The 7 Questions All Authors Must Ask Themselves When Marketing Books

If you can successfully answer these questions, you will be on your way to marketing your book and branding with results:

1.      Does your book deliver the benefits that readers expect and truly desire?

2.      Is your brand timely and relevant?

3.      Is your book priced right – high enough to make a profit but low enough to compete and remain affordable?  Is the price based on a consumer’s perception of value?

4.      Is your book – and brand – properly positioned?

5.      Are your marketing materials and book consistent with the branded message presented?

6.      Are you properly supporting your book with publicity, social media, speaking, and advertising?

7.      Do you sell the book in terms of the ideal message it presents, focusing on how you deliver something that people desire, need, or are curious about?
