Self-promotion process


It has turned out to be a lot more complicated than I first thought it would be. Having to self-promote I have discovered just how much books and authors there are, making it a challenge to grab a reader’s attention. Good thing is I don’t give up. After hours of research and endless frustration I think this is one of those life lessons where I need to learn patience. Things don’t happen overnight and a lot of hard work is ahead of me.

There are a lot of sites out there who says they promote you if you pay certain amount, even if I would be able to pay it does not guarantee anything and I have found a lot of unsatisfied Authors with some of the paying promotion websites.

So far I am self-promoting using WordPress, Facebook, tumble and Amazon deals. Still trying to discover more while learning patience and balancing my time.

Does anyone know of good promotion websites, where you don’t have to spend all day on the computer?

Has anyone tried Twitter and Goodreads for promotion?

  1. I don’t have patience either. And I suck at self promotion. I use Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Pinterest, Instagram, WordPress and I’m on LinkedIn. I haven’t done any of the paid promotion things. I just post my info and teasers. I’ve done a book event at a local bookstore. I’ve participated in the release parties on Facebook. I don’t feel like I’m doing too great with any of it, but I keep trying. I guess patience is key.
    I wish you the best of luck!
