How to Leverage TikTok to Sell Books
Is it worth your time to join BookTok?
I've been so busy working with clients on a great new tool that I haven't had much time to email, but I wanted to take a break and let you know about TikTok… specifically about the trainings and strategy options I can help you with.
First, I was so excited to see that physical bookstores are making a comeback. Did you know that 2021 was the best year for print book sales? The reason: BookTok.
So, what is BookTok? It's the book recommendation community on TikTok that's filled with reviews, interviews, influencers, and all things books. I'm a kids' BookToker myself, and I LOVE BookTok because ALL books have a chance there. Joining TikTok to market your book is a no-brainer.`
And in case you were wondering, NO, it's not just romance books that perform well on TikTok.
Here are some authors who are crushing it:
Stone Maidens. The author published these over a decade ago and his numbers were pretty bland until his daughter posted a TikTok that went viral.
Ap Beswick, an indie author who just quit his day job as a nurse because of TikTok.
Aparna Verma, another indie author who just signed a six-figure, three-book publishing deal after gaining popularity on TikTok.
Shelby Leigh, a poet who has now sold over 40,000 poetry books.
Grandma Gains, an 80-year old grandmother who is leveraging TikTok to consistently sell health and wellness books.
