The fourth part of a book proposal is A MARKETING PLAN. It shows how you plan to market your book. Do you have a website? Will you blog? What social media do you use? How many followers do you have? In today’s market, it is vital that you market your own book and that a publishing house knows you have this capability before they give you a contract.
Here are my social media sites.
I post a weekly blog on my website at: www.Christiancommunicator\blog\
My Facebook address is: www.facebook.com/Susanosb. I currently have 2340 followers, most of whom are authors or people in Christian publishing.
My LinkedIn address is: www.linkedin.com/in/Susanosb/. I have 2412 followers on Linked-in. This is more of a professional organization than Facebook.
On Twitter: Tweet to Susanosb. I have 538 followers.
To be perfectly honest, I need to post more often on social media and develop more contacts. I usually only post once a week.
There are other social media sites, but I don’t want to spread myself too thin. Only set up what you can handle well.
