5 ways to promote your book online

Become a guest Author

Being a guest author is a great way to gain exposure, expand your reach, and promote your writing all at the same time. Search websites/blogs that have “Write for us” or Guest Author pages.

Offer Reader Incentives

Offer a free e-book or story in exchange for readers signing up to your newsletter. Once you have them on your mailing list then use your newsletter to educate, entertain, share updates, and to offer your books and products.

Broadcast your success

If you have 5-star reviews, then be sure to let people know. Write a blurb about your 5-star review on your social media pages and pin it to the top. Don’t think of it as boasting. Great reviews are something to celebrate. People still pay attention to reviews, so if you have some great ones, then share it to help build creditability and awareness of your work.

Write for sites like Medium, Voice Media, or Ghost

These sites are a great way to gain fans and more exposure to your work. They are pretty simple to navigate. In a nutshell, you write articles and short stories, and you get paid when people read them. Some have a monthly subscription fee, so visit their website for the current price structure.

Use cost effective book promotions

They are tons of cost-conscious book promotion sites that you can use to broaden your reader reach.

Just keep going. You dedication can and will pay off.Click this text to start editing. This block is a basic combination of a title and a paragraph.
