One of the conundrums of modern publishing life is how an author can possibly sell something they can’t actually hand to a reader.
We know that it can be difficult for some authors to make the shift from selling books by doing readings and book signings, to the more ethereal activities of promoting a virtual book in the virtual sales venue of the Internet.
These are times of great change in the publishing world, and the rate of change won’t slow down any time soon. This is why we both educate and encourage our authors in their quest to sell their work.
These webinars are made available free of charge to our clients. The knowledge our authors learn can help them sell eBooks as well as paper books.
We did not immediately jump on the social media bandwagon. Chasing a new fashion simply because it’s new will waste a lot of time and energy. But neither are we the most conservative publisher in the world.
We have always researched various ways and means to assist our clients, and held marketing workshops in past years. We decided to offer these webinars on using social media, not just because it’s new, but because we believe the information can be truly useful.
As we have always seen it proven that the author is the best person to sell his or her books, we are always looking to help the author reach more readers. Social media is just another way to do that.
We would like to hear from you on what has worked in your own bookselling efforts. We’ll take the time to post some of your experiences in future blogs.
Keep in touch.
