Building a solid online reputation can be a great way to market your book. This can be done by asking others to help you with your marketing. This could be friends, family, your launch party, or even online influencers. You probably have many people in your circle that would like to see you succeed. They might not know how they can help you though! That’s why you need to make it easy for others to help you.
You have a book you want to write but you find yourself struggling to finish it. You are not alone. It takes a lot of time and effort to write a book – especially in the Indie and self-publishing world. You don’t just have a book to write. You have a book to write, edit, publish, and promote. It’s a lot of work and it can seem overwhelming.
Finding an accountability system that works for you can make a huge difference in the timeline of completing your book. Accountability helps you stay on track and comes in many different forms.
Today I want to tell you about my friend Lila. She wrote a book for kids that was really beautiful. It had gorgeous illustrations from a wildly talented professional artist, she had a story that engaged children and shared a deeply personal – but somehow still universal – message. This book had everything going for it.
When I met Lila, she was trying to figure out how to market this book. As always, we sat down and talked about her ideal reader. It’s important to know your ideal audience when marketing your book and sometimes, your ideal audience isn’t the same as your ideal reader.
