Well, I have been reviewing books since 3 years here and I have noticed there are some extraordinary books that failed in the market just because there was no proper promotion or due to bad promotion by promotion agencies. Sometimes you should know the technique’s to promote the book by yourselves.
Here are some of the best tips to promote a book online and offline.

This is very important as this would give easy exposure for your books. Write a short article daily and involve your readers in it. Help your readers, arrange contests and have a good vision.
