How are YOU engaging with your readers?Congratulations. You’ve finished your first book! Go you. Now you’re ready to hit ‘publish’ and wait for the millions to roll in, a al The 4-Hour Work Week… What’s that you hear? Crickets? Doh!
Writing your book was the easy part, publishing, launching and getting in front of your readers, that’s the part that’s tricky if you’re not sure how to go about it or don’t have a huge list.
Engaging with your readers takes a bit of finesse, a sprinkle of fairy dust and a lot of know-how and can-do mindset bending. Figure this stuff out, and you’re singing in the rain…
Let’s show you by telling… meet Stefan. He’s an indie author like yourself, writing about the things he’s passionate about, writing about his personal experiences and sharing his self-published books with friends and family in the hopes that they’ll share it with their friends and so on and so on.
Only it’s not really panning out that way for him. For some reason, none of his close friends and family seem at all interested in his books! Stefan is at a loss as to why this is, and is super frustrated with the lack of support he’s getting.
How on earth is he going to make millions with such a lack of interest in his books?!
Does this story sound familiar? It sure does to us. Not only are Lise and Liz indie authors who have self-published books themselves, but Lise really struggled with engaging with her own readers when she first started.
Crickets were definitely the norm after publishing a couple of books and she was more than a little miffed when even her own family and friends weren’t clamoring to grab a copy of her hard written masterpieces. How rude, right!
The AH-MAZING Liz to the rescue! Not only is Liz a self-published author too, but she is an amazing ‘people connector’ and she know’s a thing or two about engagement. Together, we worked on ways to increase not only engagement with Lise’s current readers, but also in drawing new readers into her ‘book funnel.’
Non-Fiction Book Funnels is all about how to attract raving fans to check out your books, entice them to grab your books, “bribe” them with an incentive to get on your mailing list and then ‘get’ them with you’re amazing personality, wordsmithing wizadary and all-round indie author awesomeness. Now try saying that last line three times really fast!
