The Not-So-Secret Secret to Selling More Books

The secret to being a successful author isn't really a secret at all. It's actually quite simple. To sell more books, you need to have readers who want to buy them. It comes down to 4 simple steps...

Step 1: Build An Audience
Finding readers isn't difficult. Start a reading list, give away free copies of your favorite books, and share insights from your own work.
Step 2: Develop a Plan
Without a map, you'll get nowhere. Determine your goals, develop a book marketing plan, and launch it to the audience you've already built.
Step 3: Connect with Readers
Launching your book is only the beginning. Keep writing and share new work with your readers to stay top-of-mind and relevant.
Step 4: Optimize Your Funnel
Data is so important. Review what's working and what's not, then tweak your author funnel to improve book sales.
