Marketing Tools

As an author, how do YOU market your books? I'm not talking about Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. Social media is a MUST in marketing, but there are other things you can (and should!) do.

I make bookmarks to put in any books I sell myself (not online), and I also donate small stacks of them to local libraries. I use 48 Hour Print (it's cheap!) and though it costs me up front, it's worth it in book sales, so don't be afraid to give them out!

I also create marketing cards which I also put in books or mail to businesses (daycare centers, schools, etc).

Masks? Yep, we need to wear them due to Covid, so why not market yourself? Find someone (or a business online) who can design your mask!

There are so many ways to market outside of social media. What are you waiting for?
