THIS IS TITAN’S ADVICE TO ALL AUTHORS (NEW AND OLD) ON THE BEST WAYS TO MARKET THEIR BOOKS AND ACHIEVE THE BEST SALES…

 

Getting started with the basics:

You have completed your book, after a long hard slog of writing and now its time to promote. Now whether you are self publishing or going through a publisher, you should be promoting your book! 

A lot of publishers will promote for you and this is great, but never underestimate the power you have when it comes to your book. You wrote it, you love it, let that passion shine through to your potential readers.

 

If you havent already then do these now –

 

*Set up a facebook fan page, whether it is for you as an author, or for your books, you must have a platform to launch yourself from.

*Once you have your page, join groups and promote it. remember to advertise your book to those who read your genre, “like for like” events are great! But you also need to be reaching your target audience (people who will read your books). It would be pointless to be a horror writer and have a following filled with romance fans who don’t like/read horror. 

 

*Set up a twitter account. it is a huge social media with millions of people on there, do not miss out on this huge opportunity because you will shoot yourself in the foot

*Remember to use #hastags they help with trending and mean more people will see them #greatread #lovereading #horrorfans – you get the idea.

*the faster you learn, the more followers you will gain and the more of your target audience you will reach.

 

*Get a blog. although the ‘fad’ surrounding blogs is not as huge, the people who used them before for reading and finding things out, still use them. Again know your market. whether you use Tumblr, wordpress or google Blogger, say what your write and why they should be interested in what you have to say. 

*many blogs now use hashtags now, or tags, basically the same thing. they will go to the place where people looking for what you have wrote about can find you. MAKE SURE YOU USE THESE.
