Book Marketing Question: Why Is It So Hard to Market a Book?

Book Marketing Question: Why is marketing my book so hard?

During the past few weeks I’ve had a number of authors write me to complain about how hard it is to market a book. Well, gosh, it is hard.

It’s hard to write a book. It’s hard to publish a book. It’s hard to carry out a book marketing plan. It’s hard to do Internet marketing. It’s hard to keep up with social media. Life is hard.

If it were easier, everyone would write a book. If it were easier, everyone would publish a book.

Thank God, it isn’t easy. Otherwise there would be so much competition that marketing would be even harder. Social media would be even harder. Everything would be harder.

Thank God, it’s just hard, not harder.

Now, having said that, don’t forget that I’m the Book Marketing Ambassador of Fun!

If you don’t want writing a book to be hard, then write from your heart.

If you don’t want publishing a book to be hard, then publish from your passions.

If you don’t want marketing a book to be hard, build relationships from the heart.

Share with others. Accept their offerings of help. Help others in return. Give, give, and then give some more. That’s the most fundamental law of marketing books.
