Well, I have been reviewing books since 3 years here and I have noticed that there are some extraordinary books that have failed in the market just because there was no 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,

1. Create a blog with your book title.

This is very important as this would give easy exposure for your books. Write an short article daily and involve your readers in it by asking them questions through social media or blogs. Increase your readers by arranging book contests. Use Tumblr, WordPress or Blogger for a start. Remember your blog should have a good vision and should help people first, don’t over promote your book.

One example for a good author blog is Robin Sharma’s Blog.

2. Write Guest posts in great blogs.

This is something which PR agencies don’t do it as great as you think. If you are writing a book say ‘Love in Mars’ , why don’t you write a article and create some magic in famous blogs and keep the readers excited. This way you also use the readers of those famous blog’s to visit your book blog as well as you give your book a good exposure that people will talk about.

3.Create a Media Kit

-professional business cards with your book cover in the back.

-A head shot picture of you and your book.

-A neat biography telling why you are uniquely talented to write this book.
