Rob Eagar's Monday Morning Marketing Tip
is written to help authors, publishers, and organizations
spread their message like wildfire.
This week's focus:
I'm surprised by how many authors are frustrated by all of the work it takes to market their books. I think to myself, "What did you expect? If you didn't write a book with the desire to promote it, then why write it in the first place?" Books don't sell themselves.
Did you have kids without considering all of the hard work it would require to raise them? Of course not. Yet, books are no different. They need constant attention, especially when they're newly born. Fortunately, instead of having to change diapers, endure doctor's visits, and feed in the middle of the night, all your book needs is some consistent love via social media, free resources, radio interviews, public speaking, blog posts, etc. If marketing frustrates you, try looking at your book like having a baby without the birth pains. That should make you feel better already.
