Sell More Books with These Tips

How to Sell More Books by Frances CaballoHow to Sell More Books Using Twitter

Let’s talk about Twitter and book promotion.

If you read a lot of blogs, you’ve heard bloggers lament that too many authors use Twitter to sell their books.

Tweets that say: “Buy my book!” “Visit my blog!” “Visit my Website!” are plentiful on Twitter.

It’s okay to tweet about your book but consider doing it differently.

  1. Promote the books from other authors. Then in turn will promote yours.
  2. Use hashtags to find readers, book bloggers, and book reviewers. Follow them and some will follow you back and might even buy your book or offer to review it.
  3. Interact with other writers in your genre. Get to know them. Help them and they will in turn help you.
  4. Create a series of tweetable quotes from your book. Select quotes, find a free image, and then use Canva to create a quote image using a line of dialogue or narrative from your book. Or, you can simply send a text tweet quoting your book. I prefer the idea of creating an image because your tweeps’ eyes will naturally be attracted to the image more than the text.
  5. Create a landing page for each book. Then when you tweet about a book, your followers will first come to the landing page where they can learn more about your novel or nonfiction book, read some reviews, and find a link to Amazon.
  6. Tweet great content. Once you become known for your content, you’ll then become known for your books.
  7. Review your Twitter bio. Do you use it to promote your book?
