Marketing

Guerrilla Publishing by Derek Murphy

TRAIN THE INTERNET TO SELL BOOKS FOR YOU
Book marketing doesn’t need to be an exhausting hamster wheel of promotion and publicity.
Put your book sales on autopilot…so you can focus on writing your next bestseller.

FAST AND EFFECTIVE BOOK MARKETING
This book is a crash course on some of the more creative book marketing strategies I’ve discovered in my first year of publishing fiction. It will provide simple, actionable, measurable steps to publishing a high-quality book quickly, doing only as much marketing as is necessary to launch your book like a rockstar and keep it selling enough to support you while you write another. I only mention the things I actually use, that I know work, and ignore all the other things that don’t get results. We’ll discuss paid advertising, release strategies, pricing and pre-orders, book giveaways, how to target your audience, viral exposure and press coverage, marketing hacks, and how to reach your first $1000 on Kindle.

LAUNCH BIG EVEN IF YOU’RE STARTING SMALL
“Guerrilla” is a style of warfare intended to surprise and harass enemies. It can also mean using unconventional and usually inexpensive means for generating interest or raising concern among the public. That’s basically how I’ll use it: book marketing strategies from the trenches to help you win the publishing war. However, instead of “surprise and harass” I will focus on “surprise and delight.” First, you need to show up and get in front of the right people. Then you need to surprise and delight them. You need to be remarkable enough to be noticed. Few authors are using these strategies (yet) so it’s relatively easy to outrank your competition, get more visibility and reach new readers.
