New e-Book coming out August 12, 2012 on Kindle - called Bestseller: 100 Free or Nearly Free Ways to Market your Christian Book

Exciting days with release date coming up.  You can't find it yet on the worldwideweb, but
on August 12, it should be available to all on Kindle.  It's going to cost $.99 cents when it
comes out - that will be the introductory price on Kindle.

Here's a few of the 100 to make you thirsty for my new book, Bestseller:  100 Free or Nearly Free Ways to Market your Christian Book by Cheryl Moeller



16.  Get a Kindle or Nook e-reader or free app and become familiar with it today. 
Get a free e-reader app for your PC or iphone, if you don’t own a Kindle or Nook.  You need to know how to use the book e-reader you are selling on Kindle. You can buy some free books or .99 cents books to practice reading on an e-reader.  When publishing an e-book on these sites, you will know more appropriately what the issues are to consider.

17.  Write a news release and send it out far and wide. 
Use the free PR sources online to make your press release have more credence.  These
online sites are search engine optimized to make your news releases higher up in google. The press releases have two purposes:  1.  To serve as an announcement of the release of your book just generally online.  2.  You can use to send out one of these press releases with other materials to print, TV, and radio media.   http://mashable.com/2007/10/20/press-releases/

18.  Hand deliver postcards about your book and your being a local author to homes in your city.
Know your city’s code for distributing to front doors of homes in your city.  Enlist your friends and family and meet back at your place for a barbecue. 

19.  Choose to offer one of your e-books, not on other sites, and allow customers to pay whatever they want to pay for a PDF file of your book (including nothing) on a free Paypal “Buy Now” button. 
For a limited amount of time, have a Paypal.com account set up allowing people to choose what they can or want to pay.  Your advantage will be “uniquely different” sometimes sells.  Create on paypal.com a for-profit “Buy Now” button.  Unless you are a non-profit organization, then you put up a “Donate Now” button, subtracting the fair retail cost of the book when you send their tax receipt.

20.  Start building your e-mail address list for your monthly or weekly e-zine newsletter one name at a time.
Why bother with one email address?  Soon you have 100 emails which eventually add up to 1,000, then 10,000 plus email addresses.  Your long email address list starts with one.
