You finished your book, you’re ready to start promoting, but you don’t know where to begin. To start an online marketing eBook strategy to increase your eBook marketing sales, you can implement three easy steps that will immediately start generating a profit!
1. Sell to your own list.
Email to them and keep your opt-in subscribers #’s growing. Use autoresponders to handle your promotions. Then, you don’t have to be there in person to promote. That’s a winner to use busy people! One bookcoaching client, Jeanne sold 68 books the first week she announced in her ezine slot.
It’s OK to send the promo out again and again-with a few changes and new information each time. At the bottom of your email, send them to your website with a link where you offer the book.
Repetition and consistently sending messages to your groups will catapult your sales, no doubt about it.
2. Write articles of interest to your niche.
Your audience is out there looking for information to help them.

After 2 months at twitter, my opt-in group subscribers zoomed way up to about 1/3 of my targeted traffic. Join up and get educated there-people are friendly. You can look me up there too as coachjudy. If you are looking for someone special, just Google their name and see what comes up. It’s a way to step up and take action.
