Derek Murphy built his email list of 8500+ young adult readers before he published his first novel; since then he’s continued using book giveaways and targeted Facebook ads to reach new readers and grow his list to over 35K.
Along with content marketing strategies that let him reach readers with organic traffic, he’s been able to go from zero to over $8000 a month in book sales (with very little marketing or adspend). These are techniques that work – but few authors are using them well.
