You can’t just throw your book up on Amazon and hope its greatness will shine through the thousands of other books your target readers are viewing.

Checklist 5 takes you through your marketing plan. If you missed the Publishing Your Book checklist yesterday here it is.

Book Marketing Assets:


1 Will you be marketing your book both online and offline?
2 Have you created your book marketing assets?
3 Have you made a list of your DREAM 100 targets for your book?
4 Have you created your book press kit?

You should make a list of at least 50-100 dream targets for your book.
Think podcast hosts, influencers, press journalists, partners, dream
clients and more – you will be sending them a free copy of your book. Your
book press kit will entail details of you, your book, sample chapters as well
as sample interview questions.

Book Marketing:

1 Have you a website/funnel built for your book?
2 Have you decided on a book sales model?
3 Have you decided how you will fulfil orders?
4 Have you high resolution images, banners posts for your book?
5 Have you a 3d mock-up of your book created?
6 Have you email marketing swipes created for your book?
7 Have you sent your book to your DREAM 100?
8 Have you collected testimonials and endorsements for your book?

When it comes to marketing and actually selling your book – you have a
number of options. You can sell your book at a normal price ($9.95 –
$19.95) or you can give your book away free and just charge shipping –
(highly recommended). Remember your book should only be the lead
in to your higher priced programs.
