The traditional method of selling books is fading away and the untapped wealth of social networking is growing But many authors don't touch this massive money making niche! Now you can sell more books than you ever thought possible. The easiest way to becoming a best-selling author is to follow the tips in this easy-to-read and eye-opening book.

The traditional method of selling books is fading away and the untapped wealth of social networking is growing But many authors don't touch this massive money making niche! Now you can sell more books than you ever thought possible.  The easiest way to becoming a best-selling author is to follow the tips in this easy-to-read and eye-opening book.

     This book will teach you how to:

   - Earn money by selling books through social networking sites (Facebook,   
      MySpace, Twitter , Technorati, Xanga, Squidoo, and dozens more).
   - Create a money making website for your book (without being a tech- guru).
   - Take advantage of free tools for authors that will skyrocket your book sales.
   - Connect with customers to convert one sale into three.
   - And much more...

It's time to turn your book into a residual money making machine. This book pays for itself! By following the lessons learned in this book, you can drastically increase your book sales. 

Excerpt
Congratulations, you are an author! Now what? No one told you that selling your book would be so difficult. The fact that you are an author with a completed book puts you in a small percentage of people who always wanted to write a book. It puts you in an even smaller percentage because most people who start to write a book, never finish. But here you are, at the percentage of people who wrote a book but realized how difficult it was to actually sell enough of them to turn a significant profit. Most authors only sell a few hundred books at most. The shelf life of a book lasts about as long as a Hollywood marriage, 4 to 6 months. After reading this book, you are going to be armed with the knowledge to be in the small percentage of authors who can live off the income of their books. Successful authors know that writing a book is an incredible source of residual income. With the advent of social networking and the countless free technological tools available, an author can now increase his/her profit margin substantially.

The intent of this book is not to show you how to write a book or to help you decide whether you should use a publisher or choose the self-publishing route. This book is intended to help you increase your book sales. Whether you have sold one copy or a few thousand, there is always an opportunity to sell books. This book will show you how to use the technological tools available on the Internet and social networking websites to sell more books than you ever thought possible. This book will also show you how to market your book effectively without spending a fortune.

This book will pay for itself a thousand times over. For the small price of this book, you can substantially increase your book sales and profit margins. After reading this book, you will be so grateful for your potential new found fortune, you might feel the need to send me cash in the mail. That is a nice thought and I thank you in advance, but please do not do that. You can thank me by putting a kind review on the Internet. I do not want you to mistake this book for a get rich quick scheme. As the old saying goes, you can lead a horse to water, but you can not force him to drink. You can do two things with this book:

1) You can read this book and think, “Wow, this was a very well written book, I’m glad I read it”, and put it on your dusty bookshelf never to open it again, or

2) You can read this book and think, “Wow, this was a very well written book, I’m glad I read it”, and apply the principles and ideas in this book and use it to get wealthy.

I will leave the decision up to you.

WOW- So many tools and strategies!,
Mike,
I finished your book Social Networking for Authors-Untapped Possibilities for Wealth and am amazed at all the resources you provided! I never new these tools existed. The fact that these tools exist and that they are free will certainly keep me ahead of the masses. Thank you for sharing this priceless information- I look forward to leveraging it over and over again. Lastly, Thank you for your service to our country.

AuthorsDen Review by Glenda Bixler
Social Networking for Authors:

Michael Volkin “practices what he preaches” in his latest book Social Networking For Authors! I loved this book and his complementary web site! I even had a short and immediate online chat with the author...

As a book reviewer, authors often look upon me as an individual who will help them work miracles—to sell their books. I believe a review helps; however, if nobody ever reads that review, it won’t help in the sales process. It is the author who sells, and I firmly believe that one of the most important opportunities for authors is through the Internet Social Networking activities.

Authors, this book may be just the one for you!

But, really, anybody who is in sales will benefit from this book (See, Michael, I’ve already started learning from your book and see the potential!)

Michael uses selling books via social networking as the method by which he shares much on social networking. I’ve been helping authors in small ways to do that for a number of years, so I must highlight that I learned new possibilities on many, many pages. For instance, at one site where I’ve been a fairly active member, Volkin highlighted a section/process that I didn’t even know about! I also immediately joined two sites based upon the description in the book.

Volkin’s book contains a chapter on various sites. He starts by describing “Their Niche” and then goes on to explain how to use the site as a free marketing tool. Obviously not every site will be of interest to each author; however, I believe the method of his analysis will also be a training tool by which other present and future sites can be evaluated. Also, various readers will be considering the potential sites for different reasons. That is, as a book reviewer, I provide a service, so my activity is selling myself to show the assistance I provide authors, while the authors would be interesting in marketing their books!

I loved this book because one of Volkin’s premises is that you must have a primary web site upon which you are selling your product. He then proceeds to give methods by which you begin to drive people to that web site...and, in writing his book, every single chapter gives you something to check out on that web site! He not only gets you there to his site, but he has used the tools he recommends to readers on his web site so that you can actually see it operationally as well as get specific directions on how to use it! Oh, be prepared, there is a charge for some additional information such as the videos—however, isn’t that the point of his book—and what you, the author, is trying to do!

I don’t rave about too many “how to” books, but this is one that I must say is a “must read” for anybody working online to promote books and other products. If you don’t have the creativity to imagine the possibilities, let Michael Volkin in Social Networking for Authors be the creative genius behind the innovative and common sense approaches for your future actions!
