Begin by distributing high-quality marketing materials such as postcards, banner ads, posters, bookmarks, and business cards. Xulon Press offers printed material to meet your every need. Distributing marketing materials to your target audience offers you the perfect opportunity to forge relationships with potential buyers while out promoting your Christian book.
A professionally generated press release announces news about your book to the media and will generate interest and attention. Xulon Press will happily prepare a well-crafted press release for you with an attention-grabbing headline-and distribute it with your online bookstore url link to over 35,000 subscriber journalists, 250,000 subscribers through RSS, eMediaWire, Yahoo! News, Google News and Topix.
It is worth your while to invest in an author website to help promote your Christian book. Once your website is created about you and your book, you can then direct people to your website (via word of mouth, e-mail, or your other marketing materials) to learn more about why they should buy it. Authors who work to build a strong web presence and have Internet visibility generally sell more copies of their books than those who limit their sales to local markets only.
Most importantly, never underestimate the power of word of mouth marketing. Appeal to friends, family members, and fellow church attendees to spread the word about your book and get people talking. And, with the emergence of many social networking sites such as Facebook and YouTube, word of mouth marketing has become an even more powerful and useful resource for Christian authors.
