I am planning on having in person workshops for authors about social media, publishing your books and more. Visionary Meetings would be a great place for authors to meet their readers.

Book Cover Resources for Authors

book marketingAre you having trouble finding inexpensive images for your book cover? There are sites that you can find some fairly decent graphics for free. I’ve listed a few here.

When looking for an image for either your book cover of blog posts for your website make sure it says that you can use it for commercial use. Since you are an author and writing and selling books is a business, you will be using it for commercial use.

When selecting a book cover, try to find an image that isn’t used too much and that is unique. My favorite graphic website is Pixabay. I’ve noted some other image websites that you might be interested in.

Enjoy!

Earn Money as a Writer

I realize that sometimes you need to make money while you’re ramping up your book sales. While you’re in the process of getting your book launched, you may need to have money to pay bills.

writerThe number of writing jobs is enormous. With the evolution of the Internet, there are more and more jobs available to write good web content among other things on the Internet.

Within your area, there will be a good number of small business owners where you may be able to find work as a writer. The number of opportunities for a writer is very high and this is a great field to work in.

To look just be on the realm of grabbing a job as a writer, you could also look at doing some freelance writing. If you’re not happy with the amount of money that you could make within the writing field, you could look at supplementing this on the side by either of these two following websites: www.elance.com or Fiverr.com. On Elance, you are able to bid on projects that are listed as well as set up a profile to showcase your best work. Fiverr is a great place to start out and build your experience. You can create search criteria so that jobs that meet what you want can be e-mailed to you. This is a great way to supplement your income.

Writing jobs are out there for the taking. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, writing jobs will grow in line with the general economy over the next decade. This means that you will see probably about average growth for the industry but you could see a great deal more growth if you focus on Internet writing. This is a very flexible industry in which you have potentially a greater chance at dictating your terms and conditions and how you would like to work. Do not underestimate also the opportunity to work as a freelancer because you could command higher rates and this would increase the amount of flexibility you would have.

Book marketing on the internet today

book marketingBook marketing on the internet today has changed dramatically over the past ten years. Today’s techniques for promoting and selling your books on the internet requires an expanding array of multimedia features and capabilities, much different from days past. Below is a technique and approaches every book marketer should consider including in their efforts to increase website traffic, sales and revenues.

One of the most important ways to build your trust among your potential customers is to get involved somehow with teaching this topic to others. Even if it is a basic and simple process or procedure, the process of thinking through, writing it out, developing lesson plans, etc. will be invaluable to you. Once developed, separate the materials into small sections for delivery and distribution on the Internet.

There are a number of ways to market the materials to potential customers.

  • Creating weekly blog posts
  • Set the individual segments up into an email marketing auto responder program that sends the messages out to a list of clients and customers over a predetermined frequency.

With distribution in this method, it gives you the perfect opportunity to include small “snippets” of promotion for your book and builds a reputation of trust among your clients or future customers. You will be amazed at how effective this particular technique is. Not only will it give you help with sales but it will reinforce your knowledge in those areas that you were already familiar with.
