Book Marketing Club’s blog content is being built upon and organized into five pillars that support an overarching umbrella. All these elements, when working together will help you sell more books and build a sustainable author-based business.
Your Book Marketing Plan
The umbrella, if you will, is your book marketing plan. If you don’t plan, well, you know the rest. A book marketing plan helps you stay focused and measures results so you can intelligently pivot when necessary. This plan is held up by five pillars.
Pillar 1: Author Branding
Your brand as an author affects everything you do, and so it is the cornerstone of all book marketing content.
Pillar 2: Online Book Marketing
These are assets and strategies you can use to build a platform and sell your books without ever leaving your home!
Pillar 3: Offline Book Marketing
Sometimes you have to leave your house to sell more books. Author appearances get you in front of real, live readers.
Pillar 4: Speaking
Speaking, whether in person or on video, is probably one of the best methods available for marketing your book.
Pillar 5: Public Relations
Although publicity and media relations may require some effort, the potential Return on Investment (ROI) is high.
