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.
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.
17 Tips To Market Your Book For Free!
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.
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.

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.
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!
