The Importance of Your Personal Brand By Maria Elena Duron | Book Marketing Strategies and Tips For Authors

The Importance of Your Personal Brand By Maria Elena Duron | Book Marketing Strategies and Tips For Authors | Marketing Your Book - Best Ideas to Get Your Book Sold! | Scoop.it
Darren M Jorgensen's insight:

I was pretty surprised to find this post this morning, because Ms. Duron is touching on many of the same points that I've been going into great depth in on my own blog as of late. My latest project has been to guide authors and small publishing houses on how to sell books and othe written words in a Fractured Communications Landscape - where almost any kind of desire can be satisfied with the click of a button (you may have to wait a few weeks for supply chains to catch up with the speed at which you can press the "Buy Now" button on Amazon!).

Darren M Jorgensen's insight:

I originally wrote this blog entry several months ago, but have used the technique described several times since with really helpful results. And so the other day I decided to update it and repost it for my newer readers who may not have seen it yet.

 

And yes, authors, this technique can work for you, too! I've used it several times when I've had to develop the creative ideas that my business depends upon (I own a Video Marketing Production business), which involved a lot of copy writing of video texts. Not to mention my own fiction writing...

Book Marketing Bestsellers: Book Promotion Blog: Are You Aiming Too Low in Your Book Marketing? | Marketing Your Book - Best Ideas to Get Your Book Sold! | Scoop.it
"Are You Aiming Too Low in Your Book Marketing?" My Facebook stream, as usual, is very active. Here is an image that floated by my stream early this afternoon: If nobody laughs at your dreams, you are probably aiming too low.
Darren M Jorgensen's insight:

This entry scooped from John Kremer's "Book Marketing Bestsellers: Book Promotion Blog" hails from mid-September, but only just caught my attention. He's got some good advice here for getting started on a Marketing program for your products - your written words.

 

Enjoy!

Darren.

Don’t Forget The Awesome: 5 Steps To Creating Brand Content

Don’t Forget The Awesome: 5 Steps To Creating Brand Content | Marketing Your Book - Best Ideas to Get Your Book Sold! | Scoop.it
Advertising and content marketing used to be nearly interchangeable. Branded content was typically developed as a by-product of a traditional ad unit, creative or original enough to stand out and shine on its own merits.
Darren M Jorgensen's insight:

Came across this blog entry just now, and was impressed at how relevant it is to my project of guiding Authors and small Publishing Houses on how to Market their products to their targeted community. It doesn't go into much depth, but it does give some insight into areas Authors might do more research about, in order to Market their products (their written words) effectively.  Hope you enjoy! Darren.
