Market your Book! Relationship expert Dr. Molly Barrow

Yes, writing books is a competitive business. Only a small percent of books ever get published and only a tiny percent of those books sell more than a few hundred copies. A book may be considered an A-list book when sales cross the 5000 copies mark. But regardless of the number of sales, you can use a published book to create credibility and give you a unique topic to discuss on television, radio and print.

A marketing structure is necessary in order to be successful in the book writing business. Publishers rarely do any marketing for your book unless you are already a huge name. Most novice writers have expectations that are way out of line with the actual book marketing a publisher will provide.

Your book is the content but the marketing platform is what really makes a book sell. Platform assets are necessary to create your own publicity program, using word of mouth or by generating a strong presence on the web that could help you build a seminar business. You can teach people your subject expertise and sell your book product at the same time. (Herman, 2007)

You do not need to be a national household name. You can create a brand around yourself within your community and your area of expertise, become a respected voice and generate product sales. So, if you are thinking about writing a book, do it! Then, market it like crazy.
