The Writer’s Dilemma: 1,000 Words for Love – http://bookmarketingbestsellers.com/the-writers-dilemma-1000-words-for-love – You may not always be able to find the perfect word, but if you can tell a good story, perfect words don’t matter. Like the story here: No perfect word for love, but a story of how one person moves against another while sleeping. Now, that’s love. And there are no words for that. But there are a million such stories. Even 7.2 billion such stories. Tell just one.

Alexa 400,000 or Bust . . .
During the past week, I’ve visited dozens of author websites and not one of them was rated higher than 1 million on Alexa.com (which is a relative measure of the amount of traffic websites get). That’s sad.
If you are not getting traffic, you’re not going to sell books. You need traffic to your website. Here are two ways that you can get that traffic:
1. Do a virtual book tour. Discover how to get traffic effectively by taking the Relationships Matter Marketing course. Details at: http://bookmarketingbestsellers.com/relationships-matter-marketing-program
2. Work the Alexa 400,000 or Bust program. There are two ways you can work this program:
First, you can do it yourself by acting on the 10-step program outlined in John Kremer’s $22 Alexa 400,000 or Bust ebook. Order by clicking here: https://www.itsolut.com/cart/AddToCartCheckout?shopID=12&prodID=49157&qty=1.
Or you can pay me to do the program for you: $400 for the 40-day program. You can order my 40-day traffic generating service here: https://www.itsolut.com/cart/AddToCartCheckout?shopID=12&prodID=48376&qty=1
Indie Bookstore Campaigns
For this Independent Bookstore Campaign, I’ll write a sales letter for your book and then email it to the top 600 indie booksellers in the United States (and a few in Canada).
Note: You can then use the sales letter to help you write your news releases, catalog copy, web sales copy, etc. Once written by me, it’s yours to use as long as you want. – Fee: only $200. Most people charge that much just for the copywriting.
Note: I’ll also tweet, pin, post, Google+, and share your sales letter page. This will go to over 50,000 followers and will remain on my Ask the Booksellers website for at least a year (to continue driving traffic to your website for months to come).
To order this service and reserve your spot, click on the link below: https://www.itsolut.com/cart/AddToCartCheckout?shopID=12&prodID=48381&qty=1
