How To Sell Books With Social Media

“THIS ARTICLE IS PROMOTING 2 SERVICES WE OFFER”

There have always been various ways to reach more readers and sell more books.

One of the main things is to try to find a balance between time spent Tweeting about your new book and the time writing your new book.

Make sure you don’t waste your time on Facebook or Twitter.

As an author you have two big jobs: one is to create GREAT CONTENT and then to get that content in front of your audience.

Breadcrumbs – creating content and posting on various social media networks is a way to lead people to your books, there are several things here to know.

First you need to create great, quality posts then make sure they get shared, so you need to post a lot on as many platforms you can.

Here is a list of my recommendations:

It’s not just about you – the purpose is to create or share QUALITY content and to be useful, don’t make it only about you. “BUY MY BOOKS” doesn’t offer any value to the customer.

Be There – engage, respond and interact with people it’s the easiest way to get noticed from responding to comments to creating events and everything in between.

Great Design – The first impression counts, since people won’t stop to click you book if it’s not presented nicely. Try this, it will help a lot!

Value Your Time – Get help, don’t spend hours creating a Facebook Cover or trying to secure your Author Website.

There are a lot of people who can help you. Spend your time on what you are good at, and what you enjoy.

    Great article! Social media is a tool we didn’t have twenty years ago. It has been critical to my success. Once a good piece is written, those on social media sell it and sell me. It’s all about building good relationships and communicating regularly! I just released “WHY NOT KILL HER: A Juror’s Perspective – The Jodi Arias Death Penalty Retrial” and people are talking about it because I never let the conversation stop. Great Article!
