I am the head-honcho over at Zbooks.co where I show people how to become PROFITABLE independent authors. One of my KEY achievements is to teach people to be profitable with all FREE tools and resources. No expensive software required!
I have been teaching independent authors to make their books and MARKET them for over 2 years. Also run one of the most interesting Podcasts and Blogs on the subject: www.Zbooks.co
1.) Facebook Ads are still the number one way to reach out to "hyper targeted" cold prospects and get them on your
2.) mailing list. Because Email marketing is the number one way to "market" ..period.
3.) Influencer marketing, or better said outreach, is the fastest way to the top, but not possible for beginners. So I would concentrate on developing relationships with influencers for later launches of your better more polished books.
