Promoting your Book Online

Day 18 of the #FridayWritesBlogChallenge

Today’s Topic: List a few free sites that help you promote your book? 

In today’s blog post, I  will jump right to the point. We are talking about really good websites to promote your book. 

I’ll give you three really good options all of which require some buy-in from you and the other parties participating in the promotion.

The first website I will recommend is Reedsy. This website has hundreds of email newsletters that you can promote your book with. Some are paid and some are not.

The second wealth website I will recommend is Book Funnel. Not only does this website have tools for publishing your book, sharing it with arc readers, and sharing special signature copies with fans. It also has a promotional tool where you can collaborate with other authors and promote books jointly. I recommend having a mailing list of at least 1000 subscribers before you get started because many of the promotions require you to have a small audience before you start promoting.

And last but most problematic is Facebook. Although the platform has been restructured to prevent organic growth, Facebook shines when it comes to active groups. Groups are a good way to get into a space with other writers and readers to participate in a writing community. Please don’t enter a group to promote your book, join a group to learn and listen, so you become a better writer and better at understanding the bigger picture of the genre you write. 

With that said, start blogging every day and telling the story of your creative work. There are dozens of people who need inspiration and the riveting story of a passionate go-getter will inspire them as well as keep you on the path to your goals.

Stay connected.
