Reposted From: Mili Fay: An Artist's Struggle To Success
Now that my book is published and looking perfect, my greatest struggle is getting it in front of my audience, a.k.a. MARKETING.
I'm all over the Internet, but though I connect with other authors and artists, I'm not reaching the people who want to buy my book.
How do I know who these people are?
I truly believe that everyone would love my book, but not everyone NEEDS my book. To find your audience you need to know who falls in the second category. By going to markets and fairs I have discovered that people who purchase my book have young children in their lives; they are parents, grandparents, teachers...
So, I should be targeting mommy blogs, baby and children's stores, schools... But how do I reach people without coming across as a self-serving creep?
I have no idea.
Thankfully, I have just discovered something called a Book Marketing Challenge. It begins this Monday, May 5th, so if you want to get the FREE Silver Pass and check it out: http://buildabusinesswithyourbook.com/access/aff/go/mili_fay
I have just signed up for Gold Membership so what you see above is my affiliate link.
I honestly hope it helps me out, because doing everything on my own is a tad overwhelming. ;-)
I'll blog about my experience, so if you have any questions let me know.
