Christian Book Marketing Blog Hops

If you are a Christian author that has tried or is thinking about trying the self marketing route and using Christian blog hops and sites that offer Christian blog hops. Be careful which blog hop that you use.

For those of you that do not know what a blog hop is. It is a group of bloggers that have agreed to post an article about your book on their site through a third party. How it works is that there are sites out there that offer to review your book and then post it on 25 sites or so. They charge you for the review ( which is ok  ) and then send your book review to 25 blog owners for posting.

This might sound like a great idea and in some cases may be. However, I have reviewed many of these services and found the following negatives.

  • Many of the blogs that have agreed to post the authors book review, do not, as while you find one author's book review on some of the sites in the list, it does not appear on others.
  • Many of these bloggers have blogs with very poor layout. They just don't look good at all or thy are incomplete.
  • Many of the blogs have little content on them and very spuratic content on them which is a negative when it comes to readership and online presence.
  • Appearance. People are visual and especially with online content. If the sites doesn't look good, it will make your book look the same.
  • Many of the sites are everyday any type sites or blogs, Just a site or blog that someone created and agreed to post content on for the sake of posting content.
  • Association. When you allow just anyone to post a review or article about your book it then becomes associated to all the content on the site or blog. This is important to consider. 
Yet overall in examining the sites, it is the layout, design and content that is the negative. You might ask why? 
  • It is important that you promote your book on sites and blogs that are Christian in nature.
  • The sites or blogs that you promote your book on should be sites of integrity, well laid out and sites that promote your book professionally.
  •  Content. Content is king when it comes to building a readership, unique visitors, return visitors, page ranking, SEO and simply providing your readership with content that keeps them reading and coming back for more.
  • Promoting your book on sites and blogs that also share other Christian books, materials, articles, ministries and the likes, is a must.
There are many other factors to take into considerations when using a blog hop to promote your book. So do your homework before allowing just anyone to promote your book or use an article about your book just to post content on their site or blog. Free marketing and cheap marketing might sound good, however, it can do more damage than good.

Marketing Your Self Published Christian Book

Christian Book Marketing is essential for every self published Christian Author. Once you have published your book and it is available online, it is important to tap into the Christian Marketplace. The marketing of your book is just as important as writing and publishing it. 

Many times an author will purchase a high end publishing package with all the bells and whistles and once their book is published and the publisher does some basic marketing. The author soon finds themselves wondering why they are not selling any books. Yes, I said "any books".

We hear it all the time. Author come to us sharing that they purchased the bronze, silver or gold publishing package paying any where from $2,000.00 to $4,500.00 and 3, 4, 5 and 6 months have gone by and they haven't sold any books. That includes on Amazon also. 

Without a rock solid marketing package that tackles your Christian book marketing needs from all sides, you will soon find months and months go by and your high end $4,000.00 book package has left you high and dry and with no book sales. 

Before you spend an arm and a leg on a Christian Publishing Package with all the ad ons and check marks. Do your homework and contact the people at CBM Christian Book Marketing. They can help you with every aspect of your book marketing needs including self publishing and you wont be spending an arm and a leg.

Amazon, Kindle Book Sales - Showcase Your Book

Many times, authors believe that once they publish their book and it's listed on Amazon and at other online bookstores, that they will automatically start selling books. Rarely happens.

Once again, it rarely happens.

This is why it is important to promote your new book release, your Amazon page, Kindle book page, Barnes and Noble page, Author's site and other. Creating book buzz it very important. Creating an expanded online presence is a must for every author.

Divine Hope - The Lord Is My Helper

Hebrews 13:6 So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”   Divine hope enables you to boldly proclaim you do not have to fear, because the Lord is your helper. You might be facing mountainous obstacles, such as poor health, lack of finances to meet pressing needs, but you don’t have to be afraid, when you are expecting the Lord to meet them. When people are attacking you, don’t be afraid, if your confidence is in the Lord. Instead of looking at the need, look to the One who can solve the problem, and wants to help you. Fill your spirit with the promises of God that show He wants to meet the need, and then expect Him to honor His Word in your life.

Training In The Christian Faith

Sound doctrine and key foundational principles make this workbook a basic guide into understanding scriptural truths represented in the Bible, creating a firm Biblical foundation to build upon.  

Fundamental in nature, these principles build faith and instruct new and mature believers alike with a broad knowledge of the many fundamentals and facets of the Gospel. Confusion is laid aside and a deep appreciation for all that Christ has done for us will arise.

