Publishing Kids Books Top Tips:

  1. An idea that resonates with your buyer – in this case the author, Autumn McKay is a teacher who geared her books currently for kindergarten and younger. In addition, her engineer husband also wrote coloring books.
  2. Coloring books – great idea, because they are consumed. Consumable books are a great way to generate additional sales.
  3. Traditional vs. Self-publishing? Traditional publishers still want authors to market their own books, and the McKays decided it was in their best interest to self-publish and keep all the profit.
  4. Instagram is a way the book is marketed and a way to gather emails.
  5. Call to action – whether you are on an interview, speaking before groups of pre-school moms, or even on social media giving away something helps. Autumn used a lead magnet – giving the listener a “taste” of what her books are like in exchange for an email to add to her list. She can then give special promotions and more. Here is a call to action Autumn used as a lead generator. 
  6. Email lists are important, they are a way for the subscriber to learn more about the author and what the author offers.
  7. Giving the listener a PDF of books – here is an example of what Autumn’s books: BestMomIdeas Book Page PDF
