You're investing time, money and energy to write and publish your book. But are you investing enough time to market it, so you can guarantee that your hard work pays off?

Writing a book can be a great way to build your business, attract more clients, and reach more people who need your help. But even the most amazing authors end up with boxes of books sat in the garage, because they're not marketing their book well enough.

I'm sure that you don't want to miss out on KEY opportunities that could make or break your book's success. Or have a book that doesn't sell or costs you money rather than brings in a good income

Of course marketing your book is something that works best when you do it from the day you start to think about writing it. When you build your community at the same time, this will give you the motivation to finish and publish your book. They will become your raving fans, and may well become your clients

But don't start panicking if you're further down the line. You can still craft and develop an effective book marketing strategy, that will help you to ensure that you have the right things in place to promote your book.

And I'd like to show you how.

By popular request, I am launching the 30 Day Book Marketing Challenge this April. Whether you are just starting to think about writing a book, you've sold your first hundred copies, or you have boxes of books to sell, join us and MAKE SURE that your business book is A SUCCESS!

The 30 Day Book Marketing Challenge starts on Saturday 1 April. 

You'll get dozens of great strategies to sell, market and promote your book - whether you are on the starting blocks or have already finished and launched your book. 

I'm Karen Williams, Book Mentor and the author of the upcoming book, Book Marketing Made Simple (out May 2017). Every summer I run a successful writing challenge to help authors get off the starting blocks and out of their own way to get their book done. 

This year, to celebrate the launch of my new book - and because my clients have asked for it - I am pleased to be running the 30 Day Book Marketing Challenge. I want your book to make a difference to you and your business.

This is a fun and affordable way to get support to promote your book. Not only will you have access to me and my team, but you will meet others at various stages of the author's journey, who will support and inspire you. 

The 30 Day Book Marketing Challenge is for you if:

  • You're writing a book, and you're not sure about the best and most time effective way to promote it alongside writing, running your business, and supporting your clients.
  • You know that marketing is important, but you feel overwhelmed with all the activities that you could do. You end up wasting time or doing nothing, and want the strategies that work.
  • You've already published your book, and you're not sure how to use the book to grow your business and attract more clients.
  • Your book is on Amazon already, but it's not selling, and you want to know what to do next.
  • Something holds you back from telling enough people about it. You worry about what people think or say, so you find yourself keeping it a secret. But you really want to use your book as an effective marketing tool.
  • You are ready to do what it takes, and will make time for simple daily tasks that will give you results from your book.

Here's how it works 

On Saturday 1 April, the challenge will start. For just £97 for the month, you'll receive support and guidance to market your book. This is what's included:

  • 1.

    30 daily book marketing tips that will take you between 5 and 30 minutes per day to implement. Covering all sorts of areas including blogging, podcasts, video, social media, networking, speaking, joint ventures, book launch, creating products, getting PR and more, you'll learn plenty of tips to use your book to get you noticed, of which I anticipate you will select up to 10 that will work best for you.

  • 2.

    4 group webinars where I'll go into some of these topics in more depth - like creating compelling content, producing products from your book, how to launch and sell your book, and creating your bestseller plan. You'll get the chance to ask your questions live and all sessions will be recorded to watch again at your leisure. Did you know you can start to sell products off the back of your book before you have even published it, ensuring that your book helps others at the earliest opportunity?

  • 3.

    Access to a private challenge-only Facebook group where you can ask your questions, and get accountability, community support and motivation. And I'll share my tips and advice!

  • 4.

    BONUS: Free signed copy of Book Marketing Made Simple when it's launched on 1 May 2017 (value £14.99) for the first 20 people who sign up.

  • 5.

    BONUS: Free 30 minute mentoring call for the first 5 people to sign up (value £100).

  • 6.

    VOUCHER £150 : Towards the cost of the Book Marketing Mastermind weekend in Portsmouth on 20 and 21 May, where you can create your own bespoke plan with support and guidance, and get a bonus PR strategist to work with you on your unique angle (6 places remaining).

What are you waiting for? Grab your place now!

Your book will be most successful when you start to engage with your readers who can't wait to buy your book, and it's never too early to start marketing and talking about it. And if you've already finished your book, it's time to implement the strategies that work.

It's easy to sign up - just click the button below. The sooner the join, the sooner you get access to the community and the resources and, if you're lucky, you can also get one of the free mentoring calls, a free signed copy of my book and the £150 voucher towards the mastermind weekend.

