How to sell your book

We are in the future, and the world has changed...but, the old timer who sold snake oil is still King.



When I was younger I became a salesperson. The first thing I learned; “Sell yourself.”

Selling is all Playhouse 90. To sell a product, you must first gain the love of your audience. You are an actor on stage. Give a good performance and they will toss coins onto the stage. Give a bad performance, and you will be dodging tomatoes.

First sell yourself: Here is a free tool you can use: WWW.Magisto.com

Check it out. They will show you what you need to make a hit movie. They will do all the work, and it’s free. Sell yourself, and show your book in a great short movie. Post it on you tube.



Have fun

Domenic

That is great Shelagh...I love it. I look at everything selling as a fad. Hot for a time, then it dies out.

Companies with good marketing teams keep changing their adds, and often their market because they know the miles they get on an add will only go so far. Often they go from one age group, or type of people to another. In the auto industry, GM is marketing what used to be old peoples cars to a younger age group…Cad, and Olds.



Let me make a suggestion…That book would be good for women who are into Yoga. They are looking for sayings that make them feel in touch with others…feeling of loving strangers etc.



You might want to sell this as the Bible for Yoga? or something like that…send emails to Yoga places, and let them make a %’s.



There are companies selling mailing list of emails, 10,000 for $100(USD) of any type people you want to reach, and other companies that will send them out for $35 a month.



The email thing only starts to work after a few months if sent to the same people.



My shirt printing company will be up, and running within about a month. I’d love to put the cover of your book on T-shirts…maybe we can strike a deal?
