Christian Authors Get T-Shirt Visibility
If you’ve written a book or blog, you want people to read it. But they can’t read if they don’t know it exists.
How do Christian authors get the word out about their book? Usually in these ways:
- Author website
- Amazon search results
- Facebook or Twitter posts
It’s not that these methods are bad. After all, authors want to do everything possible to promote their book for free before they start spending money on advertising or a publicity service.
Personal Encounter, Not Remote Control
So, how can you easily generate interest in your book? One often overlooked way is to be an ambassador for your own book or blog. Tell people about it when you go shopping or do errands, go to church events, conferences and other meetings.
Let people ask you about your book and engage them in conversation. People love to meet authors. You’ll want to carry extra copies in your trunk, or at least carry business cards with a link where they can buy your book online.
How can personal encounters sell lots of books? Because it follows the same dynamic that people use when they try to sell by remote control online. That is, you want to trigger a buzz. More than just sell them a copy of your book, you want to get readers to talk about it with others. Nothing will create buzz for a book like someone telling their friends they talked with the author of an interesting book at the grocery store.
Your one-to-one personal encounter can ignite whole networks of people who will talk about your book, in person or online, and buy it.
Excellent Conversation Starters
How do you get the attention of the people you encounter? Not by wearing the name of your book. You’d just be a billboard. You want to create curiosity. You want to engender intrigue so people come to you and ask about your work. Give them the opportunity to ask questions.
