Finding Success With Non-Traditional Marketing Methods

Using non-traditional marketing methods are becoming a new public awareness, and receiving better results.

For instance, utilizing the internet for our own publications, we’re able to create and formulate our own products and services and find unique ways to publish it. Without the traditional third-party involvement.

We can’t expect to use the same traditional marketing methods and approaches and expect to get different results.

People are becoming Savvy online, and self-taught by using the internet. Traditional schools, publishers and advertisements are being overlooked, due to the cost and unproven results. So with using non-traditional marketing strategies, we are able to shorten any drawn out process and corner the market in a matter of time. Plus avoid the costly over head and hiring employees.

Success With Non-Traditional Marketing Methods

I enjoyed reading about this astounding publication in how this young 26 years old gal, went through the non-traditional marketing method and made a name for herself.

I couldn’t help myself but to write about this amazing story, in how Amanda Hocking, persisted to get her books published. She mentioned in her interview that she didn’t expect it to progress, as it did. And she didn’t go through the traditional method by using a publisher, she did it on her own, by using the internet and social media. Here’s her story and thanks to, USA Today for recognizing Hocking’s success.

Self-publishing Creates E-book Star

Amanda got fed up with attempts to find a traditional publisher for her novels, Hocking self-published last March and began selling her novels on online bookstores including Amazon and Barnes & Nobles. Amanda Hocking sold more than 450,000 copies of her nine young-adult paranormal books last month. Virtually all were e-books. Most were priced low (.99 cents to $2.99) digital downloads.

Amanda said, “I can’t really say that I would have been more successful if I’d gone with the traditional publisher” and she says “But I know it is working well for me.” She has three titles that will make their debuts in the top 50 of USA Today’s Best Selling Books list.

Hocking credits her success to aggressive self-promotion on her blog, Facebook and Twitter, word of mouth and writing in a popular genre. I like the way Amanda thinks, even her blog is from a Free website by blogger. She’s very cool to me.

    Outbound marketing tactics just don’t work anymore. Consumers are becoming distrustful and disheartened by interruption, old-school type techniques. In Amanda Hocking’s case, she’s wisely using inbound marketing tools that are allowing her to establish lasting (and lucrative!) relationships with her following.

  9. Wow! This is phenomenal stuff! Especially with the way things have been going for brick-and-mortar stores, as well as the climb of the ebook in sales year after year, publishers are starting to cut their back lists of authors and only print their “brand name” authors.

    What are the author-hopefuls to do? Thank you for featuring Amanda on your blog, Lani. I’m off to devour her material.
