5 Ways to Use Instagram in your Book Marketing as an Indie Author

As an indie author your book marketing approach should include some social media, and for some genres, it should include a lot of social media!

Pew Research Center’s report released at the end of 2016 shows us that:

7 Ways To Generate More Sales Using Linkedin

As someone who makes his living teaching professionals how to utilize LinkedIn to generate more business for themselves, I remain convinced that the platform is one of the most exciting – and misunderstood – business opportunities available right now.

For whatever reason, LinkedIn can’t seem to shake the notion that it’s “only” a place to find a job or hire a new employee.

But as I’ve learned spending 48 straight months selling products and services on the site, LinkedIn is one of the biggest (and best) opportunities online right now for you to generate oodles of sales leads, add new clients and land new business.

I want to spend the rest of this post sharing the specific path I see successful professionals taking on LinkedIn when it comes to generating more sales leads, adding customers and increasing revenue.

Some of these tips might seem counterintuitive at first glance, but that’s why they work so well – they break from the conventional wisdom and outdated beliefs about LinkedIn.

Don’t Know How to Market Your Book? Start in Your Own Backyard

The No. 1 question I receive from writers is “How do I get published?” The most common question after that is: “How do I market my book?”

That first question is far more straightforward to answer, and an easier task for most people. Getting a book published remains a fairly consistent process regardless of who you are, where you live, how much money you have, or what type of book you’ve written.

Marketing, on the other hand, has an incredible number of variables that depend on knowing your reader (your target market) and what resources you have to reach them.
