Bulk Marketing Kits (A La Carte Marketing Kits)

How will a Bulk Marketing Kit help my promotions efforts and ultimately sell books?
They create word-of-mouth about your book, which is simply people telling other people about your book and how much they like it. It's key to helping generate high book sales. After all, you're certainly going to generate more interest in your book if 300 people are helping you promote it rather than just yourself.

Here's some ways you can use them to generate interest:

  • Pass out the bookmarks at book signing events.
  • Give the bookmarks to your local library to pass out for you.
  • Send the postcards to your relatives.
  • Pass out the business cards to your colleagues.
  • Pass out the business cards to new acquaintances. It's a great way to let people know you're an author!
  • In each piece of mail you send (even bills!), drop a business card in the envelope. You never know who might be interested in your book!
The possibilities are endless. All you need is a little creativity. Just think of all the people you meet—who are ALL potential sales—that you could announce your book to but can't because you don't have a Bulk Marketing Kit.
