Publisher's Summary

How to sell a ton of books (even if you're starting with no platform).
If you've found this book I'm assuming you have or will soon have a book out on the market, and are exploring ways to turn it into a best-selling powerhouse that will slaughter the competition and pay for your retirement. The indie publishing world is thrilling because of the possible returns, and I hope you and your book do well. You're probably searching for things like "book marketing" and "book promotion" so you can learn how to find an audience and convince it to buy your book. But almost everything you encounter will be wrong.
That's because marketing in general is dead. Advertising is dead. Selling and convincing people to buy: also dead. The new law of book sales is this: if you're talking about your book, promoting your book, sharing your book - you're screwing it all up. Don't make "Old School" marketing mistakes that will sabotage your efforts!
This book will help you to:

Avoid the common mistakes that kill book sales
Set up an author platform quickly that will triple your results
Use Social Media (like an expert) without being annoying
Advertise for maximum impact (at the lowest cost)
Make powerful friends online who can move thousands of books
Before you spend a lot of money on book marketing services or author publicity, make sure you've plugged all the holes in your sales funnel so you're not throwing money away. If you're looking for a "best seller campaign" but don't have a big budget, this book will show you plenty of ways to improve sales without spending a dime.

If you're launching a book, this is great

What made the experience of listening to Book Marketing Is Dead the most enjoyable?

The narrator's voice was a real person talking

Who was your favorite character and why?

The writer himself seems real. Doesn't try to portray himself as overly successful like some entrepreneurs. He uses quotes from a lot of people I admire as well (in a way that makes sense).

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed the whole book. The launch info was what I found the most helpful as I launched my own book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to this book literally 5-6 times in a row.
