Nancy has gone through each of the promotions, spelling out the why, the what, and the how. The book even spells out what is the minimum required to get some value out of each strategy. For example, for blogging, if you don't like to blog, Nancy suggests that you at least put up a landing page, detailing the minimum you need to have on it.
I know I've heard the term buzz before, but loved the use of "buzzable". It immediately helped me understand and get a visual of the promotion strategy.
An excellent resource for beginners and experts alike - you will find yourself highlighting often, having aha moments, and making a follow-through list of putting these promotions to work for you.
Being new to Kindle self-publishing, I find having this information collated in one very affordable eBook is such a time saver. Reading Nancy and Michelle’s books always inspire me to continue with both writing and promotion.
This is a book that I highly recommend to.
The core idea behind this book is to leverage platforms with a large number of users and turn them into YOUR loyal followers. It starts with the social networks we all know about (LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and Google+), but this book provides a number of specific ideas that aren't commonly known. (Like how to get Facebook to promote your book... for FREE!).
The middle part of the book details a number of quality strategies of ways to grow your personal brand by leveraging YouTube, podcasting, interviews, creating feeder content (through blogging and writing articles) and how to maximize existing relationships.
My favorite part is towards the back of the book. This is where Nancy & Michelle provide an extensive list of actionable, free ideas to promote your book. Here they talk about sneaky, untapped ways to promote your books, without requiring too much extra time. Included are ways to get results with SlideShare, Flickr, social bookmarking, blog commenting, using free giveaways, Udemy and how to streamline the entire process with one of my favorite tools: IFTT.com
Ultimately, it's getting harder and harder to sell books. That's why you need an intelligent strategy that doesn't require too much of your time. "55 Free Promotions That Work" is chock full of ideas that you can immediately implement.
I love the way the authors break down the techniques into different groups that will suit different personalities. I knew I wasn't a Rock Star, but thought I might be a Best Friend. It turns out I'm actually part Emily Dickinson and part Wizard, which is also pretty cool!
This book is a quick, easy, no-fluff read that cuts right to the specific actions you an take to sell more books. Will be working my way through it again. Great for newbies but comprehensive enough that most indie authors will find some useful ideas too.
I received a free copy of this book via Story Cartel.

But a lot of what they wrote was common knowledge. And for that I gave them four stars.Read more
