Statistically, new self published authors make less than $500 according to The Guardian.
Many new and veteran authors overlook the potential power of social media when it comes to creating Online tribes and finding book buyers and book reviewers. While social media as a sales channel can bring disappointing results, authors who see social media as an Online COMMUNITY with mutual contribution and not merely a broadcast microphone will see better results says Author Social Media firm M3 New Media.
“The fact is even WRITING THE MANUSCRIPT is marketing. As authors we have to THINK about marketing when we are writing our books.” Michael D. Butler
Some of the questions new and existing authors need to ask themselves before launching any new book project are:
1. Is there enough demand for the topic I am writing about?
2. How many books have been written on my chosen topic?
3. How many of those books have hit Best Seller?
4. Do I have an active, Online community that is connected to my topic?
5. Do I have speaking gigs (Online and in person) lined up to speak to people that are passionate about my cause and my project?
6. Do I have a social media presence where I am considered an influencer and thought leader on my topic?
7. Have I interviewed enough experts on my topic and could I feature their content in my book?
These questions are a good baseline indicator of whether or not a book will do well in the marketplace and in bookstores. There are other indicators we use as a publisher to determine market viability and timing.
