Marketing your Book:
Nonfiction books can benefit from a wide variety of marketing services. Since nonfiction books typically have a very specific audience, it makes it somewhat easier to target the audience using online marketing, social media, and traditional media campaigns. Of course, success also depends on your research—and your connections. (And since you’ve done the research and have the connections, why not contact them directly?)
Fiction books can be trickier to market because their audiences are typically more broad, and potential readers may — or may not — make their interests known online. For fiction books, it is best to focus on reviews, Amazon Exposure, and social media such as Goodreads. Getting your work noticed in the right places — by the right people — is what you need to get good at.
Like any marketing program, it depends how you use your social media presence. However, if your audience uses social media and you are able to come up with content to keep them interested, you can definitely succeed using social media marketing.
There is no hard-and-fast rule about not submitting your own work to traditional publications for review and promotion, but typically it is much harder to get attention than if you are working through a publicist or established marketing team.
