There’s tons of book marketing resources and advice out there, but you can’t try to do everything you read about. This author’s advice is to stick to the tasks that you enjoy the most with book marketing, so that it doesn’t turn into a task you dread doing.
She further evaluates what that means in two parts. In the first part she says, “Don’t try to do everything”. Don’t take every single tip you find and put it into some massive marketing check list that might help market your book.
It’s too overwhelming. Instead, pick a few things that you think you’d be good at doing, learn how to master them, and then start trying to use them to get your results. That leads into her next point, “Do the tasks you enjoy the most”.
Many authors do not enjoy the marketing and sales aspect of self-publishing, because after all, their passion is typically to write. That’s why it’s important to pick the marketing techniques you actually enjoy doing, like engaging on social media, or speaking at an event, so that it will seem like less of a chore.
