Marketing Your Books

Your Book Monopoly Review Part Two

book monolopy logoYour Book Monopoly Review Part Two focuses on placing your book in libraries. Truthfully, as a Kindle publisher I have not given much thought to this high leverage source of revenue.  Of course the thought crossed my mind a time or two, but then the reality of actually making it happen immediately erased the thought.

Until now! The numbers alone will make your head spin with possibilities. Of course like anything worth doing it will take a lot of work on your part, but the end results could be staggering. Satisfy the seven-qualifiers listed and you are ready to move on. It will take work to get your book into libraries, but the end result will be worth it.

You will learn who has the budget to purchase your books and the months in which they make their purchases. Once again, if you have not purchased your ISBN number(s) and published your book in the correct step-by-step method presented, you will be hurting your changes of achieving the genius of this book marketing program. There are no shortcuts here.

The next part of this section is pure golden and explained in detail. So read carefully, make a system check list of your own and follow the links for additional information and resources. The first tip and information following it are totally unique and not something you would normally think about. It just goes to show you how one thing can follow another, not to mention how much work Rachel has put into bringing you added value.

The infamous “review” issue comes up again, so I strongly suggest you pick up a program on how to generate quality reviews for your book.  Rachel’s program Rolling In Reviews is a great place to start.

FYI: buying reviews from Fiverr.Com is not a quality review and will been seen-through for what it is in a heartbeat. Rachel also gives a new resource for seeing how your book is doing once you have followed the information in this section.

Book Marketing 102

Now for the hard work, actively making your book salable in order to get noticed by this high leverage buyer. One of the tips is about nonfiction books. If that includes your book, remember the rule of thumb is to provide solutions for your reader’s problems. For libraries that translates into perceived need by their patrons.

You will also receive eight (8) very important links to must-have listings. Never overlook a download link in this course. Rachel and her team have done the hard work for you by adding examples and personal templates to use, along with detailed instructions on how to use them.

She ends this section with a few more tips on getting your book noticed and branding yourself as “the expert” through marketing.

Your Book Monopoly Review Part One

book monolopy logoYour Book Monopoly Review Part One focuses on a physical book.  Most of us have published at least one Kindle book, or want to in the near future. From personal experience, I can tell you that is a perfect start, but it will not make you rich any time soon. If you are like me and have been on the fence about turning your Kindle eBook into a physical book, now is the time! There will be no excuses after going through this course.

Rachel gives you a couple of resources for doing just that and one of them includes a resource for the must-have ISBN number(s) you will need – at a discounted price.

She points out the importance of using each of the resources gives you and the pros and cons of each. One I am familiar with and the other one I have not used. I can’t wait to learn more about it later in the course. It will be exciting to expand my horizons in the publishing world. FYI: my hard dive is full of publishing courses and not one of them have mentioned the second resource much less what it can do for you (covered later in the course.)

Remember, you are not simply publishing a book to Kindle in this course. You will have to think big! You are creating a book monopoly and that means being seen everywhere by as many people and buyers as possible.

There is a definite publishing order in which to set up your book monopoly. Put one step of the process out of order and you will most likely lose the game (sorry, I couldn’t resist.) To be on the safe side, I made a cheat sheet of the publishing system, so I could easily repeat it with zero stress later on.

One resource has an application review process. Depending on the new account volume at the time of your submission, they will notify you via email in two or more business days regarding the status of your application. Rachel also points out that there is a $37.50 setup fee for this resource.

UPDATE: I submitted my application on Saturday, May 25th. and received my acceptance and membership information on Tuesday, May 28th. Not bad for a holiday weekend.

Think ahead and be sure to follow the resource links provided to sign up for each resource – well in advance of your book publication date. Waiting until the last minute could throw your schedule off by a week or more.

Another unique twist to this program is that Rachel ends this section with a list of what you will have accomplished.

Now it is on to section two. Wow, this monopoly game is moving fast.

Your Book Monopoly
A Product by by Rachel Rofe

If you are planning on publishing a book in 2014 (or already have a published book(s), this is the program for you. Imagine, creating five (5) times the income from one of your books.

I will be posting my section-by-section Your Book Monopoly Review each day for the next five days.

This is a quick and easy to read five (5) part program. Truthfully, I was amazed just how easy it was to follow and understand. I received my review copy on a Thursday and completed the information by Monday.  I could not wait to move onto the next section each day, but made myself stop after each section so I could get my already scheduled daily work completed.

Here is my testimonial for the program;

 

Rachel,

Never in a million years did I ever think I could have a book monopoly. Now I know that is not only possible, it is something I can actually do after finishing this course. Of course, as always you have once again over-delivered in quality and content…

Right off I found a resource I knew nothing about, which is amazing since I have no less than 30+ Kindle and publishing courses on my hard drive.

 

I appreciated the simple five-step approach with concentrated information, the variety of resources and all the downloadable templates. And who besides you would have ever thought of the purple cow test to save time and frustration?

What a wonderful way to start my day. The content was a joy to read and I looked forward to working through each section.
