Here are 11 insights on how to market your book successfully. They will only serve you well if you open your mind and heart and learn how to adapt to change, find new ways to do things, and put in the hard work necessary.
1. Seek to apply other lessons in life to how you go about marketing a book.
2. Re-frame your failures as opportunities to learn and grow.
3. Know what you are good at and accelerate your efforts in those areas. For the areas you fall short, either dismiss them or outsource for the help you need.
4. Always dream big but act at the level dictated by your skills, knowledge, resources, and opportunities posed. Fund a truthful blend of reality and hope.
5. Don’t deny or avoid real issues. Handle them head-on.
6. Get your facts straight and only act on what you know.
7. Improve your communication skills – style, vocabulary, voice, energy, enthusiasm, and follow-up.
8. Observe, listen, learn – then act, share, and collaborate.
9. Be opportunistic. Don’t wait for someone to invite you to the dance – go out and create opportunities for yourself.
10. Follow the rule of favors. Offer to help someone now so that you can ask for more later.
11. Your greatest asset to sell books? Your words! Yes, use certain words, in the right order and length, to present a need or desire of others to buy an encased collection of other words.
