For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
Hi all, It's me, Sean Toh from Singapore.
Last week, I had this idea of sending my books to some established authors. I told myself that I had nothing to lose but the printing cost of the book and the postage cost needed to send the book to the destination address. Hence, I started writing a few thank you notes and send my books to my targeted authors.
Within the next few day, I recieved a few thank you letters and notes from some of them. This idea from John Kremer's book is a good one because I used it right away as a marketing tool to show ordinary people that even established writers have given my book a support.
I just want to conclude that this idea actually come from John Kremer's "1001 ways to market your books", which I just took it to apply it for my marketing campaign. Writing and publishing is the only beginning of book selling, marketing your book really need ideas and creativity. I have to try all kinds of strategies and just do it. Don't be too afraid of rejection! We all have nothing to lose but lots to gain!
