So I’ve been trying to market the book: Old Flames. A really great ebook by E.R. Yatscoff. The ebook giveaway is still going on till the end of October, so you are free to join until then on Facebook. That is one way I have been marketing the book. So it had been good. Got about 100 subscribers. That will hopefully amount to 50 reviews or more. It would help boost sales.
Next is trying to boost incoming traffic to the authors website. This is done via website linking. Don’t link the name of the site i.e. :www.yatscoffbooks.com. Use a different term i.e.: firefighter ebook. This will help search engines define how it is linked and changes the search terms of people looking for your site. I also get incoming links via directories and blog rss feeders. We’ll see how well they work. It is a slow process as overdoing it one month can ruin google’s view of your website. Slow and steady is the key.
There are also more traditional approaches to ebook marketing like newspapers and paid newspaper reviews, but those are expensive and beyond my budget.
