Do You Need Help Promoting Your Adult Book?

0 Comments


You’ve just had your first erotic book published. Or, maybe it’s your second or third, it really doesn’t matter. You’re feeling excited and ready for the next step as a published author: Your book’s promotion online.

You settle down in front of your computer and start to look for places to submit your book listing to but, it doesn’t take you long to realise there’s a big problem. You discover that your book, because of its subject matter/genre, is not accepted on 9 out of 10 of the book listing sites on the internet.

So, what do you do? How can you successfully market your erotic/adult book online if you are unable to list it on all these sites?

Well, this is where I come in. By searching endlessly for suitable places to list my adult e-book, Inner Sins, I’ve saved them all in my favourite’s folder for future reference. In this article I have listed some of them here for you, so all that you have do is to visit them and submit.

Easy! So, get ready to start promoting!

‘The Free E-book Promotion Site.’ This is one site I’ve saved but have not yet submitted a listing. This is for two reasons: a) I’ve yet to receive a review for Inner Sins and b) At the time of writing, they’re not accepting new reviews as they’re currently updating the site but it’s still worth keeping an eye on.

HED: Hunt’s E-book Directory

For ease of promotion it’s a good idea to bookmark all of these sites or, even better, save this article for future reference.

By listing your book on most if not all of these sitesHealth Fitness Articles, you can be assured of increasing your books exposure and your future sales. Good luck!

Book marketing efforts can be categorized by three levels of exposure; local, online and regional/national/global.  Here are ideas that can be used on each level to help increase your book sales.

Book marketing efforts can be incredible stressful for writers.  After all, you did all the hard work already.  You wrote the book, you probably found a literary agent and then you got it published.  You’re a story teller, not a marketing professional.  Well, I’ve got news for you, if you want to receive those big royalty checks that might have inspired you to write that book; you will need to become a marketing professional.  Why would you take the book this far only to stop at such a pivotal point?  This is where the book publishing process gets interesting.  This is now a test of your skills to see your dream to the end.  There are three efforts I suggest you focus on when creating your book marketing plan.

Local efforts can include posting a flier at your neighborhood grocery store or attending a city fair and distributing business cards.  At this level you are placing yourself in front of your reader and allowing them to see you are a person, as one of them.  You would be surprised at the sense of pride someone takes when they know that you, as an author are from their neck of the woods.  Come to think of it, don’t you take pride in telling people you are a writer?  Let every outing from your home be an opportunity to mingle and spread the word about your book.

Your online efforts take your book sales to the next level because it spans far outside of your local reach.  An online book campaign when created properly can increase your book sales.  Using something like viral marketing, will multiply your efforts and in turn multiply your books sales.  Viral marketing is the process in which you duplicate your advertising by using a system that will then duplicate itself.  For example, an email can be forwarded to hundreds, thousands and even millions of people.  That is the simplest form of viral marketing.  It is one unique method that is then passed on to others who also passes it on and so on and so on.

Regional, national and global efforts can take cheap and simple book marketing ideas to another level.  If you have a big budget you can accomplish a lot at this level.  For the common newly published author the cheaper the techniques, the better.  On a regional level, find out about advertising that covers your area.  I live in Connecticut and the terms most often associated with this region of the United States are New England, East Coast and Tri-State area.  My local cable stations will advertise businesses as far as New Jersey.  New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and even Massachusetts are all within driving distance from where I live.  This is an advantage for connecting with people, events and promotion events.  Nationally you will be able to promote your book through channels that strive to advertise to the entire country.  Such channels include television, radio and magazines.  Finally, if you want to market your book on a global levelHealth Fitness Articles, the internet will be your best bet.  If allows you to sell books in your sleep.  Isn’t that a nice dream?
