The John 3:16 Marketing Network


For the past couple of years, I have had the privilege of being one of many authors in the John 3:16 Marketing Network.  When I was a ”newbie” marketing my books I struggled…”floundered” is a better word, in getting the word out there about my books.  I STILL do!  But praise God for the John 3:16 Network of authors.  From the moment I became a member I have been whole-heartedly encouraged by a great group of Christian authors who share the common goal to reach others for Christ through our books.  The thing is for us to reach that goal, people actually need to pick up  our books and read them, and that’s where the John 3:16 Marketing Network comes in.  It’s authors helping authors through the use of online social networking to help with book launches and promotion.
But it goes beyond that.  We are offered techniques and tips to help us achieve “Best Seller” status on Amazon.com  Achieving “Best Seller” status is not only incredibly encouraging to an author, but it elicits even more public interest in the book.  In my case, with the help of the Network,  I not only achieved best seller status on Amazon.com with my second book, Heal the Wounded on the day of its launch, but I garnered renewed interest in my debut novel, Shoot the Wounded, so it climbed to #1 on Amazon.ca !

I can’t tell you how excited I was to see that!  More recently the Network has been looking at other ways of promoting the authors and their books.  Lorilyn Roberts, founder of the John 3:16 Marketing Network with the help of a few others put together a great promotional book: Taste and See, A Sampling of First Chapters by John 316 Marketing Network

  As one of the contributors I was delighted to participate in this innovative project.
