The Book Marketing School Series is about teaching you how to sell your books based on experience learned in the trenches—running this company, ambulance plus my own publishing company, and learning by trial and error.

Get Our There and Connect With People

Think about what works not just for selling more books, but selling anything at all. To sell, you have to really connect with people. Successful salespeople don’t stay hidden in their offices working on reports, they get out there and connect with people. Successful politicians don’t hide away, they talk with as many people as they can. No matter what you’re selling—products, services, or ideas—you have to get out there and connect with people. Be proactive. Look for opportunities to connect. In fact, create opportunities. The real foundation of your entire online presence isn’t a website, your blog, or your Facebook page. The real foundation of your online presence is the relationship you form with each person you come in contact with. One of the best ways you can meet people online is by offering them something they can use, and one of the most effective ways to do that is with content marketing.

Content marketing is creating and distributing
relevant and valuable content.

So What Is Content Marketing Really?

Content marketing, unlike many other forms of marketing, is not about manipulating people or trying to get them to do something. Content marketing is about showing people—directly—that you have something useful and beneficial for them. It’s about giving instead of taking. Many content marketers don’t ever ask for something in return; all they want is to share what they know. Others have a product or service available, but they don’t want to be obnoxiously pushy about it. They figure it’s enough to show you how good they are and let you make the decision yourself. Over the past couple of years I’ve done extensive research and experimenting. What works best for long-term results is content marketing, and the heart of your content marketing is a blog that provides useful posts on a consistent basis. These posts have one overall task to accomplish and that is to create a relationship with your readers by proving you can provide what they’re looking for.

8 Steps to Sell More Books 

Here are the basic 8 steps to building your own platform and to sell more books:

  1. Determine your personal brand and target reader
  2. Do thorough keyword research
  3. Build a website with a blog and write amazingly useful posts using your long-tail keywords
  4. Optimize your website and blog posts for SEO
  5. Build relationships with bloggers in similar niches and guest blog
  6. Use social media to engage in conversation
  7. Build your mailing list
  8. Optimize your Amazon pages

Each one of those steps could provide enough information to fill a book or give a workshop on, so expect at least another blog post or even a series of blog posts for each step.
