Act as Your Own Book Publicist at Speaking Engagements and Sky Rocket Your Book Sales

What credibility you have now that you have authored a book.  Congratulations!  Now you can act as your own book publicist and increase your book sales in no time.  You are now not only an author, but an authority, an expert and to some, an intellect.  People’s ears will now start to perk up around you so now is the time to use that leverage to your advantage.  Now many more doors than you could imagine will start to open for you.  One of which is being your own book publicist.

 

Who better to sell yourself and your book than you?  After all of the hard work you put into it, you want it to be promoted the best it can be.  Many authors are doing it and it is not at all hard like you may be thinking.

 

What you have now is the opportunity to enter into is a winning cycle – and stay in it.  Most authors speak to promote their books, acting as their own book publicist.  Most speakers become published to build credibility to be able to sell products, thus increasing their book sales.  Now that you are an author, you just need to become a speaker and then keep acting as both.  Wearing both hats will benefit you greatly.

 

If you keep this winning cycle going, you will bring in a pretty penny.  As a matter of fact, according to a recent survey conducted by The National Speakers Association, 46% of speakers received more than 50 extra speaking engagements since publishing their book.  Wow!  Interested now?  Of course you are.  You know an excellent opportunity when it arises.  But you may not know how to get started.  That is where I come in.  Let me help you to get your winning cycle started and show you how to keep it spinning:

 

I’ll educate you on how to:

  • Get started by speaking for free (only at first) at organizations such as Rotary Clubs, Kiwanis and other non-profit organizations.
  • Create a 1-paged promotional tip sheet that includes your biography and/or portfolio and any other information on yourself you deem necessary to share.  It will also include information about your book and it can easily be sent ahead to meeting planners and event organizers.
  • Have the organization or corporation your are speaking for provide you with:
    • Written, audio or video testimonial/endorsement of your speaking engagement with them.
    • Introductions to at least two other organizations or corporations that would benefit from booking a speaking engagement with you.
    • The opportunity to sell your book in the back of the room.

 

Many authors and speakers make an excellent living by speaking for free while selling their books and/or other products in the back of the room.  Publish your own book and you can easily become one yourself.  You deserve it, so what are you waiting for?
