Authors can have a variety of extracurricular activities. Depending on how involved the author wants to be with his/her book, radio shows, speaking tours and other activities can create extra income. Each of these activities could have a sponsor associated with it. For example, if you have an online radio show at BlogTalkRadio.com, you could have sponsors advertise on your show.
Doing this is a great compliment to book sales and can provide a good source of income. A good sponsor will not only pay you, but also help you sell books, so the partnership might be beneficial in more ways than one.
To find a sponsor, I would recommend going to the website GetYourSponsor.com, simply fill out a profile and other companies or entities wanting to provide a sponsorship might see a match.
If you want to learn how to sell books online, just get my new paperback Social Networking for Authors, it will be the best $18 you ever spent. I have a couple sponsors that even asked to sell my books for me! It doesn’t get any better than that.
