Are You Missing Out On Opportunities To Market, Promote And Sell Your Business Building Book?

 

You're investing time, money and energy to write and publish your book. But are you investing enough time to market it, so that you can guarantee that your hard work pays off?

I'm Karen Williams, The Book Mentor, and I know that writing a book can be a great way to build your business, attract more clients, and reach more people who need your help. But even the most amazing authors end up with boxes of books sat in the garage, because they're not marketing their book well enough.

I'm sure that you don't want to miss out on KEY opportunities that could make or break your book's success. Or have a book that doesn't sell or costs you money rather than brings in a good income

Marketing your book is something that works best when you do it from the day you start to think about writing it. When you build your community at the same time, this will give you the motivation to finish and publish your book. They will become your raving fans, and may well become your clients

But don't start panicking if you're further down the line. You can still craft and develop an effective book marketing strategy, that will help you to ensure that you have the right things in place to promote your book.

And I'd like to show you how.

After running the 30 Day Book Marketing Challenge live twice, you can now download all of the material and tips. 

You'll get dozens of great strategies to sell, market and promote your book - whether you are on the starting blocks or have already finished and launched your book.

The 30 Day Book Marketing Challenge is for you if:

  • 1.

    You're writing a book, and want to know the most time effective ways to promote it.

  • 2.

    You want the confidence to tell people about it so that you no longer keep your book a secret.

  • 3.

    You may be in the starting phases or already published, and want to use your book to grow your business and attract more clients.

  • 4.

    You feel overwhelmed with all the different ways to promote your book, and want the step-by-step strategies that work.

  • 5.

    You want to ensure that your book makes a bigger difference by reaching the people who need to read it.

  • 6.

    You want to use your book as an effective marketing tool and are ready to do what it takes to get there.

  • 7.

    You love the idea of simple daily tasks that will give you immediate results from your book.

Highly recommended for authors and would-be authors

Karen’s 30 day challenge for me was a great way to get focus and clarity on how to go about marketing my book In the Jumble, which shares my tips on how to find treasures to wear from charity shops. 

In brilliant bite sized chunks I could work through and action Karen's wisdom, which really helped set up my marketing plan and activities; not just for the 30 days of the challenge, as I have been using her training and information ever since. 

I’d highly recommend it for both authors and would-be authors as the information applies whatever stage of the writing process you are at.

I've become an internationally acclaimed author!

I’ve done both the Book Writing and Book Marketing Challenge with Librotas, and as well as being a great refresher, this challenge helped me to become more focused on my marketing. 

Although I was aware of many of the strategies, I found that I became more tactical in terms of my use of PR, optimising LinkedIn and Twitter connections in establishing radio show and podcast hosts, future of work websites and various digital media. I also developed a plan that allowed me to check off the things that I’d actioned.

The net result was that I became in demand on radio shows, podcasts and media interviews in the UK, USA and Canada, Australia and New Zealand. My books are now selling around the globe and I have become an internationally acclaimed author of Career and Personal Development books. 

In turn this has helped me to gain international clients for Career Coaching work who have also networked me into like-minded people who are keen to champion my work as a thought leader in the changing word of work, especially Portfolio Careers and potentially collaborate on opportunities.

The challenge was a game-changer for our marketing campaign

Taking part in the Book Marketing Challenge with Karen Williams last year was a game-changer for my marketing campaign for "Making Sense of Learning Human Anatomy and Physiology". 

Earle Abrahamson and myself, Jane Langston, published our book in late 2016, but as authors, we hadn't explored many avenues for marketing. Each day the Book Marketing Challenge gave a new method of planning the marketing or a new resource to use. The biggest realisation from the Challenge, was that selling our book was not the primary goal; being "authors" makes one have more credibility, so public events and giving courses were our aspirational goal.

As a result of the Challenge, we launched our new publication in USA with a Thunderclap campaign, our book was on sale in Foyles in London (a personal achievement reached!), we gave keynote speeches at conferences, talks at smaller events and have delivered many short courses. Massage World Magazine invited us to have a regular feature in their publication. We were invited to a TherapyExpo to promote our book, and we were Runner Up in the Best New Product category of the Holistic Magazine Business Awards. Sales could always be better, and we can never take our foot of the book marketing accelerator pedal.

