Yesterday, I went to the Hanover Book Festival. It was a great experience. I attended two workshops . The first was on internet marketing by Jason Jacobs ( ). He discussed how to maximize the use of your website to help market your book.

Here are his main points. Consider the purpose of your website. A successful website has three purposes:

A. Conversion: What do you want the visitor to do? Make it obvious and easy.

B. Community:

  1. Hub for your followers
  2. Exclusive content
  3. Build your email list

C. Communication

  1. News and updates
  2. Blogs (with useful content)

Email list:

  1. Build it with people who want to hear from you
  2. Usually sign up to receive a free offer
  3. Keep a relationship going


  1. Publish links to posts
  2. Engage with fans
  3. Drive people to your site
  4. Find groups in your niche


  • Tweet links to your posts
