More about marketing

Here are some interesting blogs about marketing books:
The Book Designer

“Develop an audience of people who like your writing so you can sell enough copies on the first day to get your book up to the top of Amazon, where it will then get more attention,” suggests Culwell on the Publisher's Weekly site.

The Publishers Weekly site quotes extensively from “  Lori Culwell, author of How to Market a Book and founder of BookPromotion.com. It is important to collect a mailing list and allow potential users to leave their details and you can have a form on your blog page to do that: such as,:
- MailChimp (free and good for basic email list)
- aWeber (costs $1 to sign up)
- iContact (works well for both beginners and more advanced lists)
- Benchmark Email (can add video and image customization)
- Constant Contact (allows for XHTML and other design elements)
"There are also numerous sites where an author can promote his or her eBook, often through targeted giveaways, including Addicted to eBooks, Free eBooks Daily, or FreeBooksy. Worthwhile outlets for hosting giveaways for print books are Goodreads and LibraryThing."
