This week we asked our community on Facebook to answer this question: How do you carve out time for book marketing? Here’s what they had to say:
Kevin Long: First priority of the day. One hour marketing without a break, social media and websites. – Kevin Long aka The Kindle King http://babystepspublishinglimited.com
Anne Schober: With my first book, I devoted hours a day, but was completely lost with what to doc who to reach out to, and what wad the best platform for my memoir. Today, with my second book recently released, I have done nothing. I am hoping for help from this association too help guide me in the right direction! anneschober.com
Nancy Adams McDonald: Set out a time to do multiple social media post, don’t post them but have them ready to post and have a schedule set up so all you have to do is add it on the day you have set in your schedule.
Thom Disch: For me the challenge is creating awareness of my book “Stop The Slip” and then building credability for the book by having good reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. I’ve created a short summary youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAzJW7Nifcc and I’ve been spending a lot of time getting people to write reviews. What I could use is a good PR agency for help in creating this awareness. Thom Disch, Stop The Slip
David Evans: I always do my writing in the morning, and other things, including marketing, in the afternoon. I am just beginning a new marketing program. I just became a regular blogger for Psychology Today, with my blog titled, “Can’t We All Just Get Along?” Psychology Today gives me a personal page with my blog, so I plan to put my books there to market them to my blog readers. My blog also has a link to my personal website, which is www.HelpUsHealAmerica.com. Thanks! David Evans
