HOW TO #MARKET YOUR #ROMANCE #BOOK FOR #FREE ~ #Authors #indie

 


To experience and enjoy a racing pulse, an elevated heart rate, laughter & a scorching skin, read every page of my books.




Hello Romance Lovers, 


Quite often, I receive private messages from aspiring authors asking how to market their newly published books.

 

There are several ways you can market your books for free

In the last 10 years of writing and publishing 34 romance books, I have learnt a few ways to advertise my books without a promo budget. I want to share the tips with you.

 

Take care of the basics such as:

Book Pricing:

I'm hoping the pricing of your book is affordable and competitive. For about 8 years, I priced my books at 99p! Now, I sell all my books at £1.99. I prefer a wider distribution for my books because I want more readers to be able to afford my books.


Book Cover:

Your book cover has to be attractive, so you can pull in new readers! The book cover is the first thing readers see.

Blurb:
Make sure your blurb is precise, teases the readers and you don't fluff about.

Download my new release, HOT Chase from iBooks, Nook, Kobo, Scribd, Okada Books, Smashwords and in Paperback!!!









17 Tips To Market Your Book For Free!


1. Join as many Facebook book groups as you can.
Join groups for your genre. Be active in the core groups if you can. There are thousands of readers in search of books to read.

 

2. Come up with a punchy tag line for your book. 

It's not enough for you to just put your book title and sales link. Tell the reader what they stand to gain from reading your book. Offer something in return for the sale you expect. 

 

Naked Attraction


3. Post your promo.

Post your books on Facebook groups regularly and on Instagram, Twitter and all your social media sites. 

Oh, you're not on social media? Then, open an account today! Online is the platform to sell books without spending a dime!

Sell on Amazon, iBooks, Kobo, Nook, Smashwords & Okada Books for free.




HOT Chase ~ A BWWM Sweet & Steamy Romance


Author: Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku

Release Date: 10th January 2021

Genre: Contemporary/Interracial/African-American/BWWM

Please add HOT Chase on Goodreads



4. Interact with anyone who likes your post on social media. 
Engaging with readers is vital.


5. Share posts from other authors on your page. 
Apart from the fact it's a kind thing to do, you get noticed and sometimes, the authors return the favour and that puts your book in front of fresh audience.

6. Contact book bloggers.
Many book bloggers are willing to post your books for free. Some even offer to read and review your book. Just reach out.
Send them your promo post and ask them to share it.

7. Organize release parties for your books on Facebook. 
Invite your friends to celebrate with you and invite other authors to takeover your page for a short duration. That way, you cross promote each other. 




8. Join groups where authors are invited to do a takeover. This is an exciting opportunity to meet and interact with new readers and authors. It works for me.



9. Write to me via email and I will showcase your romance new release on this blog for free! I love to promote authors.


Choose Me



10. Share your posts regularly.

Building a brand, gaining loyal readers take hard work, consistency and patience. Keep at it even when you don’t see sales. Don’t be frustrated. If your books keep popping up everywhere, a reader will notice and give you a chance. If not, they will move on to another author whose books are always in front of their eyes.

 

Irresistible Passion


11. I have 7 Facebook Groups.

Ask to JOIN my groups and promote your books. If you are lazy about marketing, then you are not ready to have readers open the pages of the book you worked hard to write. Believe me, I wish I did not have to market, but I do! I don’t have a budget, so I constantly find ways to promote my books without spending a dime!


Longing for You


12. Tweet your books daily!


GET Undressed



13. Post on Instagram as often as possible.


LUST

 

14. Start a Blog!

Post about whatever interests you and share your posts on Social Media. Use your blog platform to promote and share your books. Share snippets from your books to tease and gain new readers.

 

Tempted by the Princess


15. Start a Facebook Group on the genre you write.

For example, I created these groups in the genre I write:

  • Contemporary Romance Novels & Novella
  • Interracial & Multicultural Romance
  • Historical & Paranormal Romance
  • Flirty & Feisty Romance Novels
  • Romance-aholics
  • Romance for $2.99/£2.99 or less
  • Bloggers Supporting Bloggers

 

Enticed Forever


16. Add your book links and social media links to your book for readers to follow you.

 

HOOKED by one Curvy Girl



17. You can start a Newsletter to engage with your loyal readers.



Husband to Rent
