Another manner of promoting your e-book is to create coupons that you can arrange to be inserted in magazines and other printed materials, where readers may collect and use in exchange of getting part of your book. With this kind of promotion, your potential customers will have easy access to your work with less cost on your side in the developing of the coupons.
Social media is a very much part of people’s lives today, and so it is a great idea to connect with bloggers to help you in your e-publishing campaign. Based on observations, it is said that the very same people who subscribe to blogs also are lovers of e-book.
