If you could dedicate an hour a day to promoting and marketing your book, what would you do?
If you only had 10 minutes a day to push your book, how would you make use of your time efficiently?
No matter how much time you can give to sell and publicize your book, you’ll need to make several decisions, including answers to the following questions:
- Exactly how much time can I carve out daily for this?
- Do I have a budget to play with?
- Which areas should I prioritize when it comes to sales: bookstores, libraries, organizations or other opportunities?
- Which areas should I focus on when it comes to the news media: radio, television, print or online?
- How should I zero in on social media: blogging, podcasting, networking?
Which platforms should I use, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Linked In, Pinterest or Instagram?
- Will I seek out speaking engagements?
As you can see, there are more things to do than you have time for but that’s not a legitimate excuse to feel overwhelmed and as a result, do nothing. You can do a lot, but you must commit to a plan, lay aside time and resources to execute it, and to have the courage, vision and energy to make your book the success you believe it should be..
