Technology has given writers of today the chance to improve their sales like never before. For instance, social media has made it possible to authors and readers to “talk.” Authors shouldn’t miss out on this opportunity to help improve their book sales. Here are some tips on how to do it:
Invest in an Online Accounting System
The goal is to sell books. When you start to receive big orders, you need to ensure that you’re getting your payments right. Many writers invest in a royalty payments accounting solution to keep track of their orders and royalty payments. This is useful if your books are being distributed in various mediums and several countries.
Create Online Promos
One of the simplest things you can do to improve your book sales is to create online promos. Offline promos are great too, but the majority of your readers are online, so it’s better to meet them where they are. Promos could be as simple as giving away free copies of your new book if they buy a previous title. You can give away free copies to several lucky Instagram users who post IG-worthy snaps of any of your books. You can even collaborate with other authors to expand your reach.
Engage Your Readers by Giving Teasers and Trivia
These days, it’s easier to connect with authors using social media. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other social networking sites have made it convenient for writers and readers to connect and engage. Don’t miss this chance to milk on the opportunity to engage your readers about your new and existing titles.
If you have books currently in circulation, consider these tips to help improve your book sales. Don’t underestimate the power of social media and suggestion, especially now that technology has made it possible to connect with more readers from all over the world.
