Would you like to have the kind of followers that the Twilight saga has? Or how about the Harry Potter books? Sure, who wouldn’t right? Here are some thoughts on how create the fanbase you need to sell books.
There are several things you can do to build your fanbase and sell more books. All it takes in a lot of time, effort and dedication. Did I mention it takes a lot of hard work?
The most important thing you need to have the right kind of attitude. If you aren’t completely sold on your book and believe it is the best work ever produced, then how do you expect others to feel the same way. It’s natural to have doubts about your book, but if you’ve taken the time and effort to write, edit, design and publish it then you have a winner on your hands so you need to show people that confidence. Confidence is contagious.
Another major way to earn readers is to offer them something of value. You can give away free copies, write helpful and informative blog articles or give readers free excerpts from your book. When people see your generosity and realize that you want to provide them with knowledge or entertainment above making a sale, then you’ve got them on your side.
People don’t want to just make someone rich they want something in return to better themselves and when they see that you aren’t out to only make a buck but want to give them what they are looking for, they will buy your book.
