promotional $$

Happy Wednesday, everyone!


I don't spend a lot of money on promotion - thanks to the other Babes, I was coached early, lol.

Postcards are an inexpensive way to leave information at various conferences, as are business cards. Instead of having just my name on the card, I have the book cover, a blurb and my contact information.

I buy pencils with my website address on them, for school visits. I bought pens once, but they weren't quality so I don't know that I would do that again.

Bookmarks are fine, if you spend the little bit extra to get good paper stock and use a professional printer.

I just bought 250 wrist bands that say "I love writing" and have my website on them, for 88 dollars. I don't what they look like, though, so I can post more next week. I have a young adult book coming out in April, and three school visits, so I need fun give aways for the kids.

I do as many booksignings as I can, and go to as many conferences as I can, for networking purposes more than the classes. I wear my nametag, because I am my own promotion...scary, but true, lol

 My website, fanpage and author page on Amazon are all updated - oh, and I did just hire a publicist to help me coral my wandering interests and try to find a brand for me, that fits all of me and my books.  I decided to invest in my 'career', and I will gladly share with you all what I learn as I go.

I've studied marketing, and spent a lot, lot lot of hours trying to distill what I've learned into something managable - mostly what I learned is that I will never come close to knowing enough, lolololol.

I've reached the point where I would rather hire someone to do my website and web promotion so that I can actually write!

Those are my thoughts - does anyone have a great idea on promotion that was a game changer in terms of actual sales? Please share, if you do!

This is one of the most article I liked. You gave motivation that in bussiness doesn't mean we need to cost lots of money.

I don't know who was coaching you, but whoever it is, you should be more thankful to him/her. Cut the marketing cost wasn't something you got from just learning, but comes from experience and observation, you know. That was really priceless!!

Website, indeed could help you to cut some cost in marketing. Everyone knows that. But that's only works 10 years ago. But if you talk now, marketing throught website much more harder than you think! Another competitor website kept popping up everyday.

If you're able to cut cost, but still as effective as when you didn't cut the cost. That means, you just take a great step forward.

Wasn't it a good things? For the marketing alone, people usually spent about half of his capital. If you didn't spent to much money, that should be great!!

To start some bussiness, the first thing we need to know was what we have. If you had a lot of money, you can maintain the employees. But, if we don't, we should put more effort to it.
