Top Book Marketing Budget Tips! How To Get The Most Bang For Your Book Marketing Buck!

Top Book Marketing Budget Tips! How To Get The Most Bang For Your Book Marketing Buck!

“They” say, “you’ve got to spend money to make money,” which is true in book marketing as well. Spending money where it will make the biggest impact on your bottom line though is the key though.

Here are a few guidelines to remember in spending your book marketing budget:

The key is to spend money to make yourself look professional upfront so you don’t have to spend money later fixing your image.

Save up until you can make it a top quality product before you even get it out the door.

Here are three great tips!

1- Cover Design

Even though people say “Don’t’ judge a book by its cover” that’s terrible advice when it comes to publishing books!

Considering the way people browse books online today, no matter great your masterpiece is, we recommend spending the money to have a professional, cover design created.

2-Editing

There’s nothing wrong with using a friend, family member or writers group to give your books a look before you publish.

However, we recommend hiring a professional editor to give your book a thorough scrubbing!

This can be costly — don’t be surprised to get quotes for more than $1,000 — but an experienced, reputable editor can make or break a run fun bestseller status.

One of the best ways to locate an editor is to check the credits of books that you’ve enjoyed to see who your favorite writers turn to for editing

3- Website Optimization

A website is one of the first impressions of your brand and a cornerstone of your author platform. Therefore, if it doesn’t look good and help you build your fan base, it can actually hurt your business.

Spend as much money as is affordable to make it look great and ensure that it provides your fans with an easy way to connect and leaves them with a great experience. If possible, hire an experienced SEO writer to create copy that drives traffic to your site.

Make sure the lead capture tool is easy to use and prominent!

Lastly, make sure your site mobile friendly!

7 Reasons You Should Write A Book For Your Business

7 Reasons You Should Write A Book For Your Business

Let’s face it, there are a lot of small businesses out there and you need a way to stand out. Writing a professional business book can give you instant credibility and it’s surprisingly achievable with digital technology to reach a global audience with your words. Attention is the first step in the sales funnel and a book is a great way to get you and your business noticed.

Here are 7 more reasons you should write a book for your business.

1. Demonstrate your expertise

You’ve spent years gathering your knowledge in a specific niche. You have notes and seminars, training programs and articles as well as a lot of know-how in your head but how do you quickly and easily prove your ability? A book with your name on front establishes you as the expert and provides an easily consumable version of your knowledge.

2. Increase your credibility and status

Authors are respected because they have achieved the concrete goal of publishing their work. People look at you differently when you say you’re an author. This increases your credibility in the market and will also give you more confidence in promoting your business.

3. Solidify and articulate your knowledge

You may have perfected your one-line elevator pitch but writing a book gives you the opportunity to expand and fully express your story. Business books are no longer dry and boring. They contain plenty of personal stories and anecdotes so you can share the unique aspects you bring to your niche. This also gives people a chance to know, like and trust you which is a key component in whether they will hire you or recommend you to others.

4. Expand opportunities for media and speaking

If you have a physical book it can act as a business card, demonstrating your ability to speak coherently on your topic. This is useful for media as there is existing credibility and a focused topic they can interview you about. A book is also recommended if you want to create or expand your own speaking business. The most highly paid speakers have multiple books associated with the topics they speak on and speaking is a great way to bring new people into your business.

5. Create multiple streams of income

You can sell your book online or at your live speaking events. You can also use the book as the basis of a larger product line to expand income streams. The book is your entry level information but you can also have an online multi-media course that expands the material, plus a full day workshop and 1:1 coaching around the topic. People might not be willing to go straight for the higher priced product but they will likely part with a smaller amount to read your book.

6. Grow your business internationally

If you market your books to a wider audience, you can attract new people to your business. They may read your book and then want to investigate your professional services further. You can easily and cheaply publish print books as well as ebooks on Amazon.com. With print on demand technology, you can sell books to the huge US market as well as other countries.

7. The book you write will change your life

Many people have a dream of writing a book, but that dream can now become a concrete goal. You probably started your business because you are passionate about something and want to change people’s lives. You have a story that needs to be told. Well, your voice is important and your words can be heard if you get them out there.  In these days of digital printing, you can achieve your goal of writing a book even with a small budget. So state your goal, and get writing!

