Have any questions regarding your book marketing efforts?

So, as an independent publisher, how do you plan to stand out amongst your competition? After dealing with rights and permissions, editors and publishers, how much time are you spending on marketing and identifying who your target audience will be, and what the best ways to reach them are. Once you identify your target market, how are you going to position yourself to reach those consumers that need your publication?

Your first step is creating a product that speaks to your target market. Focus on marketing to a niche, and growing from there. Build a website and fill it with compelling content and start a conversation with your potential readers. Open yourself up to your readership.

I know, it sounds easy on paper, but how do you start?

Send me a message, and see what I have to offer you, and let's discuss your books selling potential.

Your Business is Already Dying.

Initiate Change.

Innovate regardless of how difficult or expensive a change can be, you will never grow without it.

Systems can always be optimized.

Marketing efforts can always be re-thought, but without the desire to change, to innovate, your company will never live.

The Impact of Independent Publishers

In the last ten years, independent publishing has grown in popularity at a staggering pace. In a market once reserved for high dollar authors and big named publishers, the independents have broken through, and

have solidified a foothold in the industry. With the advent of the

internet, the publishing industry found themselves in a rapidly

expanding market, full of small and independent publishing…

The Value of an Idea

I am currently in the process of writing an article about perceived value and its importance in the marketplace. In my article, I discuss this often overlooked component to successful branding and marketing, and why it is absolutely vital for a book marketer or self-publisher to understand the importance of perceived value. Not only how it can increase sales, and produce loyal readers, but how, if not properly managed, it can undermine… Continue

I'm interested in addressing all the questions you've asked about book marketing, but I'm on a fixed income. I'd appreciate any tips you might offer.

It looks like you might be able to either profit by or contribute to my new Self Publishing group here on BMN.
Please take a look, we're trying to build it into a resource for writers who prefer to be their own publisher.

I send you greetings of peace and love from the rest of the family. They, like I, are always with you and never leave or forsake you. The angels and the rest of us want you to know how precious you are to us.

When I agreed to give up my divinity and be born in the flesh, I did so very willingly. I looked forward to the time when we, you and us, could all be together and share in everything that is. I looked forward to loving you, hugging you, comforting you and encouraging you so that, when your life gets tough, you will feel secure and supported enough to face whatever you have to face. I looked forward to being the one you could rely upon unconditionally for that strength, comfort and encouragement whenever and however you need it.

Not only that, I looked forward to sharing with you that we created you to love you, and that we so hoped and desired that you would love us back. We want you in our life, and we love it when you want us in yours. It was so exciting when I could turn to my disciples and expand our relationship to include friendship and true fellowship. I offer that friendship and fellowship to you today as well, and I look forward to your inviting me into your life in that way.

You can see there are many reasons why I came in the flesh so many years ago. There’s more! I also wanted to set you free from thoughts and behaviors that hurt you emotionally and spiritually. If you were hurt by people or experienced hard times in your life and lost things like your health, relationships, or your way of life because of disaster or unemployment, I wanted to give you the tips and tools as well as the encouragement to recover emotionally and spiritually from who or what hurt you so you could have the kind of life I want you to enjoy.

Most of you understand why I sacrificed my life for you and what an act of love that was. It is my hope that this letter will help you understand how very much more my life and ministry were to accomplish. I look forward to expanding our relationship now and forever.

Joyfully, Jesus
