60+ More Links to Marketing Help and Information

I have cleaned out one more section of my content hoard on marketing. Several of these links will deal with book cover design. The cover is the most important aspect of your marketing plan and it needs to be created and used effectively. 

The cover is a billboard and can help you sink or swim in the literary waters. The cover must tell what genre or subject the book is about. The graphics must grab a customer’s attention within seconds. The back can be where you advertise your accomplishments in that genre and promote a future title.

As of the date of this post all links were working and up-to-date. If you find one that is bad, please let me know and I will remove it.
