1. Posters advertising your book

If you have placed your book on consignment in local bookshops don’t underestimate the value of a simple poster. They will help your book move out from the pack into the spotlight.

Get your new book in front of potential readers.

2. Flyers

Cheaper than a bookmark, printing up flyers can be effective. A community cookbook increased sales when flyers were dropped in 1,000 letterboxes across the suburb and adjoining areas.

The flyer showed the editorial team, writers, and photographers involved, with a link to a shopping cart website where the book was sold.

As a result, 192 books sold in just 2 weeks with ongoing sales (5 or 6 each week) happening regularly as people saw the cookbook and asked where it was purchased.

Multiple flyers were left at a pet shop advertising a dog obedience book and its accompanying owner-pet training sessions. The result was book sales, training course bookings, and an happy author.

3. Bookmarks/bookstubs

They are simple but they work. When you sell a book, insert a bookmark so the reader can hand on to a friend.

4. Author business cards

To introduce yourself to others as a published author an upmarket business card exudes confidence.

When the plumber asks for you phone details let him know you are a published author by giving him a author business card.

The card can include an image of your book(s) on the reverse side and/or your image. You contacts will be intrigued and impressed that they have spoken to someone of note.
