Promise: How to Promote Your Book without Using Social Media

We are promising people how to promote their book without using social media.  It is a popular topic.  Some people just aren’t comfortable with social media, and they are so relieved to learn that they have other options.  That’s my promise.  You’ll get several tips that you can use immediately.

You hear a lot about social media, but what you don’t hear is that it’s not really effective for book marketing. Click To TweetIt serves a huge purpose for authors.  Twitter, in particular, is great for building relationships, making connections, and also for professional development.  You can learn a lot from the links to content that others share on Twitter, but people aren’t using Twitter to find books to read and buy.  The magic happens in other ways, particularly when we connect with people who are the most interested in the books that we write.

    Hello Daniel and Sandra,
    I just finished listening to How to Promote Your Book without Using Social Media. It was fabulous!!! I so thrilled with the plethora of information shared by Sandra. I already subscribe to her Build Book Buzz newsletter as well as am a member of the Real Fast Results group. I also appreciate finally listening to a webinar that isn’t selling something for hundreds or thousands of dollars. As a almost published author, I need ideas that don’t cost me a fortune. Thank you both so much.
