Hello to the eBookBetty author community!

Marketing Strategy: Continuous Ad Recycling
There are dozens of other sites out there that offer the same service as eBookBetty. Why should I use you? What makes you different?

We hear that question all the time, and the honest answer is: not all that much. We like to think we’re a little more consistent, our newsletter maybe a little more visually appealing, but in the end the comparison is really apples to apples.

So why use us? Why use any of the others, for that matter? Because your book (and your name! Don’t forget, as an author you are a brand!) needs to be seen as consistently as possible. Frequency and repetition build trust, and trust builds loyalty–and there is nothing more compelling to a consumer than brand loyalty. The next book you write might be a real stinker, but if readers already know your name they just might buy it anyway even if they’ve never read your other books, simply because you’ve made yourself so visible, so accessible. The same philosophy as Starbucks and McDonald’s.

I’m sure we don’t have to tell you that there aren’t a lot of economical advertising options out there for authors, especially ones that yield tangible results. But mailing lists do work–we know, because we watch our own analytics every day.

So our advice to you: use our competitors, and use them repetitively because every service like ours is always growing our lists, finding new customers for you. We recommend a continuous loop. hitting your most effective advertisers once every six months in even intervals. More if you have multiple titles. Should we be worried if you spend your hard-earned ad dollars somewhere else and get good results? Nah– we’re confident in our product and, truly, the reason our service was created was to help authors just like you. We want you to succeed. We want the industry to grow.

Our view; we’d rather help keep your book in the Top 100 all year long with consistent sales than see it hit #1 once.
