Email marketing is thus far the most important skill that every independent writers should acquire. Unlike the Major House Publishers with their 1,000s of instant connections (libraries, bookstores, public relation firms, subscribers, bloggers etc), the chance of any regular independent writer capturing that best-selling role seems merely impossible. The fact is, many independent writers cannot build an instant audience as many household publishers, but for that persistent writer who's willing to learn, build, and apply his/her skill to online marketing, the goal of achieving that instant audience is not that impossible.
Think about this, there are millions of eReader (Kindle, Nook, Sony, Kobo etc) owners in the United States alone, and many more book lovers around the world. How would they know about your wonderful story if they are not inform? Email and Social Media exposures could be the answer. Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, YouTube, and many other internet giants will seize to exist today without email.  In fact, there can be no such as a social media Viral response without email correspondences.
This is why email marketing is so important to every writer, especially the self-published ones with no backings.
On today's topic, I'm willing to teach you one of the simplest aspect of email marketing, using Google.
As we all know, Gmail is the most commonly used free email domain in the world, and the only one that allow its account holders to send 500 free emails per hour / day. Yahoo, AOL, HotMail and MSN only allow you to send 100 emails per hour & 500 per day. This is very important to remember when you begin your email marketing, because if you go over the sending limits your account may get restricted.
In order to take to take full advantage of Gmail's vulnerability, you will want to send out over 400 emails a day to those individual readers who may get excited about your published book(s). To begin, it is always wise to export and save your current contacts, and then import the new contacts (recipients) to your email contact list from day to day. To export your current contacts you'll need to;

  1. Sign in to Gmail.com.
  2. Click Gmail at the top-left corner of your Gmail page, then choose Contacts.
    Gmail drop-down
  3. From the More drop-down menu, select Export....
  4. Choose whether to export all contacts or only one group.
  5. Select the format in which you'd like to export your contacts' information. Please note, some of these formats can lose some contact information.
    • To transfer contacts between Google accounts, use the Google CSV format. This is the recommended way to back up your Google Contacts.
    • To transfer contacts to Outlook, Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail, or various other apps, use the Outlook CSV format.
    • To transfer contacts to Apple Address Book, use the vCard format.
  6. Click Export.
  7. Choose Save to Disk then click OK.
  8. Select a location to save your file, and click OK.

To import contacts to Gmail:

  1. Create a custom CSV file with TargetHero.com. Sign up and Sign in, Click on the List menu, Click on the Create a list icon, Enter a name, and then your list of emails,either manually or from a file. This will export and format the email list that you just created as a CSV file that can be saved to your computer.
  2. Sign in to Gmail.
  3. Click Gmail at the top-left corner of your Gmail page, then choose Contacts.
  4. Click the More button above the contacts list and select Import....
  5. Click the Choose File button.
  6. Select the file you'd like to upload and click the Import button.

When it's done, Gmail will display the number of contacts imported.
Next step is to compose your Newsletter / HTML Book-page into the email body. To learn more about how you can create an email-bodied-book-page in minutes, follow these steps; http://bit.ly/1759Sef
If you need help creating a more attractive book-page, you can always contact Judd Miller at juddmiller@rocketmail.com for $5 per book-page creation.
Now that you are ready to send out your first promotion emails to the new recipients who doesn't know about your book(s) yet, it is always best to keep in mind that if you offer your eBook for free, the recipient are more than likely to take interest in it (instead of viewing it as spam) and possibly share it with their friends, colleagues and family members. Offering your eBook for free may increase exposure to your other published books.
Another thing that you may want to do is change your Gmail account name, perhaps from 'Richard Hansen' to something like 'Free Kindle Books' or as we prefer it 'Indie Writers Support.'
Follow this guide to learn how to apply this setting;

  1. Click the gear in the top right.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Click the Accounts tab.
  4. In the “Send mail as:” section, locate the email address you'd like to edit.
  5. Click edit info next to the address.
  6. In the “Name:” section, specify what you’d like your name to be and click Save changes.

Now, you are ready to go, but the question to many writers is, how do I find the email lists of those readers that I can advertise my books to? Well, we have extracted a lot of social media members who shows strong interest in these related topics based on our search criteria; books, eBooks, novels, writing, reading, magazines, poems, manuscripts, audiobooks, literature etc. Choose from any of the social media lists below and Judd Miller will send you at least 1,000 members of each websites to the email address you provide with your paypal payment(s). The list are 1,000 members emails for $5;  2,000 members for $10; 3,000 members for $15 and so forth. Choose wisely, because these lists could save your writing career.  This practice will also save you a lot of money instead of using email marketing websites such as Constant Contact, aWeber, and iContact who charges up to $25 just to send out 2,500 emails.

Remember that you may also apply this same method to your Yahoo, AOl, MSN and Hotmail account before you start sending. This will increase your sending ability from just 500 emails per hour with Gmail to about about 1,000 emails per hour if you use the other email accounts as well.
You are not restricted to using these emails for only email marketing. You may use them to increase your online visibility as well through social media invitations / connections  (Facebook Fanpage, LinkedIn Connections, Google+ circles etc).
If you interested in our Bulk Emailing Software that sends out unlimited emails per day, email Judd Miller at juddmiller@rocketmail.com.

We hope you enjoy today's subject.