Author, speaker, and Bible instructor, Craig T. Feigh, presents Christian Basic Training: The Basic Foundational Principles of the Christian Faith ~ Simple, Biblical and Foundational, this comprehensive Bible Study workbook is an easy-to-use guide that has been developed specifically for Christians to better understand the basics of their Christian faith.

America is a Christian nation, founded on Christian principles, yet alarming statistics (as represented by a recent ABC poll) reveal that, “. . .89% of Americans (267 million) claim to believe in God, yet 66% of those (200 million) doubt that they will ever get to Heaven!” 

Within this statistic, Feigh sheds light on the increasing need for Christians to understand basic principles that are foundational to the Christian faith.

Recommended as a Study Guide for individual instruction or within a group setting, each short chapter addresses many of the questions that one might have regarding eternal life, salvation, sin, the heavenly realm, angels, demons, the Fall, Adam and Eve, the righteousness of God, sanctification and so much more. At the end of each chapter is a short quiz that has been designed to help readers remember the key points of each section. ~ Christian Basic Training by Craig T. Feigh

Overcoming Deep Sorrow and Pain

Life has it's way pf chipping away at us. As an adult it amazes me the things that we go through growing up as a child and into our teenage and adult years. 

When I look back over the years, I see things that just made no sense at the time. Situations, circumstances, deep hurts, loss and down right confusing issues at times.

Her is one author's story of her life and the things that she encountered.  It Was Not My Fault! All the Glory to God by Rachel Lee White is a faith-filled and unique book of prayers bringing to light her own experiences that relays the message to readers in that we over come by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony.

This book offers hope to others that as the author notes from Creflo Dollar as famously spoke, “Your past does not determine your future.”

From Early Childhood, to Young Adulthood, and Middle Adulthood to Present Day that are designed to relate to God. Readers will find this book an inspiration as to how to know and draw near to our Father in Heaven through the connection of prayer.

Born out of much grief, her story is heartbreaking as she was orphaned at the age of 10 by violence that penetrated her home through her father who wounded her mother, which led to her death and his eventual suicide. Raised by her grandmother, the chronic grief opened unwanted “drama” in the author’s life. Finding herself with 2 babies and homeless by the age of 18, she was persuaded by Child Services to give her children to Foster Care, and soon followed their adoption.

Applying the beauty of the truth of God’s Word, this book comes highly recommended as an inspirational tool to young adults (especially young teenage girls) that need to understand that nothing is their fault (as the title denotes) and that God is able to complete the work He has begun. 

An amazing short prayer testimonial filled with Scriptural and foundational truths that renew the mind that will catapult readers towards thankfulness and the amazing love and grace of God. You may get your copy of It Was Not My Fault! All the Glory to God at Amazon or in Kindle. You may visit Rachel at her website, The Disciples of the Blood of the Lamb for more information and some great ministry.

CBM Christian Book Marketing is eager to help, encouraging, and easy to work with. ~ Christian Author Lila Senter

After the release of my first book, Put Away Childish Things, I found that writing the book was the easy part. The challenge came as I began to spread the word about the book beyond my circle of friends. CBM Christian Book Marketing provided a degree of expertise in the field that I did not possess. Their contacts in the industry proved helpful in creating a broader presence in the Christian marketplace. When I released The Chase I came immediately to CBM to take advantage of their insight and knowledge to help me gain exposure much earlier in my sales process.  "Smitty and others seem to care sincerely about my success. I'm grateful for the relationship and the positive impact CBM has already made on my sales. If you get a chance to work with them, I think you will find it an overwhelmingly positive experience. ~ Dr. Kirk Lewis

The Importance Of Book Marketing Within The Publishing Process

Publishing a Christian book is a huge task. I'm sure that most authors would agree that writing the book is the fun part. Then comes book editing, proofreading, interior book design, layout, the print ready file, book cover design and getting your work into print or eBook form.

Yet there is another part of the equation that is just as important as all the above and something that should be well thought out and put into motion prior to publishing and releasing your new title. 

Christian Book Marketing is essential for every authors that has the desire to get the word out about their new book release.

Many times authors will wait until their books are published and available to pursue a book marketing plan. This is a huge mistake simply because it takes time to put a marketing plan in order and into motion. Consider the following:
The above are just a few of the things that every author needs to put into place and into motion prior to their book being released, as their book is being released and as follow up marketing after their book hits the marketing.

