    How to sell a bunch of children’s books in a way that bucks conventional wisdom with your host Jonny Andrews. Download PDF Podcast Transcription

    Why you should market to parents when selling children’s books. Decide what your theme is going to be. Screen time before bed is terrible for kids, and that’s why books are a great idea. Why giveaways are a great idea when promoting your children’s book. After connecting, you need to stand out in everyone’s minds. Promote your video content on a page, not a group.

Consistency is key.  Download PDF Podcast Transcription

     Have a common theme and running concept through your book series. Build an audience using other people in your market who connect with your books theme. The days of organic traffic are gone, learn to target with paid ads.

    “What is the theme of your children’s books, and how are you going to promote it to parents?” -Jonny “You can’t just sell the books, you have to get an audience of people who want to buy the books.” “Capture, connect, and convert.”

Facebook looks at what’s in your ad and what’s on the page you’re linking your audience to.  Keep that in mind before running an ad If you have "objectionable content" in your books or on your book page it'll be a good idea to create a "bridge page" between your ad and your "dirty stuff".  You have to get creative about how you talk about erotica just like they did back in the 1950's & 1960's.  It’s normal to get your ad rejected, you often have to appeal for no reason at all.
