Well, it’s Day 2 of the Challenge – time to start the heavy lifting. As promised, each daily prompt will be about some aspect of marketing your book, because without marketing, you’ll have no readers, and without readers, there isn’t much point to writing a book.
Each day, we have a prompt upon which the authors may base their blogs – or they may opt to write on the topics of their choice.
The Day 2 prompt is:
Another key to book marketing success is knowing everything about your ideal reader’s demographics (e.g. age, gender, education level, income level, religious preference, parenting status, marital status) as well as their psychographics, which covers everything from the kind of car they drive to their favorite social media sites to what they do on Saturday mornings. Extrapolate to the parents if you’re a children’s author. Tell us about your ideal reader.
READERS, be sure to check out our PARTICIPANTS page to see the list of bloggers who are taking part in the challenge, and READ THEM! Then, if you like what you read, be sure to share the posts on your social media networks so our bloggers get the best exposure possible.
If you’re just learning about the Challenge for the very first time, don’t let the late hour deter you from joining! Fill out the REGISTRATION FORM, read the Guidelines, and begin blogging away! You’ll qualify for the contest to win a $35 gift card to the bookstore of your choice IF you back-post for all the days you’ve missed so far AND add your name to the MisterLinky for each date.

We’ll check in nightly for a recap of the day’s best blog entries.
