    The mailing list providers mentioned in the post – MailChimp and Aweber – are probably the two leading companies in the market

    But most self-published authors will probably prefer MailChimp. The interface is easier to use and it’s free for the first 2,000 subscribers.

    I do accept as true with all of the concepts you’ve presented on your post. They are really convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for novices. May just you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.

    That’s all well and good. However the single most important piece of information necessary to making this all work is missing.

    How do you reach potential book buyers and get them to opt in?

    Still, all good advice.

    Thanks.

      Great comment, Michael. The typical missing link in most indie-publishing marketing advice? How to find buyers of new authors. The answer is mostly reviews but that’s not enough–someone has to write them and someone has to read them. Of course established authors have that advantage–they are known to someone.

      Here is a link to this site from today. I’m looking for someone to market my book while I write the next one. Good reviews, 32 reviews–4 star average–have not been sufficient and I cannot bear to swap inanities for hours on end to establish a Twitter “presence.”

      I have a web site, a blog, a twitter account, a face book account (2) la,la,la. I will happily give up significant income to someone who knows how to reach beyond my readers to the type of readers who will like my book. The reviewers give clear indicators of who they might be. I just don’t know how to reach them.

      And good luck to both of us.
