Believe it or not, people do still read books! However, if you want to draw attention to your published work, then it is important to take it to the Internet. The Internet is a viable resource for valuable information, and many people are looking for great content to read in the form of books and e-books.
One of the most important things to do as an author marketing your book on the Internet is to find your audience. This will allow you to tell them about the book that you have available in their area of interest. This is going to happen through the process of informing your audience, whether you are selling the book directly or providing affiliate information.
One of the best resources available to any Internet business, including authors marketing their books, is to use social media marketing and forums. If you are not yet plugged into Twitter and Facebook, then you need to do so immediately to begin to gain exposure for yourself and your published book. On top of that, you do have the opportunity to become a member of specialized forums where you can interact with readers who are interested in your specific subject.
Depending on your topic, consider creating a smaller e-book form of your book that you can offer for free or at a low cost. If you do have a How To book or a book on a specialized subject, then you can provide a small e-book that will tantalize your future readers and prompt them to buy your physical book. For instance, if you have a book on beauty, then consider creating a small e-book on “The 5 Best Skin Care Tips”. This is just one example of a way that you can easily market your book through the form of a free e-book available to readers interested in your subject.
It is a fact that people will be attracted to anything that is free, and that is precisely the way that you can give them a sample of the writing in your book and also establish your credibility as a valuable author. This is a basic and necessary component to effectively marketing your book on the Internet.
