Just because you’re on the move doesn’t mean you can’t work on your Kindle book. Sure, it is a little more tricky, but just imagine how much further along you could be with your Kindle book if you could unlock some of the travel time and use it to write.
In this article, I’m going to break down the main ways you can get more of your Kindle book down when you’re on the move.
1. Identify Your Target Publications.
The first thing you need to do is to identify a handful of online publications that you believe to have an audience that is similar to the target market of your book. You can find these publications via Google searches, blog directories and asking your own audience which blogs they often visit.
2. Come Up With Unique Content Angles For Each Target Publication.
Once you have identified a handful of target publications, the next thing you need to do is take a look at the content on each of the target publications, both the topics/subjects they cover but also the tone and style of the content.
Once you have done this, then it’s time to come up with at least two unique content ideas/angles for each of the publication. Each content idea/angle should be of the topic and style/tone that is suited to that particular publication.
3. Pitch The Target Publications.
Once you have at least two unique and tailored content angles per publication, then it’s time to craft a unique, relevant, compelling and persuasive pitch to the relevant person at that publication, presenting your two suggestions.
4. Have Your Piece Written And Published.
If all goes well, you should have some of the publications get back to you interested in you writing a guest post blog post on one of the two ideas/angles you suggested or they may propose you write something else that is of interest to them that you did not suggest.
Remember, often when you secure a guest post on a publication that you are not paying for then it usually can’t be entirely promotional, however, most publications will allow you to mention the thing you are interested in promoting as part of the guest post as long as it is not the sole focal point of the post.
So, we recommend you spend special time and effort to find clever and unique ways of educating and persuading people to check out your Kindle book within the guest post without it appearing overly commercial.
5. Monitor The Results.
Once you have one or more guest posts published and live, pay close attention to how they impact sales. We highly recommend you reach out to customers and ask them how they heard about your Kindle book.
You may notice that a larger proportion of buyers are coming from one specific guest post on one specific site. In this case we would you encourage to reach out to this publication to explore other ways you can work with them to maximise your sales from this publication.
6. Thank The Publications.
It is very important that you thank the publications that decline your guest post proposition as well as the ones that accept. Thanking the ones that don’t accept in a genuine, authentic manner ensures you leave a good impression on them.
You will be surprised at the future results if you do so. It is not uncommon for publications to get back to authors that they have declined to guest post on their publication weeks and sometimes even months later when a relevant opportunity arises, assuming they left a good impression on the publication.
