    Default And Finally .....

    a.Does Promotion have to cost a lot?

    No, not if you approach it in a realistic way. You know how much you can afford. Set a budge for yourself. Determine an amount that you feel comfortable spending. That can be as little as $0.00

    Once you determine an amount, choose whatever advertising or promotion you want based on a projected rate of return.

    There are tangible and intangible forms of promotion. Many of the intangible forms are free or nearly free (only costs your time)


    b.Final Word of Advice

    6 simple rules

    i.Ask for what you want
    ii.Stay visible
    iii.Be politely persistent
    iv.Know the 80/20 rule – 80% of your results from 20% of your efforts. Spend 80% of your time pursuing the most profitable 20%
    v.Know the rule of 7 – people must hear about your 7 times before they are moved to act
    vi.and Follow up!


    I've really enjoyed this last month and I hope you have too. I also hope that I was able to give you some promotion advice that you can use for your own book releases now and in the future.

    You've been a really great group!!

    Thank you so much and thank you to Coffeetime Romance for having me here!!

    Thank you so much for all the helpful information and tips, Vicki. I'm sorry I haven't participated more, but I've had horrific pc problems as well as being caught up in edits and galleys. I'll make notes though and try to absorb as much of all this fantastic knowledge as I can.

    Thanks again, it's been fun and interesting.
