Tips on How to Promote Your Erotica Novel Online

Erotica is one of the most popular genres online. From “The Story of O” to the “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy, erotica is a genre that continues to inspire.

Nevertheless, while erotica is widely popular, that doesn’t mean one shouldn’t slack off on the marketing angle. In fact, with so many books on the market, it’s crucial now more than ever to start marketing your book to your audience. Fortunately, the internet has provided several gateways on how you can make this possible on a tight budget.

Here are some handy tips on how to promote your erotica novel online:

  • Publish it on a popular platform. eBooks are all the rage nowadays, and it’s not difficult to figure out why. They’re convenient, can easily be formatted, and require very little work. There are also many popular places where you can have your eBook and hardcover/paperback published, like Amazon and Barnes & Noble Press.

(Take note: Some of these self-publishing options may require an exclusive contract, so read the terms and conditions carefully.)

  • Create an eye-catching cover. People say that one shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but that’s not always the case. With so many erotic romance books available, it’s hard to make your story stand out without a compelling cover to draw their attention. Make sure your book stands out without giving away too much.
  • Consider making a teaser trailer. There are several video editing software available, as well as royalty-free video clips. Combine that with royalty-free music, a stand-out font, and smooth transitions, and you just got yourself a free trailer! If you don’t know how to make one, consider watching online video tutorials.
  • Join online forums and groups. Many self-published authors join social media websites like Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit, where they share marketing tips. Join these sites today, share your knowledge with the rest, and learn from the experts.

Online marketing is one of the most cost-efficient ways to get your product to a broad audience. It is also a learning curve, so if you’re still in the starting phase, remember to keep patient and absorb as much information as possible from the experts. Good luck and happy publishing!
