I had a successful stint doing online marketing back in the old days. Now that my book is out ( C++ Cookbook ) I find myself thinking like a marketing pro again.
For fun I wrote a 10 page article about online marketing with regards specifically to books, and I am wondering where to go from here. It is very minimalist, so I could easily swell that up to a couple of hundred pages. The question is, do I try an pitch a “Book Marketing Hacks” book? Or perhaps an eBook? Should I go independant, or stay with O’Reilly? Should I make a series of articles? Or perhaps an entire column?
My question then specifically is this: would you buy a book about marketing books online, or would you prefer something more general, and what format would you like to see such a book? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
So do you want me to tell you how to sell more books?
