Create If Writing

Hosted ByKirsten Oliphant

Create If Writing is a weekly podcast for writers and bloggers dealing with authentic platform building online. You will hear from experts on list-building, connecting through Twitter, and how to utilize Facebook. But tools for building an audience would feel empty without a little inspiration, so these training episodes are balanced with inspirational interviews with writers who share their creative process, ups and downs, and how they have dealt with success or failure.

Kirsten Oliphant is a self-published author with an MFA in Fiction who has been blogging for 11 years and is in the top 20 of Houston's Social Media Power Influencers. She has spoken at Blog Elevated, Houston Social Media Breakfast, Adventure Con, Houston Business Advancement Conference, and Social Media Day Houston. She created the Free Email Course and loves to get nerdy about all things email list.

188 – How to Keep Consistent Book Sales

In this post I’m going to talk about how to keep consistent book sales over time. You might also want to look at my post, Sustaining Your Book Sales… and Yourself, as well as my latest episode about getting a Bookbub ad, which will tie into this information. 

So … you’ve written a book. Congratulations! For real. It’s a big undertaking, and you should be proud of yourself. 

Then you launch the book–time for more celebration! (And if you need a simple launch plan, check out my post on a Simple Launch Framework.) Launching really is hard work. Definitely something to feel good about. 

And then comes the sales slump. 

Or maybe your launch didn’t go BOOM. It just quietly happened … with a handful of sales to show for it. 

How in the world do you sell books and then keep sustaining those book sales over time? Because the reality is this: if you don’t promote, your books will continue to fall in the rankings until they’re just lost in the Amazon (or whatever retailer) store. Let’s talk about how to combat that.
