Friday Five/Marketing Round Up

First, check out my marketing on one of my favorite blogs, A Walk in My Shoes. She relates every writing post to a pair of shoes and we all know how much we love shoes!

Here are my fav marketing posts for the week:

Promoting with Virtual Tours - In the process of promoting, what became clear to these authors is that the people they thought would be most interested in our book could best be reached through social networking.

Why won't publisher's blog?
Can it be that there are still book publishers out there who don't see the relationship between blogging and book promotion?

Brilliant thoughts on Marketing from Elizabeth Law (Egmont)
- As Vice President and Publisher of Egmont Books, she was certainly in a position to give us a wealth of information on the industry.

Press release mistake #1
- Answers the critical question: ”How do I research and use keywords in my press releases so the search engines can find them and bring targeted traffic to the release, and then, to my website?”

Can retweeting help you write a better blog?
Tweeting isn’t just a tool for techies any more. It had become mainstream and a great way to reach my audience.

Have a great weekend and holiday on Monday!

Looking forward to your interview with Ms. Root of Waxman Lit. She has a partial of mine right now and she seems like a dream agent.

Thanks for the great info.
