e-Books are a great way to get your foot in the door if you’re just starting to try to get work published as a writer, or to promote yourself as an authority within your blogging niche (if you’re a blogger). However for your eBook to catch on it has to be marketed well. Once you’ve written and published your eBook use these techniques to get the word out about it.
Email a free copy of your e-Book to all subscribers
Whether you’re planning on offering your eBook for free to readers or on charging a fee, you should send out either a sample from your eBook or a full copy to everyone on your email list. This makes it easy for others to pass it on to people on their own email list and allows you to give subscribers an exclusive sneak peek of the book before you officially put it out on your website.
Include a link to your e book on all social media sites
Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon… you should use all of these, and any other social media you are a part of, to promote your newly published eBook. Social media has the power to reach millions of people with little effort on your part past the initial marketing, making it an absolute addition to your marketing campaign.
Make your eBook an audiobook
Turning your eBook into an audiobook gives you yet another advantage to appeal to an even bigger audience because it allows you to submit the audiobook to places like Audible.com and iTunes. Having multiple downloadable formats of your eBook will only serve to benefit you and your potential readers.
Send out a press release when your e-Book is launched
Press releases are great ways to drum up attention for you eBook because you are able to use them in a multitude of ways. Email out the press release to your email list, post a copy on your blog or website, and submit a copy to relevant industry blogs and websites that are willing to post it for you to ensure you reach a large number of people within your target audience.
Guest post for other bloggers to promote your ebook
Guest posting will likely always be one of the best marketing tools you can use when it comes to anything being published online. This doesn’t mean you should write a purely promotional article regarding your eBook as your guest post because other bloggers typically reject those types of posts, however you should link to your eBook within the post so that the readers can easily click over to it.
