Announcing the 2014 Facebook Marketing Guide for Authors

Facebook is a great platform to market your book. With over a billion users, the opportunity to get your book discovered is immense.

Sadly, promoting a book on Facebook is not easy. The interface is clunky and there are myriad traps built-in designed to squeeze your ad dollars and waste your time.

At BookBuzzr, we have invested significant resources in building two book marketing apps for Facebook.

We decided that it would be useful if we demystified the process of Facebook marketing and made it accessible to the author community. We studied up on cutting edge marketing practices being advocated by Facebook experts such as Mari Smith, Dennis Yu and Jon Loomer. We then merged this with our deep understanding of the specific requirements of book authors. The result is a short, useful guide designed to help you:

  1. Get on to the radar of powerful journalists who work for major media outlets such as the New York Times.
  2. Catch the attention of Power Readers such as book bloggers and GoodReads reviewers in order to get them to read your book.
  3. Build relationships with your current readers so as to position your future books for success.

The guide is expected to be completed and available as an ebook on Amazon, Smashwords, BookBuzzr and Freado by January 25th. If you’d like a preview copy of the guide, please send us an email to support@bookbuzzr.com and we’ll be happy to send you a complimentary PDF version of the book.

    Hi Frank,

    Thanks for stopping by and reaching out.
    As John Wanamaker would say, “Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is I don’t know which half.”
    Marketing does take time and there are no guarantees.
    The goal of writing this guide however is to reduce your odds of failure and improve your return on time spent.

    Regards,

    Vikram
