Today I start my month-long virtual book tour with a stop at Book Marketing Buzz: Book Marketing & Promotion Tips, where authors write guest blogs about the marketing strategies for their books. My post begins:
“My main book marketing plan is to become the queen of internet marketers for the promotion of my book MRS. LIEUTENANT: A SHARON GOLD NOVEL.
“When friends ask if I’m going to have book signings, or they suggest I contact the local library, I politely thank them. Then I explain that I can reach more people in one hour of online marketing than I can reach in hours and hours of book signings. And I add that I have to allocate my limited resources of time to maximize my return on investment. (That’s what having an M.B.A. from Wharton will help you realize.)”
Later in the guest blog I list some books that I have found particularly helpful:
Sell Your Book on Amazon by Brent Sampson
Red Hot Internet Publicity by Penny C. Sansevieri
Plug Your Book by Steve Weber
1001 Ways to Market Your Books (sixth edition) by John Kremer
