Be Prepared To Market Like Mad

Be Prepared To Market Like Mad

Prepared strategy is very important. 2 main steps to kick-start :

  1. First, I would put the book for free on a Saturday because most people will have free time to download and read.
  2. Second, I would post about it on my Instagram to get my followers' attention and hope other people would share (which they did in their stories).

Showing Your Face is Important for Social Media Marketing

Showing Your Face is Important for Social Media Marketing

  1. After describing why I put it up for free for a few days for mental health awareness week, I shared it in my story.
  2. Not only this, but I showed my face.
  3. Showing your face in your stories is crucial for more interaction and in the video, I stated how to download it and that you don’t need a kindle to download it — only need to download the app for free on any device.

Lay Out Steps Clearly

Lay Out Steps Clearly

  1. If you noticed, I also didn’t provide a link to the book in the actual post as people cannot click on this link.
  2. Instead, I provided the link in my bio as the top link in my link tree and also posted on my story of how to get there.
  3. You see, on social media, you have to really lay out every step the people need to take to get your product — otherwise, they won’t.
  4. People are lazy, especially on social media.

Post Instantly

Post Instantly

  1. In an age of instant gratification, we want things now, and the same applies to buying products via social media which we are used to scrolling through day and night with the odd click here and there.
  2. That means you must post instantly with your post. Don’t just put a post up and leave it, but nurture it.
  3. It is like a plant — you must water and feed and touch it so it grows. The same applies to your following and to this marketing business!

Focus Where Your Followers Are

Focus Where Your Followers Are

  1. OK, so if you are most active on Instagram, as I am, then I would put the main focus there.
  2. Basically, put your focus where your followers are.
  3. Remember, they're not just followers, but people who respect and buy from you.
  4. So for me, that is on Instagram. As a coach and yoga teacher as well as writer, I gain most traction through my Instagram.

Use All Social Media Platforms Too

Use All Social Media Platforms Too

  1. Don’t forget there are other social media platforms not to forget about, such as Facebook.
  2. I made a Facebook group recently. In my Facebook group, only I can post. I usually post gratitude posts as the group is called Gratitude Attitude — made to make people more grateful and happier!
  3. So I decided to post in there because it is a mental health book that will make you more grateful and giving.
  4. To my surprise, I had some people that I didn’t know respond.
  5. I then pasted the link to my book on the post for everyone else to see it but also responded individually to the comments.

Post in Other Facebook Groups

Post in Other Facebook Groups

  1. Aside from my Facebook group, I also posted in other Facebook groups, but be careful not to spam.
  2. I am a part of many Facebook groups because I am an author and writer and there are many groups that support you. It’s wonderful really as you get to meet many other authors and make friends with them too.
  3. I have been using these groups in the lead-up to releasing my book and posting links to my books there.
  4. I have also used these groups to make friends and support fellow authors by reading other authors' books and reviewing them.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
