help with the process, but it’s better that you start with your budding career
beforehand. Try a few “publicity” marketing stunts.
Email eminent Book Publishers
Start by sending your book(s) precis, blurbs, and other
jaw-dropping accounts to famous book publishers. It might take a bit longer for
them to respond, but it’s all worth it. Make sure your email message is
friendly, precise, and portrays your personality. Remember, the results will be
phenomenal and worth covering yourselves up in confetti and cake’s cream. The
best publishers include Penguin Random House, Harper Collins, Hachette Book
Group, Macmillan, and Simon & Schuster.
Start Book-based blogging
Before you consider buying any online book promotion services
agency, it’s better that you start blogging. It’s a great way to
step up the game by using the right keywords, general reader-based searches,
and tag words. Besides, you can learn several tips and tricks to improve your
blogging skills online. Some popular blogging websites to promote your
manuscript online include Medium, Blogger, Weebly, Ghost, and Ezine Articles,
to name a few.
Throw a few bones (blurbs) to a Vanity Press
If you are looking for promotional freebies and other magical
marketable incentives, luring notorious vanity presses can do the job for you.
To make the Mexican wave happen smoothly across the “authors’ life-work
diggers,” come up with two or more made-up inspiring blurbs — shortened
descriptions of books at the back of the book covers. Don’t forget to play this
catch and mouse game cleverly, because there’s always a big fish watching. But
if you aren’t aware of how Vanities work, do not attempt this marketing stunt
that might sting you in the back.
Join Facebook Authors’ Pages & Groups
Joining social media and becoming the joker could stir the
nuisance in your favor. However, some people think of a clown as an individual
known for their energetic flippant personality—a person who has nothing to do
with society or intelligence.
Probably one of the best ways to promote your book. Join Facebook
groups and pages. Besides that, you need to poke in the fun and meet your
opponents on these platforms. Joining social media and becoming the joker could
stir the nuisance in your favor. However, some people think of a clown as an
individual known for their energetic flippant personality. Now it’s time to
prove them wrong. Create Facebook posts about your book that appeal to your
audience. Also, the best way to use Facebook to promote your books is by
posting your blogs, writing routines, and other relevant activities.
Create a YouTube channel
Use the power of audio-visuals to empower your successful book
marketing stunts online by joining up YouTube. Create your videos that have it
all to lure viewers into clicking on your book video. You must create
high-quality content combined with eye-catchy video titles and noticeable
thumbnails. However, things will take time to stir up on YouTube. Long story
short, they’re good enough mixes of cinematic, audio, illustrations to invent
marketing magics for your book.
Run a Campaign with Flying colors
You can also try running a series of ads on several social media
platforms. Use each of them accordingly to capture the readers’ interest.
Besides, there’s a vast audience 24/7 active on these social networking websites.
Therefore, you can create an attractive book marketing campaign for driving
traffic to your author’s website. Best of luck!
Make rapport with Influencers on social media
Another great way to create a marketing stunt for your book is to
hire influencers or sway them with your communication skills. Do not forget to
use your contacts and rich sources to get ahold of them. If you’re lucky enough
to collaborate with a social media personality, your book will reach the
shooting stars in a brief period. Definitely!
Create breathtaking book video trailers
Why not create a movie-like video trailer for your book. You can
easily find copyright-free images, sounds, and other editing features online
free of cost. So, why not give it a try! It will work wonders!
Use your Book’s cliffhangers to your advantage

nail-biting, this book promoting idea is for you. You can post these little
mind-bending book twists and ends on Facebook or send them as tweets on Twitter.
