Tim Grahl is the author of Your First 1000 Copies: A Step by Step Guide to Marketing Your Book, and he’s the interviewee in a new Creative Penn podcast. If you’re taking the next step in self-publishing your book, check out this interview and learn from one of the experts.
Tim has always been an avid reader, and enjoys working with authors over large corporate entities. He has a lot of great advice about how to bring your e-book into the world. For example, he talks about how to choose the perfect title for your book, noting that authors are oftentimes too close to their own work to choose properly. He advises researching the most successful titles in your genre in order to discern what title will garner you the most clicks. He also knows that most books, including traditionally published ones, never sell more than 250 copies. If you can sell 1000, you’ve moved beyond your network. Getting to 1000 copies sold is great marker for an author who’s doing something right in marketing. Tim prefers to automate his social media, for example, because it’s important for marketing purposes but can prove to be a distraction. He focuses on a well-structured day in which he has specific creative periods. Tim is full of great advice, and you can read or listen to his interview in the link below!
