Going to the Dentist Can Be Good PR

I went for my six month dental cleaning today. Not very exciting stuff generally, but today, I mentioned to the receptionist that I’d just published my first book. As it turns out, she’s a big reader and by the time I’d finished having my teeth cleaned, she’d already downloaded my book to her Kindle and posted it on Facebook. How fantastic is that?

Early on in this process, I created business cards with Kristin’s fabulous cover for One Big Beautiful Thing on the front and a brief, one-sentence description and “Available from Amazon.com” on the back. Today, not only did the receptionist at my dentist get one, but so did the woman I always see at the post office and the woman who sells me dog food every month. It wouldn’t surprise me if they all buy it, and I think they’ll enjoy it.

The truth is every writer’s personal network goes beyond family and friends to regular acquaintances who might be very happy to know you wrote a book. It’s worth asking someone who you think might be interested in what you wrote if they’re a reader and if they say yes, give them a card.

From what I understand, word of mouth is still the best way to sell a book, but you have to tell people about it before they can tell anyone else.

  2. The problem with so many plans for attaining Internet marketing success
    is that there are many forms of marketing that just about everyone else has
    been using. Internet has successfully provided employment to many.
    Traditional strategies have always been associated
    with an immense budget and market research requirements.

  4. Like everyone else, I get by in alll theese places with no more
    than manageable discomfort. I don’t get a reclining seat at the baseball stadium or the basketball arena.
    Moore important, at least tto me, is that neither does the seat in front
    of me.
