Many writers publish their books without realizing how important it is to have a marketing plan ready before the book is released into the wild. Avoid this mistake with your next book by planning a launch campaign that gets big results.
In this content-rich presentation, you will learn how to:
- Optimize your book sales on Amazon.
- Enlist a group of beta readers to generate feedback, buzz and reviews.
- Assemble your launch team and set them up for success.
- Make your print and ebook editions available for pre-order weeks before your book is officially released.
- Follow essential steps to launch your book with as much fanfare as possible.
- Invest in Amazon ads to get more exposure, and then earn back your investment over and over again.
- Keep the momentum going after the launch is over.
When you invest time preparing for a successful book launch, you give your book a great head start. This enlightening presentation is loaded with real-world examples and proven DIY strategies to help you sell more books!
NO AFTERNOON WORKSHOP
Instead, everyone attending the morning session is welcome to bring a bag lunch and stay for a casual gathering with discussions around the tables. We’ll provide some conversation starters at each table in case they’re helpful, but you probably won’t need them. This is a chance to hang out informally with your BAIPA friends and colleagues. Discuss the morning presentation, what you’re each working on, or pick the brains of your community around some problem or challenge or opportunity. There will be no formal afternoon workshop, but there will be a reason to stick around for a bit, relax and socialize.
