This blog about Amanda Hocking's success speaks for itself. Marketing is about building relationships and being genuinely yourself in doing so. If there were a 'secret' to success, this seems to be it and at the end of the day, doesn't it make the most sense? You don't buy stuff from telemarketers or agressive sales people in stores... why would you expect others to do so online? Yes, it takes time. Lots of time. Time you might have been writing a few extra books in... but if no one is reading your stuff, does it matter how many books you've written? So get out there, engage, and meet your future fans! And thanks for this blog Leona & Amanda. You rock. Be sure to follow their blogs when you visit their pages!
