Book Publishing Chapter 2 - How to Promote a Self-Published Book

You have just self-published your first book and/or E-Book and you are wondering how to promote it and make money from it. Self-publishing the first time can be a daunting task, but promoting your book to potential buyers is both a larger and more long-term effort.  Many of us shy away from trying to sell things to others when we are in one-on-one and/or physical situations.  It just is not the comfort zone for many.  I have as a result, seen many books offered for sale on Amazon-Kindle that show no sales yet they are obviously high-quality achievements; worthy of purchasing and reading.

Well for those of you wanting to obtain sales for your book but feeling the queasiness at your core in trying to market it, know that there are many ways to market your book to reach 1,000's if not 10's of thousands of people globally without having to get in front of someone to directly sell something to you.

This course will tell you how to do that.  But do remember as you look for ways to sell outside of personal physical contact, the closure rate when you are one-on-one with a person has a much higher sale closure rate. So get out there physically as well if you are up to it.  It will help your sales.

In any event, this class will teach you many ways to get your book in front of people - taking this course is a very good use of your time if you have a book to sell.

See you on the inside!

Best wishes,
