First piece of advice I can give you on marketing is to write a good book. People will buy quality reading material and tell their friends about it.
Second, learn how to sell it online. The Naked Truth About Self-Publishing has excellent information on that. Read and follow its advice.
Third, if you blog and use Twitter, you need Triberr. This program links your blog into a "tribe" of likeminded bloggers who then share your blog's title on Twitter and/or other social media. It brings readers to your blog in large numbers. You share the posts of your tribemates with your followers. It's a great give-and-take scenario. Try the book on the right.
The Marketing for Romance Writers group is focused on learning marketing and publicity. We discuss ways to advance our careers, brainstorm new ventures and ideas, get feedback, and find others interested in mutual promotion. Our motto is "Seek, teach, share, learn, succeed." We welcome marketing-related material that asks a question, offers a promo or idea, or is a request for help, advice, or opinions. We offer opportunities to promote and join others in promotional efforts. As fellow members of the literary community, we are your support group and co-workers.
Need to buy pens, pins, or other goodies? Found a great place to do that? Please share. We are open to all fiction and non-fiction genres without limit. Our writing per se is not discussed; we focus on creating an image and using it effectively. Pitch sessions and calls for submission are welcome.
Come join the team!
