29 Nov Proper Promotion for Books and Information Products You Sell
Do you have electronic books or information products that you are selling online? This can be a good niche to enter, and you will find that it can be quite competitive. Even though you might find some competition here, you will see that there is plenty of space for everyone to do well. Of course, you have to know some of the proper ways to promote your books and products. Promotion is still very important, and without it, you can fade into obscurity rather quickly.
Quality Reviews are Important
Good reviews are naturally going to be important to the success of any product. However, you have to make sure that they are real and honest reviews. What does this mean? It means that you should never pay for a review. You may have heard about the kerfuffle in the literary world about authors writing their own glowing reviews, or hiring others to do so for them. People find out about these things! It is a good way to ruin one’s reputation as an author, that’s for certain.
When you are looking for reviews, you can look for review outlets, such as blogs, and ask them if they might be interested in providing an honest review of your work. Choose high quality sites to do the reviews. Be ready to get some negative reviews, though. It happens to everyone, and a writer should be able to shrug off negative reviews.
Free Copies Could Help
If you want to get the word out about your book, then you might want to give some free copies away. You do not want to give away all of your work, and you have to make sure that you are pricing your work fairly, but you may want to give away a few copies to start people talking about your book. Giveaways can help to get the reviews rolling in from actual readers on sites such as Amazon and iTunes, as well.
Writers write, and that means that you should be creating more products. When you have more products on the market, each acts as an advertisement for all of your other work. This can help to propel sales across the board.
The above are just a few of the proper promotion ideas that you are going to want to consider for your e-book marketing. If you have been selling e-books and you are successful, what tips might you like to share with all of the newbie writers trying to make a mark?
