    One thought on “How I Sold 80,000 Books: Book Marketing for Authors”

    1. This is a great book - I read it in one session but I know that I will keep going back to it over and over again as a reference book in months to come. It is so hard to get one's books noticed at all, and there is a wealth of information in here to work through and try. Can I write in my review that the advice in here works? No - it might be a year or even five years from now before I have tried everything suggested and can give any kind of confirmation of that. What I can say is that there is a [...]

    2. Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This book has good information, but none of it was new (to me, anyway). It's an easy, quick read, and if you've never done any marketing research for how to sell your book, this is a good start. I have to say I was hoping for something more--maybe I'm being a bit lazy here in wishing for an itemized list of steps or more in-depth tricks on how to get setup on some of the resources--but it felt more like a "here's a bunch [...]

    3. The only thing harder than writing a good book is selling it. I always enjoy learning from what other authors are doing to create their own marketing plans in this ever-evolving digital marketplace we're in. Children's author Rutkowska shares a solid game plan for getting your marketing started and your books selling. I picked several new tips I want to try, including some hacks.

    4. This is an excellent read for beginning or established Indie writers. The most informative section is the listing of author fairs, writing contest and of course, her site librarybub. Seldom do I sign up or pay for a promotional add, but after researching her librarybub site, I have nothing to lose and the price is extremely affordable. Highly recommend this work! Four stars

    5. Insightful. Immediate. Inspiring. For authors who are new to selling their books, this book is a good hit. For authors--like myself--who have been around the block with marketing books ad nauseam, this book offers handy tips, clean perspectives, and nuggets of wisdom. I especially like that it wasn’t full of chapter after chapter of 10-step instructions like many of the marketing books written by “marketing experts” who repeat the stale ol’ honkings--and know nothing about being a writer [...]

    6. 3.5 stars. A great primer on all that self-publishing entails re: marketing, but the title is slightly misleading as the author never gives an exact plan of how she sold 80,000 books or if it is for one title or her whole backlist. Also it isn't 100% clear if she means paper and ebook sales combined. That said, this book still gave me some great ideas of things to look into for my own marketing and is worth skimming at least for indie authors. Read it for a general overview of marketing for auth [...]

    7. A lot of practical adviceThere are many books on how to sell books online. This one separates itself by the number: 80,000, that's a lot!Does it deliver? In many ways, it does. It has a ton of practical advice, some is decidedly better and more relevant than others, some seems very superficial, and could have been covered in much more detail. Also the interview section at the end of the book takes up a too large part of the book, almost 20%.

    8. At first I thought this was just going to be another one of those books telling the same things over and over again. In a way it was, but this author also included pages of writing contests, places to get reviews, and other information that is quite helpful. I'm sure I'll be referring back to several pages as I work on marketing my own books.

    9. I grabbed this free book off of NoiseTrade because at the time of writing, I'm a few months away from finishing a non-fiction book myself naturally the title caught my interest.The book is a 54 page pdf. It is very straightforward and not drawn out. That means there's a lot of useful info packed into a short space. This is a book I will revisit closer to publishing time.

    10. Packed with tipsA good quick read full of tips and tricks for specifically new authors. This book would have been nice to have back when I first published in early 2013. Even still, I learned a few things I hadn't thought about.

    11. Many great ideas that will be helpful to authors. This book will clearly state this is not a get rich quick scheme, be prepared to work.

    12. How she sold 80,000 book seems to consist mostly of getting a contract with cruise lines for her children's book set on cruises--not super applicable to me. But there are also some good ideas that are more universally useful.Notes:Yellow highlight | Page: 33 Advantage (amazon/gp/seller-acco) <- this is apparently how people get books on that aren't traditionally published or produced by one of the normal indie channelsYellow highlight | Page: 37the best way for both you and your fans is to s [...]

    13. I got my copy from NoiseTrade. I'd hoped to pick up some new tips, but didn't really learn anything.If you're really new to self-publishing, there is some useful information, but do your own research as well.At one point the author endorses the idea of review swapping, but this is actually against 's terms of service and could get the authors involved in trouble.She talks about making books permafree on by publishing on another platform, making it free there, then asking to price match, when t [...]

