Marketing Bookmark: Use a Little Oomph, Build a Door

Marketing Bookmark - Use a Little OomphHere are a few book marketing tips that are always good to remember, especially on the hard, hard days.

The difference between try and triumph is a little umph (oomph). — Marvin Phillips

If you want to succeed at anything, you have to do something more than just try. You need to put in some work. Even a little work will make a difference. If you need help, ask your friends and fellow authors. — John Kremer

If opportunity doesn’t knock, don’t wait. Build a door.

I don’t know who said this originally, but I love the sentiment. If people don’t come to you, there is a reason. You haven’t given them a good reason. Clear and simple.

Build a door people can knock on. Build a door they can enter. Build a door they can knock down. Build a door they can blow up. — John Kremer

And, of course, it always helps to put up a sign so people know you’re there: Good stuff this way. Just open and enter!

Because you are alive, everything is possible. — Thich Nhat Hanh

Hanh is not talking about everything in a theoretical way. He’s talking about it in a very practical way.

Because you are alive, everything is really possible. And not just possible, but doable. And not just doable, but achievable. So start today doing what you love. — John Kremer

Never forget this.