If you are getting ready to publish a book or have just released one, contact Smitty at CBM Christian Book Marketing at kingdomexpansion1 ( at ) gmail ( dot ) com 

Don't wait until it's too late to put your marketing plan into place. It can make all the difference in the world when it comes to book sales.

Christian Book Marketing, Book Signing Information

Christian Book Signings

Book signings are by far the best way to open the door with regards to making a connection with a Church or Bookstore and especially for the first time author. Book signings are personal, upfront and book store customers really like visiting a book signing table, meeting an author and getting a signed copy of their book. This is good for the bookstore also, as it adds something of interest for it's customers. 

Getting Started

Send a letter of introduction that shares about you as author and your book.
Request a book signing event at the church or bookstore.
Offer to donate a portion of the book sales to the church, church youth group or other inner church ministry. 
For bookstores, offer to either give a percentage to the bookstore, or donate a percentage to a local charity of their choice. 

Have a raffle for a few free books. Make the event fun.
Perform follow up communications by phone.

From experience helping authors in the past set up book signings at local churches and bookstores, the average sales per event averaged 200 to 300 books. Considering the profit margin on the book sales was right at $7.00 00 to $9.00 per author purchased copy, that's not a bad payday for talking with others in Christ, sharing views and signing books.

This further promotes you as a local author. Once you get your first book signing under your belt at a local church or bookstore. It gives you the ability to share that with other potential bookstore managers or churches. 

Take pictures of your first event so that you can add such to your author media package or scrapbook. Ask the local church or bookstore manager of your first event if you can use them as a reference when the book event concludes. A successful book signing event recommendation just adds to your portfolio. 

First Steps

First you need some sort of media package that you can send either by email or through the mail services. Your media package should be as follows:

A professionally detailed letter of introduction and request for a book signing.
A professionally written Press Release that carries a name of Integrity within the Christian Book Industry.

* Contact me for further information on creating a more professional media package.

You can get very detailed in creating a Author's Media Package; however, don't let that intimidate you. A simple Author's Media Package can open a door just as much as an extravagant Author's Media Package can.

Sending The Author's Media Package

Through the postal services.
By email.
In person. ( For local churches in the area, you might consider making contact in person. If your budget permits offer a free copy of your book to the person that you speak with. 

Who Do I Contact At The Church Or Local Christian Bookstore?

Address your letter of introduction to the Senior Pastor of the church. This will insure that either the Senior Pastor received the media package or that it will be placed in the right hands. Most Senior Pastors have secretaries that process incoming mail for the Senior Pastor. Therefore, it should get into the right hands.

The Bookstore Manager at your local bookstore.

My First Book Signing - Promote It.

Yes, with the church or bookstores' permission and some local newspapers and radio stations will run the announcement for free. Simply contact your local newspaper of Christian radio station and ask.

The Follow Up

Within 7 days to 10 working days of sending the Author's Media Package to the local churches in your area ( you can determine how many miles you are willing to travel ). The next step would be to follow up with a personal phone call and perform some follow up with regards to the media package that you sent. This of course is only necessary if the church has yet to contact you.

Building Your Online Presence. A Must

In presenting yourself as a Christian author, it is also recommended that you build a professional online presence in having an author's site. Within this, you can share the site address in your corresponding letters and Media Package. This provides the person that you are making contact with the option to visit your author's site and find out more about you as author and your book.

My Book Signing Day

Every authors situation is different. However, in a nut shell your book signing table and display is very important. Contact us by email and we will send you some basic information on how to create a great book signing display that will fit into your budget.

Contact CBM Christian Book Marketing for further information about your Author's Media Package. Contact me by email and I will answer any questions that you may have.

Christian Author Lynnie Lang 

My Testimonial of the wonderful assistance received from CBM I guess I would begin with the surprising email I received from Smitty. It felt personal and to the point. I had two books already published, yet was at a standstill on what and how to do anything else with them. I had many questions, fears, apprehensions, and doubts about doing anything online. Never mind not knowing how to do marketing or distributing was definitely holding me back! Smitty was patient with me, and simply and precisely explained each step to be taken to introduce me as a Christian Author. He not only answered all my questions, but relieved all anxieties; and I began to experience an excitement I thought I would never get back again! Thank you, Smitty, for your encouragement and patiently helping me take the next steps. ~ God bless you and CBM.
