Successful Selling Tips for Introverted Authors by Kim Staflund. A Book Review By Claude Whitacre

[ 1 ] May 31, 2017 |

The title caught my eye. And I wondered (because I’m an author too) what sales tips there would be for the chronically introverted.

Well, it didn’t take long to see that the techniques for selling your book are perfect for the introverted. They involve marketing techniques, that will greatly improve your book sales. None of these techniques involve hard selling in any way. And for people who love to write, but hate to sell, these techniques are a perfect match.

The book talks about the marketing/sales methods that are absolutely proven to increase book sales. Such as:
Using keywords in you title, book description, and blog posts.
Using benefits to describe what the reader gets…rather than just features that cover what you learn.
Multiple samples of “elevator pitches” for your book that can act as summaries. The author covers both fiction and non-fiction examples.
Creating a web page to sell your book.
How to use blog posts (they are free) to market your book. A technique I’ve used for as few years that really pays off.
How you can use videos, even if you are too shy to be in front of a camera…to market your book. I use this method personally and get great results with it.
The best use of book reviews I’ve read in awhile.
The best uses of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Youtube, and Pay-Per-Click advertising.
You also get a pretty thorough chapter on using publicity to market your book.

I wish I had read this book a few years ago. It would have saved me money and increased book sales.

Plenty of samples for both non-fiction and fiction authors.

    Claude, just left you an Amazon for Selling Local Advertising. Did my best to disparage the short-sighted reviewers who erroneously claim that there were too many mentions of additional resources crammed into your excellent book. Thanks for helping a rep JUST getting started….Larry Sullivan
