Regardless of what anyone tells you, the best person to sell your book is you – it always has been. Even if you have services and distribution networks to get in front of people, it doesn’t guarantee you anything. All it does is get you in front of people, it’s then up to them to see if your ‘performance’ is worth the cost. Much like being up on stage, you have to ensure that not only the performance is great but you have a full theatre ready to take part in the show.

The reality of marketing services is a bit of a grey area when it comes to book publishing. As there are different types of publishing options it normally means you do it yourself (self-publishing), get assistance (hybrid publishing), or have an element of marketing completed for you (traditional publishing). 

What really matters, and where a lot of new authors become unstuck, is the quality and duration of the marketing that different publishing businesses offer.

New authors, in particular, have a common misconception that if their books get into book shops that it will sell well, or if it becomes an Amazon bestseller that it’s considered a ‘success’. The truth is far from that perception. What really matters is the cost of their publishing journey – how much return or royalties they receive back and are they continuing this momentum or is it short-lived?

Having a marketing plan mapped out for your book journey is not only crucial but essential.  Marketing your book shouldn’t just happen after your book is printed and ready to sell. It should happen the moment you start putting pen to paper – but why? Successful books have 3 things in common, a great manuscript, a proactive author, and most importantly, the right connections.

Connection = Opportunity

Building connections and sharing your journey should begin at the very start of your publishing journey. Even though you don’t have a fully completed book (or maybe not even a few lines) starting to bring people into that journey is a powerful way to ensure you launch your book strong with a waiting audience. A publishing company should have a plan where a mentor or coach can step you through this process. The marketing service should also be able to map out how to launch your book, what resources to use, and ultimately, have a clear guide on how to not only made a return on investment but grow domestically and internationally. Finally, guides and strategies after your book has launched should be clear. How to use Amazon, Goodreads, and other digital opportunities should be outlined. The process in approaching libraries, specialty shops, becoming a keynote speaker, operating book signings, and much more should be accessible.

The problem is that most of this isn’t provided and if it is, you may only be provided marketing support or services after the book is printed. In some cases, only for a few months or even a few weeks in some cases.  This is where a lot of authors become unstuck, because when this type of marketing stops, normally do the sales.

So why wait?
