This definitely makes it harder for you to promote your book, but not impossible. According to, more than 1000 self-published authors made $100,000 from selling on Amazon in 2021.

So what can you do to achieve (and maybe even surpass) this number? The answer lies in knowing how to market your self-published book in a way that increases sales, which is what we are going to discuss in this article.

To be able to turn your book into a best seller, you need to grab the attention of your potential readers and turn them into buying customers who purchase your book. It all comes down to showing them why they should read this book and how to get a hold of it. When done right, self-published book marketing could easily turn your book into a bestseller.

The first thing you have to do before publishing your book is to write a show-stopper description. After the title and cover, this description is the first selling point of your book; it should intrigue the readers and grab their attention. Because no matter how good your book is, people need to know what it is about and actually like it enough to be motivated to buy and read it, and that is what the description will give them.

It takes time, patience, and creativity to spread the word about your self-published book and build the urge in your readers that encourages them to buy it. And as useful as the tips mentioned in this article are, you should only use what you know is going to work for you and your audience. Learning how to promote your self-published book is only the first step, now all you need to do is to apply your own spin to these ideas and start attracting more potential readers.

8. Should I self-publish, go hybrid, or traditional?When you work with me, you will get all the support and resources you need to self-publish your book. While I am biased toward self-publishing because of creative, financial, and marketing control, we have connections with experts who can help you find a book agent/write your book proposal, or connections with done-for-you services so you can sit back and relax.

The book must work at small scale. Designers always like showing you the hi-res version of their image, which is fine, it needs to look nice at scale, too. Still, your very first task is to shrink that right down and see if it works when tiny.

The shorter your other front material, the more room you have to give readers what they really want, which is a taste of your book itself. Make sure that your first chapter is strong, and let readers get there fast!

The first is Mailchimp (or any other mailing list provider.) They will store your email list, send mass emails, eliminate duplicates, handle the unsubscribe process, and plenty more. Some people find Mailchimp hard to use and prefer Mailerlite. If you are ambitious and tech-confident, you might want to use the more powerful Convertkit.

Savvy authors have recently been choosing to self-publish their first ten thousand copies and then transition afterwards into a publishing deal. This preserves full royalties from the early sales (which you hustled on your own in either case) and then allows you to negotiate with publishers from position of strength since your book is already proven.

If you want to self-publish your own book (whether that's a novel or a journal), you just have to upload all of the book information to the KDP author dashboard. This means you provide a cover image, the interior contents, a title, and your keywords. After that, Amazon does the rest.

Even famous authors like Margaret Atwood and Robert Kiyosaki used beta readers when self-publishing books like Double Persephone and Rich Dad Poor Dad respectively. Rich Dad Poor Dad was one of the first self-published books to appear on the New York Times bestseller list.

When you first self-publish on Amazon, you are given a choice of just two categories from a very limited menu. This is often missing the specific sub-categories where you wish to place your book.

Many publishing companies encourage writers to give their business book manuscript to their friends and families. At first this seems like a great idea, but there are problems with this strategy. For example, do you know if your friends and family are a part of your target audience?
