In this show I talk to Jay Baer about how to handle reviews. Jay Baer is an international speaker and author of multiple books about marketing and customer service. It is a real honour to have him on the show. I saw him speak about the concepts behind his book Hug Your Haters at Social Media Marketing World 2015 and was blown away. It’s been a long process to get him on the show, but his contrarian views on how to handle reviews for books, backed up by research, meant that I hope you will agree it was worth the wait!
It’s been a while since I had a look at the Reedsy Book Editor (in my episode on 17th February) and I’d thought I’d re-examine it and update you on the progress on the product. I did slightly rush to review it when it came out so I think it is only fair that I do a brief show every now and then to see how they are progressing with it.
In this show I talk about something that I have been wondering about lately. How do you revive sales in a book that doesn’t sell? I’ve recently finished the second book in my Magpies and Magic fantasy series. The issue I have before I get into the process of releasing the new book is what to do about the first book in the series, that just doesn’t sell.
In this episode I talk about book reviews – why they are important, how you can get them and why not to be too bothered when you don’t get good reviews.
