As an author, getting your book in front of potential readers is key to achieving success. With so many options available, it can be difficult to decide whether to use book advertising services or to handle your book marketing on your own. While both options have their pros and cons, it ultimately comes down to your budget, time, and marketing expertise. Book advertising services can provide a lot of exposure, but they can also be expensive. On the other hand, DIY book marketing requires time and effort, but it can be more cost-effective. In this blog, we will explore the benefits and drawbacks of both options to help you make an informed decision.
DIY book marketing, or Do-It-Yourself book marketing, is a marketing approach where authors handle all the marketing activities for their books themselves. This approach is often used by self-published authors who want to save money and maintain control over their marketing activities. DIY book marketing requires authors to be proactive and hands-on in promoting their books.
When deciding whether to use book advertising services or DIY book marketing, there are several factors to consider.
Here are some of the most important ones:
Book advertising services can be expensive, so it's important to consider your budget and financial resources before making a decision. DIY book marketing can be a more cost-effective option, but it still requires some investment in terms of time and resources.
If you have marketing skills and experience, DIY book marketing may be a good option for you. However, if you lack marketing expertise, you may want to consider using book advertising services to ensure that your book is marketed effectively.
DIY book marketing requires a significant time investment, which can be challenging for authors who are already busy writing. If you have limited time and availability, book advertising services may be a better option for you.
There are many factors to consider when deciding whether to use book advertising services or DIY book marketing. Both approaches have their pros and cons, and the best choice will depend on your unique situation and goals. However, by conducting a self-assessment, seeking expert advice, and setting realistic expectations, you can make an informed decision that will help you achieve success as an author.

This is the first time I’ve worked with Book
Writing Cube and I’m happy that I chose to
work with them. I am self-publishing my book
for the first time and I didn’t know what to
To be honest I happen to come by Book
Writing Cube by accident. I was researching
websites that helped with self-publishing
and I clicked on it and accidentally clicked
on the chat icon. Someone responded and at
first I didn’t write anything back. But then
I decided to take a chance and the person I
talked to put me in contact with Mark
Rivera. Mark and his team have been very
helpful during this whole process. They take
my suggestions and show me where I can make
improvements. So far I am very satisfied
with the work they have been doing. I know
that they will do everything they can to
make my debut book a success. I am very
confident of that.
