Making it easy for your readers to purchase your next publication is as simple as using the right resources on your website. Your book needs the most visibility in order to make your writing and efforts worth while. Do you need to improve your sales online? Take advantage of these great tools, and let me know how these work for you!
1) Secure and simple buying experience – PayPal
Turn your website into a safe and secure eCommerce hub. PayPal is a great tool that allows you to add a button without the purchaser having to leaving credit card information or fill out lengthy forms. This makes the process simple and is processed directly through the buyer’s account. With so many people making purchases right from their mobile phones this is a great solution to encourage them to buy directly from your website.
2) Steamline your book sales – Quickbooks Enterprise
You’ve attracted more book sales, and now you need to keep track of your progress. But how do you manage all of the transactions? Keep your focus on your writing and marketing and allow Quickbooks to handle the rest. The great part is you can import reports directly from PayPal. Use this resource not only to handle your personal finances, but your business account(s) as well.
3) Capture more leads – Aweber
Turn your visitors and subscribers into loyal followers and customers. Aweber is a powerful email marketing tool with an easy to follow interface that allows you to create marketing emails, newsletters, and so much more. Use the service to announce your next book or event and offer great incentives for your fans.
4) Stay in touch with your fans – Google Voice
Would you like to have a business line set up instead of your personal telephone number? Google Voice offers a free service that is easy to set up, and even includes voice mail messaging. Connect a selected number from your area code to your cell phone, and use this on your website as a part of your book promotion or offline events. This is a great way to stay connected with your followers and customers without having to publish your personal information online.
Hopefully you will find these sales tools helpful for your book promotion. Are there any that you would like to add as well?
