Numerous authors introduce offers for their books to increase the traction and the reach of their book. However, many such authors believe that just adding a discount to their book or introducing a book deal is just enough to increase the number of sales. But it isn’t so.
Once you have added the book deal, not many of your target audience will know about the offers on your book in the first place. To ensure that your book deal doesn’t go to waste, it is crucial to take some efforts on your side to maximize the books.
Wondering how? Here are some of the top ways to add a book deal and get the maximum benefit out of it.
You can reach out to the book bloggers whose reader base consists majorly of your target readers. To start finding such bloggers in your niche, begin researching the review blogs written for a book from your niche with medium coverage. These are the bloggers who you can easily approach and will give you a decent amount of conversions.
Once you find some bloggers, write a short email requesting them to read your book, write a review for it and mention the offer on your book. Once the blogger accepts it, you can send them the book in their preferred format of soft copy. As this process can take about a month, it is best to start approaching the bloggers at least two months before the book deal and request them to post the blog when the book deal goes live.
Social Media Marketing
This is one of the basic promoting strategies to spread the word about your offer. Use the social media channels in which you have a lot of followers and send out some organic posts about the fantastic book deal. Start building up the hype for a few days before you introduce the book deal and create a significant opening offer on the first day of the book deal.
If you are ready to invest a bit in promoting the book deal, then you can make use of the social media advertising where you can target the followers who have previously engaged with your posts for better conversions.
If you send out a weekly or even a monthly newsletter to your subscribers, then make use of this opportunity to get a word in about your book deal. You can get good conversions with fewer efforts through email newsletters as you need not convince the subscribers about your book quality. These are people who liked your content and have subscribed for more of it. Therefore, an enticing offer is all it takes for them to purchase your book.
