September 2004, V3#9: Marketing Wednesday, Jan 28 2009 

When marketing a book, try to keep all of your author produced material to a general theme concerning format.  This might include choosing a paper/card stock color, keeping the major amount of your fonts the same (many even make sure it matches the book).  You may even choose a “theme” (ready made design – often involving graphics)  from a publishing program and carry it throughout.  Like any large retailer, this “small stuff” will help build what is called Name Brand Recognition.  When they see the envelope in the mail, they know without even looking it’s from you.  If they see a flyer they know it’s about the book without reading it.  Many “repeat authors” even carry the design over to other projects.  Some keep the exact same design format, others change one or two elements such as color or headline font.

MS Word Templates

Do you have a file that you use over and over again – such as letterhead layout or basic query? If so, an easy way not to have to retype it all each time is to save a generic file. If there is changing information in the text, replace it with a line of symbols you eye is drawn to (*************). When you want to use the saved file, open it and automatically save as with the new file name, then compose. If you want to, a real template can be made, but they are opened differently then regular files. Get  the file ready, then when you save as, change the program type from “word document” to “document template” – save as usual but where the computer wants you to. Then, to use the template, from the pull down menus choose file, then new. This will bring up the right hand pane or a window. If the template you want isn’t shown in the right hand pane, choose general templates which will bring up the window – choose the template you wish to use and it will open as a new document.
