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!

About Dan Grijzenhout: For close to thirty years, I've been a professional business and information systems consulting professional working to executive levels for both private and public sector organizations globally, a number of which were "Fortune" level enterprises. I've built from scratch, operated and sold an online global payment services company that moves millions of dollars on behalf of its 100,000 plus account holders annually; I've been interviewed on the show "World Business Review" by former head of NATO and Secretary of State, General Alexander Haig, for my work in advanced digital and online telecommunications services and nation-wide online and card based "Loyalty" programs; and I now work at writing books and building training programs to share my years of experience with others interested in online entrepreneurship.
Social Media Marketing, Content Creation and Authorship: During the past few years, I have focused nearly all my time and energy on designing and building online marketing systems and social media marketing platforms. In fact, I recently completed a two year project as the project manager and chief architect to build a marketing system used by several major airlines, travel agencies and Fortune Level manufacturing corporations. I've now written, self-published and self-marketed five books being sold through Amazon-Kindle Create Space, and Ingram Spark. I've written and published over 40 social media related training/learning articles, videos and knowledge enhancing video podcasts available on my website, iTunes and YouTube.
