Writing a book is not easy. It will drain your brain out of all the ideas and thoughts you have. Once you’ve finished a book, every writer will get the sense of achievement, but there’s a part your brain that will scare you. What if you can’t sell it? What if no one wants to buy your work? For all the writers out there, we know that the money you’ll earn out of the book is not the best thing that will give you the sense of accomplishment. We want people to read and appreciate our works. Stop your worries because there are a lot of ways that can help you sell more copies of your book. Let me give you the four most important ways on how you can do it.
1. Find your market
As the writer, you know first-hand which is your target market depending on the content of your book. You know if it is intended for teens, single ladies, a parent, or other audiences like that. Once you have that decided, you have to look for a particular community where your target market will be noticed.
2. Make the connection
Once you’ve found the community which you think will have a high probability of getting interested in your work, you have to start joining the activities of the particular community. Let me set an example. If your book is about raising a child, then your market are the parents. Start finding different communities through social media. Once you got that established, you can start introducing your book.
3. Be proud
You should never feel shy about promoting your work. The key is to promote, promote and promote. Don’t stop because with so many things that are going on the web, the only time your work will be noticed is you find your book on the trending list. You can do a promotion to make a noise. Start by making a little contest like the 300th follower on your social media account will get a free copy of your book. You just have to think of something unique that can catch people’s attention.
4. Don’t Stop
You just have to continue thinking of new ideas to introduce your book to the public. Giving out book samples is also a good marketing strategy. If you can get your book reviewed, that would be an advantage.
Just keep believing in yourself and you’ll do just fine. It will just be a matter of time, and you can sell thousands of copies of your book. Who knows? You could be the next best seller author of all time.
