Visibility and Book Sales: Marketing Your Small Press Book
This meeting is on the second Tuesday of the month, in Anderson Room A.
With over 800 books per day published in the US alone, publicity for small press books has never been more necessary…and more difficult.
The goal of “Visibility and Book Sales: Marketing Your Small Press Book” is to provide writers of all genres with the necessary tools, money saving techniques, and networking skills to market their books with maximum effectiveness. Topics include: creating a cohesive business strategy, utilizing traditional and social media, creating websites and newsletters, giving readings and other methods of selling books, balancing your marketing budget, and thinking outside the box to find your fans.
