The best time to promote yourself: now
But what if you don’t have a book or anything to sell yet? What are you selling then? Simple: You’re selling a connection to yourself.
Sure, you don’t have a book for sale now, but you will in the future — so you need to connect yourself to interested individuals now so you can inform them of the book release down the road.
You can encourage potential readers to stay connected to you in a few simple ways:
- Follow you on Twitter
- Sign up for your free email newsletter
- Like your Facebook fan page, or befriend you on your personal page
- Subscribe to the RSS feed for your blog
If you get someone to connect with you in any of these ways (preferably in multiple ways), then you establish a lasting connection with a person that doesn’t likely disappear.
