The worst book promotion ideas that will never work

September 10, 2018

Many new writers are excited about their first book. It is understood that when you are trying to promote your book, you want it to be read by each and every one. But, there are certain things which you must never do while your book promotions. You will read about the worst book promotion ideas in this article.

 

Being Too Desperate in Social Media

 

There are some authors who sent an immediate “buy my book” message once they are followed. You must never do that. A good author who is confident about his content would never do that.

 

Portraying Emotional Reasons

 

Never use any emotional reason like, you are financially broken, your mother is in the hospital or your dog is not well, for selling your books. Readers buy books from confident authors, not from bagers.

 

Requesting Free Book Promotions

 

If you want to promote your book for free, there are some free book promotion sites available. But you must never ask any influential promoter to talk about your book for free. You must understand that it is a business. Requesting him to do it for free, will discourage him from even opening your book, even if he wishes to read.

 

Not targeting your book promotion well

 

Promotions of your book should be planned well. Not having a planned campaign will not allow focusing on the audience your book is for. You must understand your content. You cannot sell a science fiction novel to a person who is looking for a book on health and fitness.
