I have been active with the Writer's Guild of Texas in helping educate members on simple marketing techniques authors can use to find readers, especially if they are on a shoestring budget. Through that, I just started a new blog called Marketing Tips for Authors. The blog is not even a week old and is already finding readers around the world. I you would like to take a look at it, stop by at:
Already, we have touched on the importance of setting up an internet presence with websites, URLs, blogs and social sites, how to increase book sells by encouraging people to loan their copy of your book out and a host of other topics.
Feel free to leave a comment and if you have book marketing experience you wish to share with authors, let me know and we can set up a guest blog appearance.
Also, you will see at the top right of the blog a link to sign up for free video tips for authors. Each week, I will e-mail subscribers free video tips that walk them through some of the more technical aspects of marketing your book on a shoestring budget. Show, not tell- right?
I hope you will find something useful in these tips.
Have a great 2009!
