When it comes to certain times in your life, publishing a novel is a moment to be proud of yourself. And, sometimes, in those proud moments the impulse to splurge instead of save money tickles with your intentions. One of those times might be when it comes to promoting your novel, whether it’s your first or one
Of course, what promotional items you buy is your choice, but if you’re looking to spend a pretty penny, below are the top semi-expensive items you might want to consider.
Whether they are for home or travel, personalized coffee mugs are not cheap, but they are very valued with readers. Running anywhere from $10.00 to $15.00 each, while that’s not much for one, when you are buying fifty or more for a book event that can be one pricy purchase. Aside from the price, though, your table will certainly be a popular one if you are handing out coffee mugs.
Handing out zip drives at a book even might will certainly make your table a popular one. Running anywhere from $5.00 to $12.00, personalized zip drives are surely to be appreciated and used, and should be considered if you’re looking to spend that kind of money.
Small to medium canvas bags are another great promotion item option. For only something different, but for something people will use. Grocery shopping, going to the beach, packing snacks for a family road trip, canvas bags have a multitude of uses. What better to give to people than not only something they can use, but something they will use with your book cover on the side.
CELL PHONE/TABLET COVERS
With the growing trend of iPhones, Samsung phones, and tablets, phone cases have recently spiked in popularity. Mimicking a book, your cover is embossed on the case, leaving you with a perfect way to promote your novel for people to see. The only downside, besides the cost unless you want to splurge, is you have to take into consideration that unless your book is wildly popular people might not be inclined to use your case on their phone.
