When I heard that Sarah Mae was writing an ebook about marketing and selling ebooks, I was so excited! You see, I have a few ebook projects that I had just begun working on when I heard this news. The timing could not have been better. It got even better when I was chosen to review the book. I love reading books, telling others about the books I've read, and I needed to read this book. What could be better?
My only problem with reading this ebook is that it took forever for me to get through it. I kept stopping to go do what she suggested! That was exactly what I needed from this ebook~ the knowledge and inspiration to get my ebook project off the ground. Sarah Mae's book did just that!
How to Market and Sell Your Ebook
teaches the average person how to publish his own ebook and get it out there for others to read. You don’t have to be a publisher or a published author in order to share your ebook with others. It is possible. You only have to hear the story of her ebook 31 Days to Clean
(which sold over 11,000 copies in its first two months of release) to believe that, but this ebook really shows you how you can make that same story a reality for your own ebook. Sarah Mae walks you through each step in detail. Mind you, it’s not a 10 Step Plan that is laid out for you to follow exactly, but she does give you very clear, simple steps to follow and the inspiration to dream up additional ways to market your own work. (Remember how I constantly had to stop reading?)Sarah Mae covers everything from content, building your platform, and creating a community to upfront costs, how to defray the cost, and where to publish your ebook. The last section of the book is where I got super excited~ “Your Step-by-Step Marketing Strategy.” In this section she guides you through the maze of branding and building a buzz for your ebook. It includes a discussion about choosing titles and url’s and hashtags, asking others to help you get the word out, using the power of Amazon, and how to have a spectacular launch. Did I already say that Sarah Mae has included everything
you will need to know? The only thing she doesn’t tell you is how to write!
I promise you will not be disappointed with this book! It is more than worth the $4.99 cost!
Just before the launch of the ebook, I had asked to be considered to write a review. The book launched (with a great 50% off sale) before I heard whether I had been chosen to review. I couldn’t resist. I had to buy it and start reading! When I was chosen to review, Sarah Mae very generously gave me a free copy of the ebook to read for the review, plus a copy to give away. So I am giving 2 of my 3 copies away! One will be given here and one on my other blog
