SELF PUBLISHING - Making your eBook Visible
Many of us, including myself, have never had experience in marketing, but don't let that stop you. It's never too late to learn something new, and besides, you might find you enjoy it.
You may not feel comfortable with all the marketing strategies you read about, so to start with, my suggestion is to choose some that you are happy to try.
In my previous Self Publishing Your eBook - Part 6 - Marketing Your eBook, I listed a few ideas to get you started and I'm adding to that list here:-
FREE promotion day(s)
Everyone loves a bargain, so why not let readers download your eBook FREE for a specified time period. Not only will the visibility of your book improve if you have it published on Amazon, for example, but there is also the possibility that those people who download it and enjoy the read, will tell their family and friends. Remember, by word of mouth is very powerful.
If you do decide to go FREE, advertising your promotion will help to increase its success. The following sites are just some that can help at no cost. Having said that, not all these sites guarantee that your book will appear, but it's worth a try. You will also find that the Author Marketing Club list other similar sites that you can click on to submit your eBook for advertising:-

Of course, making all these submissions is time consuming but there is help. For the sum of $40, you can employ eBook Booster to do it for you. eBook Booster will submit your FREE promotion to up to 45 sites. There again, it isn't guaranteed that all these sites will feature your book, but well worth the cost nevertheless when one has time constraints.
