The Book Marketing Network

For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers

I just did something that I’ve never done before. Something
I ignorantly hoped to avoid but always knew would happen. I just paid hard
earned dough to promote my books. Well, not my books individually, but my blog
and author’s site. I signed up for two marketing ideas that I believe may
actually work. I also have a third PR person in line to do search engine
optimization. Who would have thought being a writer and selling books could get
so complicated. The first site I signed up for is called Blogcatalog.com. They
drew me in with a special $50 off offer and the promise that I can cancel
hassle free after three months and they will refund all of my money if I don’t
see results. Can’t lose on that deal. Anyway, what they do is advertise your blog
through their sites and social media and send out postings and things. I
figure, why not try it if there’s a full money back guarantee. If it works,
great! If not, no biggie. The second thing I’m trying today is a site called
submitedge.com. It’s pretty interesting what they do. For a relatively cheap
price (I paid $55) they take your keywords and suggestions and have a
professional write a totally unique article that they then submit to hundreds
of sites and blogs looking to post information. They have links back to your
websites. The theory being, that if the reader likes the info at hand they’ll
click on your link to see more. You even get to read and make suggestions on
the article before it’s posted. Sounds pretty good. All in all, my investment
for marketing and promoting my seven, soon to be eight published books is a
grand total of  $239.40. We’ll see how
all this goes. I’ll keep everyone posted of my results. Oh, and once I get this
search engine optimization thing going on, I’ll let you all know how that
works. Here’s to infinite sales!

The other costs was the blog offer. What do you think is the best paid way to promote sales? Thanks, John.

The submitedge article submission service for $55 won't likely produce any results.

I haven't seen the blogcatalog offer before. I'll look forward to the results.

Not sure where you spent the other $100+ dollars since you don't list any other costs.