When my mentor asked me how much I was charging for this programme, they said that it was worth so much more than £97. Especially since I'll show you how you can recoup your investment many times over with just a few simple actions that you can take. But I'm fed up with authors failing to achieve success with their book and I want it to be easy for you to take this next step.

You will have the ultimate tool to stand out and make a bigger difference to do what you love.

  • You'll learn how to use your book to attract clients – rather than chasing them.
  • You will get strategies to make marketing your book and business easier.
  • You will develop a plan to sell and promote your book in a fun and enjoyable way!

I do hope you join me!

Best wishes

This is what people have said about my previous challenges

Get a great support team cheering you on with your book

I really enjoyed doing Karen’s 10,000 word challenge last summer. I’d planned to take the month out to write my book anyway, but being someone who is easily distracted, I knew it was going to be tough to stay on track during the month. Plus I know I enjoy recognition for my efforts, and with a book that all comes at the end once it’s published. The process of writing the book itself can be quite a solitary experience, and I was aware that this could actually sap my energy rather than fuel it. So I was delighted to be invited to join the challenge just at the very same time I was gearing up to knuckle down. 

And it was exactly what needed. The framework reminded me what I was working towards, and gave me ideas to stay motivated. But best of all I loved the camaraderie of the other writers in the Facebook group, all working on different things but all working together. There was a tiny bit of competitive spirit, but mostly it was one of collaborative about support and about cheering each other on. That was fantastic. It was just so lovely to announce I’d managed 3,000 words that day or whatever the word count was, and feel I was telling people who really cared and who understood exactly what that meant to me. 

I have stayed in touch with many of the other participants in the challenge and I know we will continue to support each other in our writing careers. We will also cheer loudly for each other when our books are published. Having the challenge made writing more fun and more productive and I’d thoroughly recommend it to anyone - beginner or experienced writer. For your first book or for your 50th.

I wrote 18,000 words and then published my book!

Karen’s 10,000 word challenge was just the incentive I needed to get started on writing my book – Confident Business Writing. The advice she gave via the webinars was extremely helpful and gave vital encouragement throughout the process.

The challenge helped me to get into the habit of writing every day and create a robust plan which enabled me to write over 18,000 words in the month. I also gained valuable knowledge of the publishing process, and the book has given me enhanced credibility as a writer and proofreader.

I wish I hadn't procrastinated for so long! I'd advise all would-be authors to get on and do it! It's a hugely satisfying thing to do and to see your name on the front cover as the author is reward for all the hard work.

Subsequently, I’ve been part of Karen’s Author’s Journey and have attended a number of her events which I’ve found very valuable in the post-publication process.

I seriously recommend the book writing challenge, even if you are just thinking that you need to start writing a blog or newsletter, let alone a book. Karen’s opening question ‘what do you want to be known for?’ was the challenge of the challenge for me and started a significant period of really working out the direction for my business. 

As a result, I have more focus and vision for my business and this has definitely been a key to some successes this year. 

Karen is always on hand and is very active in the group, so you get her advice and great tips for writing every day which will really build your confidence and make the whole idea of writing a book more approachable. 

It is such great value, I would find it hard to understand why anyone wouldn’t want to do it!

Writing a book has been at the back of my mind for a while now. Karen knew this and every so often, when we either bumped into each other or were in contact, she would simply ask 'and how's that book coming along Rachel?'

I then needed to hear about the value of having a business book from other sources as well, until eventually this year's challenge came at the right time for me to get going. 

Having waited so long to get started, I was determined to meet the challenge and beyond - and did it! I set my own personal challenge of 15,000 words - 1,000 words for each day that I was working in August - and did them. Thank you Karen for continuing to nudge me along.

Karen's 10,000 words Book Challenge came at the perfect time for me. I so enjoyed her pre-work - the insightful questions and tips; the facebook group really helped me be accountable and the regular webinars had lots of really useful tips. The proof is in the pudding. By 31st August I had written 10,032 words and now I've published my book! Thank you Karen.

Taking part in the 10,000 Word Summer Book Challenge has been motivating and supportive. Karen's depth of experience and her expertise shine through, while at the same time I was able to feel that no question was too simple to ask. The group were a great support for each other and I know that we will keep in touch. I have completed my book, and can't wait to tackle my next book idea. Highly recommended.
