It’s the time of year people start to think about New Year’s Resolutions. Even if you don’t make New Year’s resolutions, the end of a year is a great time to reflect on what you have done the previous year and what you want to improve on in the coming year.
For authors and publishers, reflecting on what you have accomplished in writing, publishing, and marketing is important. Now is the time to start setting goals in these areas are for 2019.
If marketing is an area that you have found yourself becoming lax in, then resolve to do better in 2019. To build an audience for your books, strive to engage in marketing activities on a daily basis. A constant drip of marketing activities will add up, much like a dripping faucet eventually fills the sink.
Following are 10 book marketing activities that you can do every day.
Don’t be intimated or overwhelmed with the idea of marketing. Strive to do a little each day.

Marketing is any activity that brings attention to your books. Marketing activities focus on creating, keeping, and satisfying customers. You must engage in marketing activities to spread the word about your book so that people will know it exists. After all, people cannot buy something they don’t know exists.
