Very few excellent writers are also experts in graphic design, editing, printing, garnering excellent reviews, acquiring global distribution channels, web site landing page design, social networking, marketing to retail booksellers, creating high quality video book trailers and all facets of sales. Even if you were an expert in all of those fields, would you have the time to accomplish all of those tasks, as well as stock and restock retail stores? In today's highly competitive and rapidly changing retail book market, even trade publishers cannot do everything. So, unless you are a famous author, you will need to chip in with some time and effort to make your book a smashing retail success.
Implement your own successful book marketing campaign with an appropriate web site landing page, with blogs, free or low-cost video trailers, compelling interviews, published articles, media coverage, e-book sales tricks, public posting and effective social networking. Learn how to market effectively without spending much money. The harder your effort, the larger your royalties/earnings!
