You need to do some prep before you start, that is, create some marketing collateral – basic materials:
Once you have lots of marketing “creative”: collateral such as book covers, advertising images, CTAs (calls to action, a form of advertising), taglines, blurbs, and topic areas, you’ll find that marketing is huge fun.
Think of marketing as an expedition. Without the proper clothing, supplies and preparation, chance are you’d HATE your trip. If you were going on a wilderness expedition, you might not even survive. You will survive marketing… indeed, you’ll come to enjoy it.
