A great way to get promotional ideas for your books is through brainstorming with other writers. This can easily be done with online message boards, forums and marketing groups can be a huge help. I’ve been a member of networking groups where you work on marketing ideas together and the members promote each other. This works face to face, online or over the phone.
Work With Other Authors to Brainstorm Promotions
You can create a group of people so that you can brainstorm ideas. This group can be made up of friends, family or business associates. Anyone who can and will offer useful input about your ideas can be part of this group. You can post a link on your website to ask people for their thoughts. It would be interesting to post a graphic of a “suggestion box” and invite visitors to send their ideas.
Online Book Brainstorming Options
This doesn’t need to be an expensive promotional opportunity. Online promotional brainstorming should be free. Our promotional forum is a great way to brainstorm and share ideas. Anyone can ask questions, start a discussion, ask for feedback about your website or let your hair down and have some fun. This offers chances to become acquainted and to share ideas and suggestions. You may even find writers who write similar genres, use the same settings or any other similarities.
Book Promotion Does Not Need To Be A Solitary Activity
Working together along with sharing ideas and suggestions is also a way for all of us to learn more and to develop new friendships. These friendships can easily turn into productive promotional relationships for each person who is involved. I’ve also found the people who participate and help one another, attract more attention to their books.
