Sell Sheets: A Guide For New Self-Publishers

Sell Sheet Example

Sell Sheet Example

What Is A Sell Sheet?
A sell sheet (sometimes called a “one-sheet” or a “tip-sheet”) is a one-sheet flyer that promotes a book and its author. The major point of a sell sheet is to convey your book’s benefits in a short and concise manner. It is used to help you market your book directly to book buyers. It is not a press release. You should use it to promote and sell your book to retailers, wholesalers, and even consumers. You should also include your sell sheet in your book’s media kit so that news media, book reviewers, and book store retailers can have specific details about your book and your marketing plans. Remember, a press release should focus on the news that you or your book is making. The press release is a way to share information and is saying, “Hey, look at me, I have some news-worthy information to share with you.” Conversely, a sell sheet is more of an announcement that your book is out and available. The sell sheet is saying, “Hey, look at me, I have published a new book and I want you to buy it. Here is all the information that you need to know before buying my book.” Continue reading

Direct Mail Marketing For The Self-Publisher

When it comes to marketing your self-published book, there are a number of options open to you. One of the most ignored marketing methods at your disposal is direct mail marketing.
