Ways to Promote and Bring in People

283_Book_Signing_Somethin_s_Brewin

There are magazines available that writers don’t know about or push them aside. They off tons of information in so many different categories. I love The Writer. To show the great contents of this magazine, I’m going to post some articles now and then to show the great information.

In fact, I love this book so much, I don’t throw one away. When I give workshops, I pass the used ones out free.

This information is taken from the May 2017 magazine. The topic is “Standing room only” on page 8 written by Jennifer L. Blanck.

Connect with your chapters:
“Reach out to organizations you belong to and ask them to extend invitations to local members and/or feature the reading in calendars and event communications​.
Author, Beth Harpazmhgas reached out to high schools, colleges, and graduate​ school alumni. She has sent postcards with the book cover printed on one side. The other side presents​ the event information, her group affiliation, the book subject, and a handwritten message saying, ​”I’d love to meet you.”

Conduct a workshop: Lead a workshop. During the talk, offer a Q&A time.

Work with the Media: Local media outlets look for good news stories. Send press releases and offer to give interviews for area papers, or write up an interview​ pitch with a​ relevant hook and submit​t it.

Book Groups: Ask the bookstore managers to include you in their monthly newsletter. Visit book and writing clubs to connect with​ other writers and authors. Invite libraries, bookstores​, goodreads.com, meetup.com and ReadersCircle.org to your event. Contact​ universities​, colleges, and schools and invite members of the English, journalism, to your event. Make the content “Writing a Book.” Partner​ with the local location and offer to donate a portion of your book sales for an hour or after your reading​.

Contact stores: Find delis, bakeries, and coffee shops and leave off flyers with your upcoming event.

Prizes: Give out dorr prie or hold a raffle.

Offer refreshments based on your book’s theme.

No one Attends? Use the time to talk with the bookseller​ about your book.
