Many new writers wonder how to market their books. Most of my income comes from book signings and hosting a booth at a local event. Websites are good for sharing information, but events, either an event you create or one you attend, draw people to you and your products (books).
“Weebly.com” provides a website where you can sell your books. This is an added feature you can use for marketing. I also ordered a square from “Square.com.” Now, I can take orders by credit card when I carry my square unit with my cell phone.
Call Barnes and Noble and ask if you can hold a book signing at their store. Plan at least two months ahead and work with the store manager. They order the books and pay for them. You sign and sell them. They get the purchase price and you get the royalties and publicity. It’s a fair exchange if you ask me.
Book signings, a booth at a local event, a website with a book selling feature added, a square unit, weekly.com…are a few ideas for marketing your books/business. If you want money coming in, you have to be outgoing. Get busy and get paid!
