So, as the end of this month draws closer, it’s time for me to start to focus my energies on the launch of my book. That is not to say that I haven’t been focused on it, it’s just as the 31st gets closer I’ve had to focus my efforts on somewhat old-school ways of advertising and spreading awareness.
So, in the spirit of old-school, check out these post cards I had printed up for the book promotion via Vistaprint:
Designed it myself, with a little help from the default-templates they have on the website. Designed the customized QR code on the back of the card from QR Code Generator: They’re the ones who helped me design it in a way where the Heartblaze LLC logo could be featured in the center.
One of the things – and I’ve said this before, but I’ll reiterate – Getting the book that you have production/publication ready is one thing. Getting it out there for people to know about is an entirely different deal! Marketing/Advertising costs $$$, and yes, I know there are people out there who’ll tell you that you can go at it yourself, and be successful – but unless you already have a fan following, or a 100k Twitter followers, it’s a lot harder to go at it on your own than people will say.
Always easier said than done.
Anyway, expect a blog post about how I’m going to be going about marketing the book digitally in the near future.
