What’s My favorite Social Media Platform?

My choice is Facebook ofcourse!

Since this day is about choosing a social media channel, I wanted to share with you guys an article I recently shared with my friends/fans. And it really fits well with our Daily Challenge/Assignment. 🙂

Ask yourself these questions:

  1. How effective is your marketing?
  2. Are you taking advantage of social media?
  3. What else is out there apart from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn?

There is much more!

Anatomy of an Amazon Bestseller Launch

Marnie Pehrson

Marnie Pehrson

Recently I had the pleasure of attending Dvorah Lansky’s 4th Annual Book Marketing Conference Online. This year’s theme was: “Digital Publishing Virtual Summit”.

Dvorah brought together authors, writers, publishers, speakers, coaches, VAs, entrepreneurs, and book marketing experts from all around the world & provided participants an opportunity to listen, learn and interact with the speakers.

The fourth expert speaker of the conference was Marnie Pehrson. Achieving a “Bestseller” can potentialy change everything. The status of a “Bestseller” can help with credibility as well as recognition as an expert in your niche/genre. However, it’s becoming more and more difficult to achieve. However, Marnie will share how she was able to get her book to the status of #1 Amazon Mover and Shaker as well as how she achieved a #1 Bestseller in two Amazon categories. If you use the same strategies she ‘put in play’, it could dramatically improve your chances for bestseller success.

Marnie’s topic was “The Anatomy of an Amazon Bestseller Launch for Print and Kindle Books”. If you missed her presentation, here’s a brief synopsis:

Marnie explained how “Content might be King but your list is the Key to the palace door”.

The following are just 2 of the methods she focused on during her presentation:

1 – List Building should be a priority in the Marketing Plan/Strategy. It should be one of the first things you should be working on before your book even gets published.

2 – Building your Community, Your Tribe and/or Fanbase is extremely important and should be the top of your priority list. By buidling/creating a relationship with your fanbase prior to publishing it’ll give you a foundation/platform for folks to reach out to or go to once you start launching your book.

Here are a few tips Marnie shared on how to Build Your List:

  • Send a free offer to your potential readers and/or fans & ask them to share the information and opportunity out to their list and/or friends.
  • Use the ‘power’ of Social Media by sharing the information about the free offer via your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn Pages & other social media platforms.
  • Create a Win-Win-Win Situation . . .

Dvorah brought together authors, writers, publishers, speakers, coaches, VAs, entrepreneurs, and book marketing experts from all around the world & provided participants an opportunity to listen, learn and interact with the speakers.

The third expert speaker of the conference was Sandra Beckwith. She shared how many authors realize that they should use a virtual book tour (also known as “author blog tours”) in their book marketing and promotion plan, but don’t know where or how to start. Others are intimidated or overwhelmed by the process. Sandra will help de-mystify this process and show how easy it really is.

Sandra’s topic was “No Need to Pack for a Virtual Book Tour” & she covered 4 topics. If you missed her presentation, here’s a brief synopsis:

1 – The advantages of Virtual Book Tours vs. the Traditional ‘In Person’ Book Tours:

  • Can reach a larger targeted audience.

  • No travel expenses.
  • No dressing up.
  • and much more . . .
