We are doing a marketing episode today. Since we are still bumping up against people who say thing don't market because the book isn't published, we decided to address the question: "Why do you need to market your book before it's published?"
So, I thought it was high time I did another Monday Marketing post! Now, no matter how much I say it, I'm still seeing new writers who claim they "don't need to market" or that they will "Market after publishing." But it's important so here are 7 reasons why you need to market your book before it's published.
It's Monday Marketing time, people! Today I thought I'd talk (more) about social media. Last year, I did a series on Social Media but I think discussing it specifically for Marketing is important. Not all social media is the same. Ones such as Twitter and Snapchat are fast-paced social media platforms. LinkedIn is more business-oriented, designed more for making professional connections.

There are many good reasons to go the traditionally published route, unfortunately, this is not one of them. Gone are the …
I'm back with another Monday Marketing post, and today's topic is all about the Call To Action tactic and why we need to think more carefully about how to use them.
Welcome back to another Monday Marketing post! Today I've been thinking about branding. Now as writers, we don't always remember to think about our branding but it is important. I've discussed being consistent in your branding, but what about the idea of rebranding?
It's Monday Marketing Time. For those who don't know, I've been running blog posts on Mondays discussing different methods for writers to market their books. Marketing is one of those areas many writers struggle with so I'm here to offer marketing ideas and suggestion. Today's Monday Marketing post is all about sharing a little something with your readers to help create connections and build that all-important fan base.
It's Monday so that means it's time for another Monday Marketing post. Today I want to discuss how not to talk to people. In a marketing sense, there are definitely some right and wrong ways to deal with people. A quick thanks to all those who sent supportive messages, following my last blog post. I am feeling better and I'm sorry I had to miss Friday's post.
