Host Charlotte Pierce, with co-host, Laura Williams and guest Brain Jud.
Book Marketing Super Hero Brian Jud
Book marketing is, for many of us, much harder than the writing of your book. So how do you get the most out of your book marketing efforts? Are there markets that you haven’t thought of? After watching this video with Brian Jud of the Premium Book Company, you will see that there are many sales avenues that you may not realize are available to you. Or you may not have the time to dedicate to contacting all the different publishers and sales reps so you can get your book into the right hands. How happy would you be is a Fortune 500 company picked up your book to send out to all of their employees? Wouldn’t you love to have your children’s book in more libraries, day cares, and schools?
You can actually see the gears churning in both mine and Charlotte’s heads as we though of the book marketing possibilities.
