[Linkage] M is for Marketing

Note: My A-Z theme is linkage. Every day (at 7:00 a.m. EST), I'm going to list three helpful industry links per letter, and then I'll ask for suggestions in the comments—that way, we can pool our resources! :)
M is for Marketing:

What's your favorite source for book marketing info?

Good stuff as always, Carrie. Thanks!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I've heard of Seth Godin, but I've never actually checked out his blog. How sad is that???

Thanks for the links, Carrie.

Dani said...

I'll take all the tips I can get!

Michael Di Gesu said...

Sorry, Muir's book didn't work for you. But, if you suggest it, there must be some info that is helpful.

Thanks for the links, Carrie.

Melissa said...

Thanks to your AtoZ theme, I've got a major 'organize my bookmarks' session on my To-Do list when April is over. :P

More great links. Thanks!

Clare said...

Bookmarking these, they seem like excellent resources. :D

Julie Luek said...

So much on marketing it can almost be overwhelming. Godin is very good.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Yeah I definitely need marketing advice.

Carrie Butler said...

Don't worry. I was just poking fun at the claim in the title. :)

No problem!

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Jeff! :D

Elizabeth Seckman said...

Marketing should be a four letter word!

Donna K. Weaver said...

Yeah. THE thing that terrifies me.

ilima said...

Nancy Thompson said...

God knows I could use the marketing help!

I can't believe you're doing the A-Z with your book release and everything going on! Amazing. And fab post. You seriously ROCK, Carrie.

:D

E.J. Wesley said...

Ah yes, Marketing, my mortal enemy--we meet again! *draws sword* En garde!

Carrie Butler said...

You should! The man is brilliant. :)

No problem!

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Dani! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Me too! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Well, you know me, always adding to your workload...

Speaking of which, incoming chapters! ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Great! I hope they help, Clare. :D

Carrie Butler said...

Absolutely. We just have to focus on one step at a time. :)

Carrie Butler said...

L-O-V-E?

Though, I might be in the minority on that opinion... LOL

Carrie Butler said...

Plenty of advice in those links! I think you'll really enjoy them. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Aww... don't be scared, Donna. Marketing can be fun. You're building an experience around your novel! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Perfect! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Ask and ye shall receive. ;)

Carrie Butler said...

I can't believe it, either! LOL I got a little overly ambitious this time...

Thanks, Morgan! :)

Carrie Butler said...

No, don't! *throws self in front of marketing* I love it!

Mark Means said...

I'm not to this stage yet (I'm still at 'finishing the dern thing'), but these look to be great resources.

Nice! :)

Thanks again, just had a read of one of Seth Godin's posts and his opinion backs up something I wrote recently about promotion.Thanks!

Carrie Butler said...

That's perfect! Nothing like being backed up by Mr. Godin. :) You're welcome!
