30 Book Marketing Tips For Indie Authors
“As indie authors, we’re always trying to find free, low-cost, or at least cost effective ways to market our books. In this post, I’ve pulled together 30 (plus) book marketing tips for indie authors, to help you put a workable, affordable book marketing plan together, today.
Make Sure Your Online Profiles Sell Your Books
Look at your profile pages on social media and other online forums. Do they mention your latest book? Link to your best web page, site or blog? Do you use a consistent profile pic and user name across all platforms?
Check Your Book Descriptions
Could they be polished up? Are you using all the right keywords? Do you now have editorial reviews, awards or accolades you could add to your descriptions?
See if Your Books Need Updating
Each book is a marketing tool for your other books. Make sure your books are doing their job. Non-fiction books might need a thorough update after a year or two to check for outdated information and broken links. If you write fiction you might at least want to update your “Other books by the author” section if you’ve published something new. All ten of my books got a thorough update this year.”
