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.

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