EyeSpecs- Post #3

Are you an author, writer, blogger, book promoter, book marketer, book coach, or publisher? Drop in weekly on the Motown Writers Network site where Eyeology INC will post snippets, tips, videos, quotes, and Q/A’s to bring value to whatever it is that you do.

Today’s Q/A

facebook_1473614682691If you are an author your goal is to spend quality time on social media to build your reach and engage with potential fans. The one thing commonly felt by most authors is that they lack the time to do quality engagement. Time is the one most valued commodity that you MUST invest when building your voice and image. It is your responsibility as an author to ensure that your authentic voice and image is represented accurately and consistently. Not some of the time, but EVERY time. In the case where you are unsure of where to start there are plenty of branding, social media, and marketing firms like Eyeology INC that are more than capable to assist you in the creation of that unique voice and specified image. This is however the first step to marketing and must not be taken lightly. Again, your first impression must be your BEST impression because your fans will forever define your Brand by it.

The writer’s worst nightmare. You researched, you wrote, you finished, and then published your book. You wait for the sales and……….*crickets*. This is something that can happen to any kind of author, traditional or nontraditional. We think we have a hit on our hands only to later be checking it for a pulse.

What happened? Why is the book just not selling?

The Market

Remaindered Titles Remaindered Titles

In the not so distant past, there was only one way to get published and that was traditional publishing. Though many authors cheered when they were finally able to cast off the chains of New York, let’s at least respect that agents and editors might have known a thing or three about the book business.

Writers would often get vexed at the stack of rejection letters, believing they couldn’t actually write well. This was…

Promotions, marketing, and sales have different, yet interconnected goals. Yet many lump them into a single category. All three are necessary to generate sales that make a company profitable. Promotions identifies the need or creates the desire . Marketing shows why this particular product solves the problem or satisfies the want. Sales closes the deal by asking for the purchase and giving the details of how to buy the product or service.

Please share to help your friends find the answer to the promotional challenges.

Combining two concepts, Never Can sayGood-bye creates an innovative spin on the ghostly genre. With a tagline, “When love is forever, death is only the beginning,” it is comparable to Ghost and The Others.

Imprisoned in her family’s home, the spirit of a murdered child waits for her parents to free her. But they have moved on to new lives as has her killer. Randi must bring them back together, so that they can forgive themselves and make amends. If she succeeds, they will all heal and she will be freed to also reincarnate. If she fails, their need for revenge will damn them all.