Make 2017 the year your business stands out from the crowd.

15 Great Business Books You Should Definitely Read This Year

15 Great Business Books You Should Definitely Read This Year

15 must read books

CREDIT: Getty Images

Sales, productivity, leadership, marketing…something for everyone.

It’s impossible to check out every new book, and that can mean missing out on new ideas and perspectives that can improve your business–and sometimes you, too.

That’s why I love this list of books from Mareo McCracken, the revenue leader at Movemedical. (Consider following him on LinkedIn–he often takes an unusual approach to overcoming challenges most of us face.)

Two I’ve read. The rest I haven’t–yet.

Here’s Mareo:

This year I did something I hope no one else has to suffer through. I read 103 books. One hundred and three. Way too many for my current situation, and I love reading. (Also, I attained Diamond Status on Delta. Which means I wasn’t home with my family enough this year. Which is a lesson/regret/story for another post.)

My goal this year was to read 100 books. I accomplished that goal; it makes me proud to say it.

It makes me foolish for doing it.

So what are the two things that are better than reading? I don’t think I am any smarter or better off than when I only read 50 books a year. I just spent more time reading and less time “pondering.” I spent less time than I should have “doing”. I am not going to let that happen again.

Why I read has changed. I used to read for myself. Now I read for others.

I used to read to escape reality. Now I read to really live better.

I read to help others. I read for my wife. I read for my kids. I read for my colleagues.

Pondering (deep thinking) and doing are both more important than reading.

For the past few years, I published my list of the top 10 nonfiction books that had the biggest impact on me. This year, creating this list was much harder, because I had almost twice as many books to choose from as normal. These books were not necessarily new in 2016 (some were), but they were new to me and caused me to me think differently or change my actions in some way. These are books to “ponder” and books to help you “do.” They helped me; I hope they can help you as well.

In alphabetical order, here are the 10 books that had the largest impact on me last year:

1. The Seventh Sense by Joshua Cooper Ramo

This book paints an accurate and timely picture of the world we live in and how it is changing. The book also gives us ways to succeed in the network era.

2. American Nations by Colin Woodard

You will understand American culture, history, politics, and people much deeper than ever before. Should be required reading for all high school students.

3. The Art of People by Dave Kerpen

A modern day Dale Carnegie, this book will help you professionally and personally.

4. The Confidence Gap by Russ Harris

Solid, real frameworks that help counter the root cause of fear. Read this book, apply it, and live with confidence.

5. Guts by Sam Bracken

We all need to live our true selves. This book gives us motivation and actionable insights do to just that.

6. Mental Toughness for Women Leaders by LaRae Quy

Not just for women! This book from a former FBI agent gives you tools to help you develop your emotional intelligence and overcome mental barriers.

7. The Only Sales Guide You’ll Ever Need by Anthony Iannarino

If your full-time job is sales, you must read this book. You will use it forever. You will need it to become better.

8. The Outward Mindset by The Arbinger Institute

Stop blaming others. Once I learned and applied the teachings of this book, almost all of my personal and professional problems got better. If you only read one book on this list, read this one.

9. Power Relationships by Andrew Sobel and Jerold Panas

You can never build too strong of relationships. Usually we don’t build them enough. This book helps everyone overcome personal obstacles in relationship creation.

10. The Science of Selling by David Hoffeld

Neuroscience and behavioral science is applied to the sales profession in a compelling manner. A must-read for all sales executives and leaders.

Honorable Mentions (I really wanted to put these in, couldn’t fit ’em, though):

11. Beyond the Sales Process by Steve Andersen and Dave Stein

12. The Challenger Customer by Nick Toman, Pat Spenner, Brent Adamson, and Matthew Dixon

13. Chief Marketing Officers at Work by Josh Steimle

14. Emotional Intelligence 2.0 by Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves

15. Heavy Hitter IT Sales Strategy by Steve W. Martin

While this is just a short list, there are so many more incredible books that I am excited to read in 2017!

As Jim Rohn said:

“The book you don’t read won’t help.”
