Some habits are good, some not so good. How can you tell if a habit is good or bad? Good habits are hard to make and easy to break. Bad habits are easy to make and hard to break. Many publishers are in the easy-to-make habit of selling only through bookstores. They market each new title in the same way they did all previous books. While that habit is not inherently bad, it could limit your sales, revenue and profits. Evaluate your habits and seek a different way to increase your sales. Here are Ten Tips For Making Good Marketing Habits.

When some authors come to me for book-marketing help, the often begin by telling me, “There is no other book like mine.” In many cases they are not aware that competitive titles exist. I suggest a search Amazon or the other online stores using their topic as the search argument. Google your topic to see what else is out there. If no other titles exist, perhaps there is no demand for your content. If you wrote The History of the Ballpoint Pen Sharpener, you would probably not find any existing titles since there is not much demand for your content.
In The Power of Habit, Pulitzer Prize-winning business reporter Charles Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. Distilling vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives that take us from the boardrooms of Procter & Gamble to the sidelines of the NFL to the front lines of the civil rights movement, Duhigg presents a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential. At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, being more productive, selling to non-bookstore buyers, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. As Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

“Who is the best book-marketer in the world? It is the one having the most fun.”
The philosopher Epictetus remarked, "What concerns me is not the way things are, but rather the way people think things are." If you think you are creative, you will act that way -- and vice versa. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy. As you think, so you are. Are you creative?
