Four tips for you today.
First, I’m launching my first Book Marketing Q&A with John Kremer webinar at 9:00 p.m. Eastern on April 12, 2015. It’s free. I know it’s short notice but I want to test this new webinar system before launching it big time. So whoever is paying attention on Sunday evening can take part.
Here’s where you need to register: http://app.

Next, for those of you would like to listen to a replay of the webinar I did with Jay Boyer, here’s the replay link. If you recall, the webinar was all about publishing children’s books via Amazon Kindle and making up to $15,000 per year with each book.
Here’s the replay link (good until Wednesday, April 15, at midnight Eastern time): http://cf.jjfast.com/cbf-replay2

Joel Comm, author of Twitter Power 3.0, created Do Good Stuff t-shirts and sold over 150 of them. Now, the key lesson is here: He asked the people who bought them to take a photo of themselves wearing the new Do Good Stuff t-shirt and tagging him in the photo when they shared the photo in Facebook.
That’s great promo for him. And great promo for the people who bought the shirt. He intends to start a photo album on Facebook to share all the photos with his followers.
He also wrote: If you happen to be doing good stuff while wearing the t-shirt, all the better! #DoGoodStuff
Now, you can do something similar. If you don’t sell t-shirts. Ask people to take a photo of themselves holding your book. And share that photo on Facebook while tagging you there. Then you can share all the photos you get.
So, to follow my own teaching, if any of you take a photo of yourself holding 1001 Ways to Market Your Books by John Kremer and tagging me @JohnKremer when you post it to Facebook, I’ll share the photo with my followers. Note: When posting the photo of my book and you, be sure to also include the following: Check out my book (your book title) by your name as well! That way when I share your photo, you’ll get a promo to all my followers.
So get cracking today!
