Sharing Favorite Newsletter Tip for Authors

This tip is from the (New!) 2nd Edition of The Frugal Book Promoter: Yep, that new book is coming in just a few days. But here's the tip.

Reexamine the keywords you use when you market on the Web. Some work better than others. You may be missing one that doesn’t have much competition so when someone uses it (and that someone should be you!), your blog, Web site, article, or book appears nearer the top of a reader’s search page. To do that, use Google’s Keyword tool. You’ll find it on the list of your free Google Account’s homepage.

And, if you want a whole newsletter with tips like this on marketing, some one editing and a few on the craft of writing, send me an e-mail with SUBSCRIBE in the subject line and I'll take care of it for you.
