Hoe maak je 'Media Kit for Indie Authors'? Handig artikel over hoe & wat! #boekmarketing | twittercolumn | Scoop.it

Self-Publishers! Does your media kit get the job done?

 

If the answer is no, you’re not alone. Upon conducting an honest review of their media kits, most authors find that their promotional package is not actually promoting them very well at all.

 

Authors struggle to answer two critical questions about our media kits:

1. What in the world do I put in it?

2. How am I supposed to use it?

 

If you’ve struggled to answer either of those questions when assembling your media kit, we have three easy steps to help you put together a media kit that rocks!

Via Facebook verkopen is niet nieuw, maar de start-up van Metten Koster heeft nu een Nederlands app daarvoor gemaakt.

Discover the Insider Secrets to Getting Published and Launching Your Bestseller

In fact, the majority of first-time authors who submit a book to an agent or publisher are immediately rejected. Of those who survive the cut, the average author who publishes with a traditional publishing house sells less than 3,000 copies. Authors who chose to self-publish, sell less than 200 copies.

I don’t tell these statistics to discourage you. Rather, I want you to arm you with the truth.

 

If you don’t approach this the right way—the smart way—then you’ll likely end up another publishing statistic.

25 Things Writers Should Know About Conferences And Conventions #boekmarketing

"Regarding your elevator pitch: listen, it’s a very good intellectual exercise to distill your story down into a single 10- or 15-second sentence. Again, I don’t know that it’s ever been the deal-maker, but when people ask, it’s kind of you to not bludgeon them half to death with the hammerblow of a ten-minute plot synopsis."

 

Goede lijst met tips voor wie weleens op een soortgelijk event is.
