Marketing your eBook in today’s very crowded eBook market can be a daunting task. With so many competing titles and promo options out there, what eBook marketing tips will help to get your book in front of the most readers?

Here are 5 Easy Steps to eBook Marketing:

 

1.  Host a giveaway – whether through KDP Select, your own social media and/or an exclusive on your website. A giveaway is a fantastic way to get your book in the hands of readers. NOTE: We are big fans of this for authors that have 2 or more books.

 

2.  Send a press release – There are a ton of different news outlets and sites to upload a press release about your new book. Remember, a press release should be news worthy so it’s not just that you have a new book, it’s why to buy your new book.

 

3.  Make sure your eBook is available in multiple formats – Don’t fall in to the eBook publishing rut of making your title available on just one device or at one retailer. Try to capture a broad market. eBook conversions aren’t cost prohibitive. It’s important to have both a .ePub and .mobi format for your book.

 

4.  Host an online event – Use your website, social media contacts and online groups to host an author event where you are available. Have a few freebies to hand out during that event.

 

5.  Print a few copies of your book – Book reviews help sell books. It can be very challenging (although not impossible) to conduct a full review campaign with an eBook only. Consider printing 20 or so copies of your book at a digital printer to use for review copies. In fact, consider making the book available in print format along with your eBook edition. There are a number of POD options available that won’t break the bank.

 

eBooks are the future of books. Yes, that’s true. How we market eBooks is ever-changing and every campaign must be customized to a specific genre, author and audience. There is no “one size fits all” approach to getting the word out about your eBook. But, it is important to have a plan in place to make sure your book is easy to find.
