Pam Perry PR: 3 Tips for Authors



Read the new blog: www.pamperrypr.com/blog


  1. Learn about marketing and publicity. 
  2. Build a platform. No book will sell without telling others about it - over and over again. Not just once. Word of mouth is the best form of advertising. Creating "buzz" requires a strategy and a strong platform. 
  3.  Once the book is published a lot of authors believe it will sell by itself. Many Christians sway the other way and are too humble to tell anyone about their book. They believe if they put it up on Amazon or tell a few of their "yes buddies" it will take off. NOT!  
 Just like any product that is sold for cold cash, it must be marketed and promoted in order to sell. It takes money to make money.

How to create an eBook Cover

Author Pam Perry
The "magic marketing" formula today is to create an "ebook" and give it away - in exchange for a "good" email address.  

And the one with the most email addresses wins.  :)

It's done all day, every day on the internet. Smart and savvy internet marketers do this.

They know how to make the "ebook" look so inviting.

Really, it's just a pdf but hey, we imagine it as a "real" book.

So, how do they create those cute "ebook" covers?

Simple.

They use a software and create them in minutes.
 Anyone can do. It's fast and simple.

One of the best I've found
is from Nancast. Love 'em.

(I recommend them and I am an affiliate too -
just being honest. But I don't recommend anything
I don't absolutely love!)

What is Branding? [Podcast]

What is your brand promise? Who do people say YOU ARE? Are they confused? Are you?

 Branding is a way you can:

• Affirm your value to the market place

• Highlight your unique selling point

• Establish your reputation and create a loyal “fan” base

• Attract your core target audience and garner customers

It takes a long time build up substantial “brand equity” – don’t destroy it because you have a new idea. Stick with your logo, tagline and other elements you have set in place. You want to get to the point with your brand so that it is embedded into the subconscious minds of your audience.
