Increasing Book Sales using Twitter

Do you find sometimes it’s more challenging to sell your book than it was to write it? These days, with all of the self publishing options, the competition to sell books is fierce. Did you know most authors only sell 100 books, or less. So what’s the secret to reach readers who buy books?

Not to toot my horn, but rather to establish my book can’t be that bad, Linked Lives has received several 5-star ratings and won an international book award, yet sales are slow. Why? I’ve been sending press releases that resulted in media coverage of Linked Lives, as well as created a book trailer, a website and other marketing strategies. Still, I haven’t experienced a huge increase in sales.

Therefore, I continue researching to discover what has worked for other authors. Today I came across this article about using Twitter to increase book sales and wanted to share it with you. I hope you find it useful. If you are already “tweeting” about your book, would you be willing to share what kind of success your having?  Has it increased your book sales a little or a lot? I would love to hear what is working for you—especially if your book has sold over a thousand copies. How’d you do it? Thanks for reading my blog!
