Use the New Book Awards to Promote Yourself & Boost Sales
Many of the questions we get involve authors wanting to improve their marketing and getting known.
A great ask is "How can I use this opportunity to promote my book? How do I get more reviews?"
"Now that I am in the awards can I get someone to do the marketing for me?"
The challenge is for you to have a plan and feel comfortable in getting the word out about your book and using the New Book Awards as a vehicle. There are in fact, many ways to promote on and offline these days but because you really want to standout, there’s rarely a one-size-fits-all answer that fits all books.
There are countless things you can try out. In fact, Reedsy has more than 50 marketing ideas in this awesome post. But if you're looking for just a few simple ways to get your sales rolling in, here are a few relatively easy to do very budget-friendly ways to promote your book that we will go over!
Keep in mind it is essential now that you are in the awards that you complete the author entry follow-up form that determines to the judge what steps you are taking to promote your book - this is an essential requirement for winning and finally displaying the prestigious New Book Award WINNER cover sticker!
