Did you know that the work you put in before your book launch determines the success of your book?
And like the cat says if you don’t know where you want to go or how you want to publicize your book nothing will get done which also means no success.
Of course you could wait for launch day, but you may be left wondering why the hundreds of sales you were expecting don’t happen.
Writing a book is a good start, but it’s not enough. You need to promote it too.
Promoting your book takes careful planning so you get the most out of your time and effort. And that’s why having a Social Media Book Marketing Plan is an essential part of the process.
Most of you probably already know that your author websites are considered the hub of your promotional platform and everything outside of this such as, social media, forums and events work at drawing viewers and readers deeper into your web, with the purpose of landing at your website or directly buying your book.
Things to think about
Why do I want to use social media to promote your book?
What I mean: to sell books, to connect with readers, or promote a Hangout
What do I want to accomplish with your social media efforts?
What I mean: gain followers to your social media, create a niche following for your books, or build an author platform.
How much time do you have to spend each day on social media?
What I mean: You must determine how much time you’re willing to invest on social media. Will it be 15 minutes in the morning and evening, one hour total per day.
You’ll need to make a commitment to your social media every day once you get started.
Two smaller chunks are better than one larger one so you can check on comments and activity.
