Are Publishers’ Marketing Packages Really Worth It?

Angela, I’m ready to publish my book now. But, I believe I need a LOT! of help marketing it. I am not at all good on the computer.I don’t know where to get a computer email list of potential buyers, or how to go about comtacting them if I did. Are the marketing packages these other self publishing companies offer really working?

A trusting budding author

Other POD publishers will gladly charge you hundreds to thousands for marketing products and services that, in the vast majority of cases, will never pay for themselves in resulting sales. If these products/services did result in impressive book sales, the POD publishers would be offering them for free. It’s just another way for them to suck money out of authors’ wallets.

My advice is free. A link to my series on online book marketing can be found here.
