Put the link of your Ebook on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram bio.
Your Ebook's going live!
One of the best ebook marketing strategies is to go live with your Ebook. Spread the word of your Ebook all over social media. According to ebook marketing companies, YouTube is the second largest search engine after google; people tend to type in "how-to" queries on it every other day. So you can make a video of yours introducing the Ebook and upload it on youtube.
You can go live on Facebook, and Facebook will notify all your followers about your live session. This way, you will be able to reach more audiences. Always record your live streaming so you can later upload it on your account for those who have missed it or someone coming in next year to check your Ebook. Always add a link to your Ebook in the caption when uploading the video.
Give a little life to your Ebook
What would your audience likely do? Read the novel and then watch the movie made of the same novel or watch the movie? We all know most people prefer watching over reading. So why not make things easy for both of your audiences? You can attach a video related to the content written inside of your Ebook. You can also add illustrations to grab your readers/watcher's attention. Now tell us does your Ebook revolve around an amazing heist that your characters are about to conduct? Illustrate a map of that location or add blueprints. This will make your Ebook come to life, and undoubtfully will attract more readers towards it. Ebook marketers also prefer to hire graphic designers to draw an animated version of your Ebook's characters to help their audience visualize it.
Blogging about your Ebook
Who said blogging doesn't help? Pick out one of your best creations and post it on your blog. But don't post the whole thing. Let's imagine you wrote a fictional ebook. Choose a chapter with more action in it and pick a scene that is the most attention grabbing and crop the part where it gives away too much information, and posts it on your blog. People will come crawling towards your Ebook. Always promote your work in a way that wakes up a person's curiosity and make sure it never sleeps again.
Again, don't forget to attach the link at the bottom; otherwise, your ebook marketing will go in vain!
