Ebook Marketing Panic: The Solution

Ebook Marketing Panic: The Solution

You’re writing ebooks, and publishing them. However ebook marketing is a mystery. A huge wave of content streams onto the Web daily, and you know that many thousands of ebooks are published each month. How do you stand out from the crowd and SELL your ebooks?

The rich get richer…

Nowhere is this more true than in ebook marketing. Once you have sales, Amazon will happily promote you, which leads to even more sales.

How do you get those initial sales to kickstart the process? It’s not easy. Time was, you could create a blog and sell, easily. That happy state of affairs ended in 2012, when corporations woke up to the power of the Web. Today, large companies flood the Web with content.

In 2015, small ebook publishers struggle, because for new bloggers, blogging isn’t the sure route to instant sales that it was three years ago. Of course, if you already have a well-established blog, kudos to you. 🙂

“My ebook marketing isn’t working…”

Over the past few months, we’ve received daily messages from ebook authors telling us that their ebook marketing isn’t working. Authors are spending more and more time promoting their ebooks; marketing is turning into a full-time job.

Some authors give up ebook marketing altogether — it’s just too hard. They don’t have a strategy, and are confused with their options.

Paying to play works. However, you need to have initial capital, because you’ll need to spend money to see which advertising options work for your ebooks. It’s a challenge to discover where the readers for your ebooks hang out, so you can advertise to them. When you do discover an advertising venue which works, it may well be too expensive to be viable over time.

No time to write your book?

Everyone has time to write a book — yes, even you. 🙂

When I read this morning that Sir John Mortimer was dead, I remembered his wonderful autobiography, ““Clinging to the Wreckage”.

If you think you have no time to write, consider that Sir John not only worked as a barrister, but was also a hugely successful writer. Either career could have filled all his time, had he allowed it to.

Finding time to write is always simple. You choose to write over the option to do something else:

* Rather than watching TV, you choose to write;

* Rather than sleeping until an hour before you leave for work, you get up an hour earlier and use that time to write;

* Rather than lazing around on the weekend, or doing chores, you choose to write.

And so on. There is always time to write — just claim it.

Read the NYT’s obitJohn Mortimer, Creator of Rumpole, Dies at 85 – Obituary (Obit) – NYTimes.com:

“His memoirs, including ‘Clinging to the Wreckage’ (1982), ‘Murderers and Other Friends: Another Part of Life’ (1994), drop dozens of names of the theater and movie people he spent time with. There are trays upon trays of cocktails in his stories, and interviews late in his life note the presence of what was described in one as a ‘comfortably large Guinness that he is drinking for his health even though it is still a long time until lunch.’”
