I am publishing my own book and am going to market it through amazon.com books myself.

This is my small business. I am then going to advertise my book using USA Today, LA Times and New York Times (advertising costs are reasonable and their distribution is HUGE.) Am also going to buy some banner ads and other ads from amazon books.

Any other authors out there with comments? :?:

I believe banner ads are a waste of your money, as many people are blind to it these days.

You need to think outside the traditional realm of advertising your book.

Perhaps:
- Getting on as many podcasts as possible to talk about your book
- Going on social media forums, even Quora, answering questions where you can mention your book while still answering their question
- Finding your target audience and frequenting places they frequent
- Writing multiple blog posts on Medium.com about topics from your book, and more.

I would suggest checking out Ryan Holiday's book, "Growth Hacker Marketing (https://www.amazon.com/Growth-Hacker-Marketing-Primer-Advertising-ebook/dp/B00EWPMUKM)" and listen to how he marketed his book "The Obstacle is the Way" and you'll get some good ideas on how approach non-traditional routes of marketing your book.

What is the book? Without knowing the subject it is hard to know where to advertise. The avenues you have mentioned so far are very general.

What is the content about? With today's strategies there are many different ways to reach your target audience, but I would like more background intel to establish a real plan of attack. I definitely agree with @janeoftrades regarding everything mentioned, those are imperative steps definitely. Also a nice landing page you run ads to is also essential.

For this, you can go for digital marketing services provided by various digital agencies in Mumbai (https://syspree.com/). This will help you to promote your book on social media and that will help you to create awareness about your book on large platform.

Consider press release. There are lots of free and paid press release. Search google with press release websites and make a list of websites. Write a press release about your book release and send it to PR website.

I suggest you to do brandings like facebook marketing or display advertisement in sem. Its depends on the moto of the book and you can target potential audience by doing digital marketing in less budget rather than wasting money by doing traditional markting like banner or tv ads or news ads etc

The best way to promote your book is making a conference or official presentation, where you could sell exemplars. Have no idea how it works? Find an agency that helps you with organizations' problems. Smth like this https://bstars.eu/

offline and online marketing are both great for book promotion, but i will suggest you to communicate with companies that provides these types of services which not only publish but also put books in the stores and online.

Try to use direct mail marketing. It will be helpful to know people about your book.


Hello ! I agree with you that learning about this book is useful. I have not read this book yet, but I am going to read this book in the near future, because it seems to me that this book is good and this book is worthy to be read. Reading is just as useful as writing. Writing with the coursework papers writing service PapersOwl (https://papersowl.com/coursework-help) is even more useful because the service can help with checking the papers. Checking the papers is a useful thing because the person who has already written the paper can know about the errors that exist in his or her paper and correct them. That is, writing with correction is as useful as reading such books that are recommended by you.

I agree with you in the fact that there is a necessity to focus on the branding of the book! Such a social network like Quora is a real assistant in attracting people who can become an active audience who will read the book.

If you are planning to sell them online, then digital marketing is the best platform to promote your business.

Selling over the Internet is not a difficult task today because these technologies are developed in 2019!
Therefore, I think that if author will listen to your advice, author of this thread can get a lot of positive sales!

There are blogs dedicated to reviewing books like yours. You will gain traction a lot faster by riding a successful media distribution channel than paid advertising, IMO. Good luck with your book!

I am working on my book. Like many others, I need a lot of sheets. I write not only on all kinds of notebooks, but I also have special waterproof, durable notebooks that I would recommend to those who like to write and do this often and everywhere, at home, on a trip, traveling, etc. These are waterproof notebooks & field books (https://thestationeryspecialist.com/best-waterproof-notebooks/).
