Let’s face it, titles sell books, plus they make you famous. (Just ask Tim Ferris of “The Four Hour Work Week” fame). He tested title after title until finding one he felt confident would sell. Things worked out pretty well for him, wouldn’t you agree?
But how do you know if your book’s title is a good one?
It’s a tricky situation.
The story goes that Tim tested his possible titles to his target market via Google Adwords and chose the one that received the most clicks knowing it would be a winner on the shelves.
Although it’s a great idea and seemed to work well for him, it can be an expensive proposition for the rest of us!
I can tell you that “guessing” on a title that sounds good to you and a few friends isn’t a good strategy. In fact it could be downright embarrassing if your title flops.
Now, however, there is a way you can test your book’s title with the help of a group of your peers, plus a book writing and publishing pro, to see if it has potential.
Donna Kozik of Write A Book In A Weekend is hosting a free call centered on the important topic of book titles. And she’s making it fun with a “studio audience” of our peers voting on potential titles to say whether a title is “hot…or not.”
Donna is calling the free call “Title Idol” and you can find out all the details, plus get access to Donna’s “How to Determine a Winning Book Title” article here: The Title of Your Book
Donna is promising to make this free call both fun and informative!
