Use Bookmarks To Promote Your Book

We love a good bookmark.  Who doesn’t?  Bookmarks are something that we take for granted but when we don’t have one at hand we scrounge around the house to find something, anything to put between the pages of our book.

Authors should take advantage of the fact that everyone needs a bookmark, or more specifically, several bookmarks.  Get custom made bookmarks that match the cover of your book and include details on where the book can be purchased.  This will work for e-books too.

Before your book is even published setup your book for pre-order on your website and start giving away the bookmarks.  Some ideas for spreading the word about your book:

  • Ask your local librarian if you can leave a bookmarks at the checkout counter for people to pick up before they leave.
  • Check with all your local bookstores and see if they will give them away with a purchase.
  • Leave your bookmark inside books in the library that are in the same genre as your book.
  • Leave behind a bookmark at coffee shops, restaurants or anywhere you people can sit at a table.
  • Ask friends and family to pass out your bookmarks and be sure to send a bookmark to everyone who has purchased a book!

42 Rules of Marketing (2nd Edition)

What’s it about?

“42 Rules of Marketing (2nd Edition)” (also available in our marketing bundle) by author Laura Lowell is a compilation of ideas, theories, and practical approaches to marketing challenges the author has been collecting throughout her career. The idea was to create a series of helpful reminders; things that marketers know we should do, but don’t always have the time or patience to do.

The author, Laura Lowell, says “As you read through the rules, I only ask one thing. Don’t take them literally. They are composed of interesting stories, anecdotes and observations. Keep the book on your desk as it is intended as an “entertaining antidote” to long, boring conference calls. I suggest you don’t read them in order, but flip through them until something strikes you. If it sparks an idea, or reminds you to do something, then I’ve done what I set out to do.”

Feel free to pass the rules from this marketing book along to anyone you think might benefit from a friendly little reminder. Use them to start a discussion about what other people think the rules should be. I invite you to share your “rules” and be part of an ongoing discussion. After all, these are my rules. What are yours?”

What they’re saying.

“These 42 Rules are gems of advice and gentle reminders that every marketer needs to hear from time to time, packaged in concise, fun-to-read nuggets. If ‘marketing’ is in your title, you need to have this book in your library.” Chris Shipley, Co-Founder, Guidewire Group Inc., and Executive Producer of the DEMO Conference

“It’s an actionable guide for anyone looking to improve the quality of their marketing. Laura’s rules have sparked ideas with me and my team and have helped us make a lot of progress. Keep it on your desk, refer to it often and tell a friend.” Melissa Johnson, Director, Annual Fund, Walter A. Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley

“It’s a funny, honest look at how marketing really works. Laura has written a book that captures the basics we know about but don’t always do.” Kathy Johnson, Co-Founder, Consort Partners
