Tips To Help Self-published Authors Sell Books Online Fast

Today, Jill Exler, founder of jexbo,, announced her tips for flourishing as a self-published author in a tough economy. Exler created jexbo so that authors can list their self-published books, get marketing bookmarks and customize a Web page to sell books online directly to customers for only 99¢ per month (plus jexbo receives 5% of whatever the author sells).

"If your workload is slow due to economic changes, there are several things you can do right now as a self-published author to build buzz, sell books online and grow," says Exler. Here are her tips:

* Enter Writing Contests.

There are numerous contests going on at various times of the year for self-published authors. To start, conduct an online search for "writing contests." Here are a few to start with:

You'll get some great exposure if you win. And even if you don't, the contest will give you time to practice and upgrade your writing skills.

* Share Your Personal Experiences and Tips to Sell Books Online.

If you are struggling with economic conditions, share your personal experiences and tips with others via blog entries, social media sites and more. Also, contact various publications and ask to write articles and blog entries at no charge.

You can obtain free publicity and help other self-published authors get through their current career and financial problems.

* Take a Class or Teach Other Self-Published Authors.

With a slower schedule, it may be the perfect time to take a writing or business course to improve your skills. Check your local community center, college, library, and various business associations for educational programs.

You'll improve your writing, meet new friends and learn valuable tips to help boost your attitude and career. And if you can't find a class, offer to teach one. Focus on your area of expertise and share your knowledge with others.

* Network.

Just because things are slow, it's not the time to reduce your networking efforts. In fact, start attending more events and meetings. You'll learn new things, meet interesting people and talk to other writers who can help you discover self-publishing opportunities you may not find on your own.

"Instead of waiting for things to change, use this down-time to prepare for the future," says Exler. "Share your experiences, improve your skills, meet other self-published authors, and enjoy new hobbies. You'll have a more positive attitude, sell more books online and see things start to move in a better direction filled with hope and opportunity!"

I expect the growth in mainstream right wing press is a backlash in some ways to Obama being elected or here in the UK Labour being in power. However Labour these days is almost as left as the Conservative party, it's probably more a backlash against the centralisation of government by the labour party. All the various controls, quangos and laws the government have put in place along perhaps with the rules the EU have added to the ever going list of UK laws and powers.

To film them, I would introduce myself and given enough time they would either accept me, allowing me to get closer to film, or they would reject me and keep me at distance too far to get any good footage. Sometimes it would take hours until I was accepted, but one special time I got onto a mother and calf that I had seen a week earlier, and they welcomed me almost immediately

As a new father, I was especially touched by the baby playing and frolicking. My own daughter Kaila (meaning ‘Ocean’ in Hawaiian) being only seven months old at the time, I almost felt myself inside the mind of the mother humpback. As the baby would near the surface where I was filming or swim within feet of me I would instinctively go to the mother to see her reaction.

This negative, coercive discipline and punishment approach is based on the belief that it is necessary to cause suffering to teach. It's like you need to hurt in order to instruct. The fact of the matter, however, is that people learn better when they feel better, not when they feel worse.
