How to Make Your Book Discoverable
Here is a tip to help you reach the largest possible audience in online searches: use the best keywords and tags for your book. Begin by brainstorming words and phrases that truly fit the subject and content of your publication.
To research your list of words and phrases, look up “google’s keyword tool” on your computer and open it. Type in your words and phrases and click the search button. Your keywords and a list of similar ideas will appear. Spelling, plural, singular, spaces, and hyphens all affect a keyword’s effectiveness. Note the search numbers and look for “low” competition and high numbers. Research each word or phrase to come up with a list of keywords and phrases to use as tags in your online accounts and blogs. This will help your publication appear in searches and attract more readers to your ever-more-popular book.
Marketing Strategies to help you Sell more Books