    14. An excellent step by step for writers who are entering the confusing world of Independent writing (Indie). There is some very good information here, as well as some excellent interviews with authors who have made a living in the world of Indie writingI would recommend this book and the steps in it for all authors who are setting out to write independently, however, you have to realize that there is a massive amount of work in the writing, editing, and self-publishing. The book does touch on that [...]

    15. What's happening here is basically a tutorial on the four P's of marketing structured towards writers, authors, and anyone else interested in writing a book. It does not cover the actual writing of the book, though it does cover Product as polishing the draft, and getting it edited professionally, the cover done well, and so on. This is not a tutorial on writing it, just making it publishing ready. Place, Price, and Promotion are covered in equal detail giving explanations for offline and online [...]

    16. I have been self publishing books for 10 years. This book gave me a plethora of additional ideas to market my book including new online places to promote them. Additionally, I learned how to get more reviews, and which award contests to enter. Alinka's book included inspiring stories from authors and all that they accomplished. How I Sold 80,00 Books teaches you how to make money on the books and not just how to get your books to bestseller status. I can't wait to try some of the ways.

    17. This is, by far, one of the clearest and most concise books on book marketing, especially pre-launch. Alinka shares step-by-step how she launched one of her books with 100 reviews. It wasn't an easy process, but to get to 80,000 copies, it takes work. I would recommend this book to any author who is publishing either traditionally or indie. It's going to be helpful to anyone who calls themselves a writer!

    18. Great insight about book industry! Felt more like I was reading some college notes. No nonsense and only must know points jotted down in a systematic way. I never knew the effort that goes into publishing a book and more importantly marketing it. Though it may not be completely relevant after some time, it tells you how one can make best use of technology and social media.

    19. Excellent content!I certainly wasn't expecting much from a free book on , but this book was well-written, had useful information, and helped me to know how to plan for success. I highly recommend this book.

    20. Better written and more useful and most books of this type. Probably best for nonfiction authors, although I will probably come back to it a number of times. Of the five interviews at the end of the book, I liked only the one with Mark Dawson.

    21. This helped me gain a better understanding of the marketing process and a good review for the points I already knew.

    22. Lots of good tipsThis book has marketing tips, contests, published author interviews and so much more. Great book. She also has additional tips on her website.

    23. This is a very good book with lots of information on how to market your book. I look forward to trying the things she recommended.

    24. Alinka Rutkowska has written an easy-to-read, short ebook about publishing. Her upbeat tone kept me moving through the copy, much of the book was "flip through" material. It's really not about how she sold 80,000 books, but how you can get your book some attention by following her Four Ps: product, place, price, and promotion. The subtitle, "Book Marketing for Authors," is really what she writes about. Her largest chapter from the Four Ps is Promotion because, as she writes, "you now have to pro [...]

    25. This is a lot of information in a short, entertaining book.I'm not a writer, but I read a lot of books and most of them are by indie authors. Many self-published authors are writing about a personal experience or a difficulty which they have faced. Most of them are writing simply with the idea of helping others. If one person reads their book and is helped or comforted, they consider it worth the effort. If you fall into this category, you don't need to worry about marketing. Just finish the boo [...]

    26. Disclaimer: Alinka Rutkowska emailed me a copy of her book in exchange for this review.I typically dislike small eBooks because often they aren’t well written or formatted. Alinka Rutlowska’s book, How I Sold 80,000 Books, is an exception to my rule. This slim book takes only 30 minutes to read but it is jam-packed with useful information any author can apply to their publishing process. Rutkowska hooked me from the start when she reminds the reader that not everyone will have the same succe [...]

    27. I have brought a few books about book marketing recently and this one did not disappoint, and didn't rehash a lot of what I had already read. For a free book I don't know what more you could realistically ask for.In the same way that buying a guide to Mount Snowdon doesn't mean you can claim you have walked up it; this is not a step by step guide on how to sell 80,000 books. What it does do is explain the authors experience and how she managed to sell 80,000 books, and advice you on some of her [...]

    28. This book is an exhaustive list of pretty much every idea on how to sell your self-published book. Exhaustion might also be the right word. At multiple points while reading I was utterly overwhelmed. It's joy a bad thing to have every idea put in front of you, which I why I'm giving three stars and. It less, but my mind felt cluttered which I do not think it a benefit to book marketing. The author does touch on the 80/20 principle that focusing on what produces the most results is what you shoul [...]
