-Five concepts that will guarantee your book marketing is successful in the long run. If you build it, they will come.

-Why the SMART marketing acronym is more than just a slick slogan.

-Why sustainable marketing is key–what it is and is not.

-Is your marketing manageable or is it overtaking your life?

-Nobody writes a book for everybody. Your marketing needs to be audience-specific.

-Why tactics come after the strategy–and why many of us confuse the two.

-Always weigh the why before you use a tactic.

-Facebook and Instagram are not strategies–they are tactics. Don’t shoot at a target blindfolded. Tactics-last, strategy-first.
