3. Create a Google Adwords account. Bid on keywords that potential readers might type into a search engine to find information on the topic that your book covers

4. Advertise your book online with a one-on-one approach by setting up informational and slightly promotional pages on Facebook and Myspace. Make contacts with book clubs, authors, publishers, owners of books stores, etc

5. Join online book clubs, writer’s groups, and community forums. Actively participate in groups that might be interested in your book genre.

7. Create a 30-60 second video book trailer make it look like a movie and market on youtube and all the social media platforms designed to market video. In addition burn it to dvd and show your family, friends and book literary agents.
