How to Drive Buyers for Your Book, in Droves
Have you always dreamed of writing and publishing a book? Then you won't want to miss this Twitter chat on January 31, 2012. You will get expert tips on how to market your book and drive sales up.
This hour-long chat on Twitter is designed for you -- authors and aspiring authors. Today, even the largest publishers do a limited amount to market most books. As an author, it’s up to you to take charge, make your book known, and find buyers. And today many of the sales efforts are online, or with a combination of online and offline.
We'll be sharing tips from those who know how to market books. On hand will be:
