal Odds in Your Favor, which has been called “the most important book written this century for Americans!” We also simultaneously highly recommend You Have the Right to Remain Innocent with almost every comment. Nobody ever thinks of this super-easy, free, and effective way of putting a book in front of your intended audience. Lastly, if you value your own life or the lives of loved ones and live in Amerika, these two books are absolutely crucial reads.
