Marketing Subject:  Grass-Root’s Marketing Strategies

describe the imageI have written a book entitled, “Notes on Practical-Grass-Root’s Marketing Strategies for Self-published Authors.” I wrote this book as a result of my contributions to the Infinity Publishing’s Author’s Marketing Blog. I began writing my notes in this blog on Monday, November 29, 2011, and ended on Tuesday, February 01, 2011. I contributed to the blog in hopes of getting some ideas for marketing my own books.

This book deals with a variety of approaches to marketing your self-published book. It includes issues from making the most of your cover design, to marketing by using Twitter as a social networking method. I have written 20+ books beginning in 1991. When I began writing I had no idea about how to market my books.

I received the marketing packages from Infinity, but didn’t take marketing seriously. Somehow I thought that something miraculous would happen to help me sell my books.

I have written 36 notes of approximately 600 words. The notes are by no means intended to be the last word. I wanted to stimulate the thinking of authors and introduce them to the realm of possibilities.

One of the main issues in choosing a marketing strategy is to pick what works best for you. Some approaches won’t work well for certain people. As I have written these notes in the blog it has made me realize what approaches were best for me. I have utilized many of these approaches, and find them quite helpful. My goal was to prevent others from experiencing the trials and tribulations I went through in attempting to promote my books.

I hope these notes will motivate others to get busy in promoting their book. Nothing will happen until you get busy promoting your own book. Years ago I was working on a project, and I kept delaying any major action on the project, until a friend finally said, “It’s your baby, and nobody is going to do it but you.” I always think about what my friend said as I begin to develop marketing strategies for my books. My book has been sent to the publisher for production. My other books can be previewed at {}.
