Collaborating with book bloggers can accelerate book sales. They help you spread the word among its readers and followers. Be sure to include searching relevant blogs in your niche/genre in your marketing plan.
For all writers, it is a dream to experience good sales figures, advertising and getting a lot of attention about their work, but this does not happen overnight.
As a self-publisher, it is important to set up a marketing plan to reach the largest possible readership. Collaborating with relevant bloggers can help you a lot along the way. Many book bloggers collaborate with reading circles.
They also use various social media such as Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest and their websites. Book bloggers are now getting more influence. As these sites grow, they get more and more attention in the media and in the book industry.
Investigate carefully which book bloggers may suit you, depending on your genre, niche and audience. See how many followers they have and what other social media they use. Once you have selected the ones that may support you and your book, it is time to make a plan about whom to contact and send a copy of your book to.
We recommend that you do not outreach all book bloggers at the same time. It is better if the reviews are published periodically, possibly once a week. Book bloggers can be perfect partner for your marketing plan.