I would strongly recommend the Book Marketing Challenge to any writer or even publishers. The daily bite sized chunks of learning were achievable and didn't overwhelm, and the support from the Facebook group was just amazing, celebrating each other's success.

Get a great support team cheering you on with your book

I really enjoyed doing Karen’s 10,000 word challenge last summer. I’d planned to take the month out to write my book anyway, but being someone who is easily distracted, I knew it was going to be tough to stay on track during the month. Plus I know I enjoy recognition for my efforts, and with a book that all comes at the end once it’s published. The process of writing the book itself can be quite a solitary experience, and I was aware that this could actually sap my energy rather than fuel it. So I was delighted to be invited to join the challenge just at the very same time I was gearing up to knuckle down. 

And it was exactly what needed. The framework reminded me what I was working towards, and gave me ideas to stay motivated. But best of all I loved the camaraderie of the other writers in the Facebook group, all working on different things but all working together. There was a tiny bit of competitive spirit, but mostly it was one of collaborative about support and about cheering each other on. That was fantastic. It was just so lovely to announce I’d managed 3,000 words that day or whatever the word count was, and feel I was telling people who really cared and who understood exactly what that meant to me. 

I have stayed in touch with many of the other participants in the challenge and I know we will continue to support each other in our writing careers. We will also cheer loudly for each other when our books are published. Having the challenge made writing more fun and more productive and I’d thoroughly recommend it to anyone - beginner or experienced writer. For your first book or for your 50th.

Taking part in the 10,000 Word Summer Book Challenge has been motivating and supportive. Karen's depth of experience and her expertise shine through, while at the same time I was able to feel that no question was too simple to ask. The group were a great support for each other and I know that we will keep in touch. I have completed my book, and can't wait to tackle my next book idea. Highly recommended.

Karen's 10,000 words Book Challenge came at the perfect time for me. I so enjoyed her pre-work - the insightful questions and tips; the facebook group really helped me be accountable and the regular webinars had lots of really useful tips. The proof is in the pudding. By 31st August I had written 10,032 words and now I've published my book! Thank you Karen.

I wrote 18,000 words and then published my book!

Karen’s 10,000 word challenge was just the incentive I needed to get started on writing my book – Confident Business Writing. The advice she gave via the webinars was extremely helpful and gave vital encouragement throughout the process.

The challenge helped me to get into the habit of writing every day and create a robust plan which enabled me to write over 18,000 words in the month. I also gained valuable knowledge of the publishing process, and the book has given me enhanced credibility as a writer and proofreader.

I wish I hadn't procrastinated for so long! I'd advise all would-be authors to get on and do it! It's a hugely satisfying thing to do and to see your name on the front cover as the author is reward for all the hard work.

Subsequently, I’ve been part of Karen’s Author’s Journey and have attended a number of her events which I’ve found very valuable in the post-publication process.

I seriously recommend the book writing challenge, even if you are just thinking that you need to start writing a blog or newsletter, let alone a book. Karen’s opening question ‘what do you want to be known for?’ was the challenge of the challenge for me and started a significant period of really working out the direction for my business. 

As a result, I have more focus and vision for my business and this has definitely been a key to some successes this year. 

Karen is always on hand and is very active in the group, so you get her advice and great tips for writing every day which will really build your confidence and make the whole idea of writing a book more approachable. 

It is such great value, I would find it hard to understand why anyone wouldn’t want to do it!

Writing a book has been at the back of my mind for a while now. Karen knew this and every so often, when we either bumped into each other or were in contact, she would simply ask 'and how's that book coming along Rachel?'

I then needed to hear about the value of having a business book from other sources as well, until eventually this year's challenge came at the right time for me to get going. 

Having waited so long to get started, I was determined to meet the challenge and beyond - and did it! I set my own personal challenge of 15,000 words - 1,000 words for each day that I was working in August - and did them. Thank you Karen for continuing to nudge me along.
