Simply Cookbooks

Online Marketing Tools

We offer several FREE online tools to help you maximize the marketing and sales of your cookbook. Once you have submitted your cookbook order to us, you may take advantage of the tools below.

Web Site & Blog Widget

Create a FREE widget to add to your web site or blog. The widget will link to your Ordering Page (hosted on our site), including contact information and a downloadable version of your Mail-Order page. This will allow all cookbook sales to be directed to you.

Modify Your Widget

Copy and paste this code into your web site.

Note: The dotted gray frame, or container, should be set to match the height of your widget as closely as possible. (The height is determined by the width you choose and the contents of the widget.)

Ordering Page

Once your order is submitted, we provide an Ordering Page that you may link to for any of your online marketing efforts. The Ordering Page features an image of your cookbook, contact information, and a downloadable Mail-Order Page (if you selected this option in your cookbook setup).

Media Kit

The media kit is a compressed .zip file containing images of your cookbook cover at different sizes . You may use these images to expand your marketing efforts in various forms of media, including web (organization's blog, social media, e-mail, etc.) and print (newspaper press releases, brochures, etc.).

Social Media Marketing

Facebook

Facebook is a great way to extend cookbook sales beyond your immediate community. Facebook's tools can provide many ways to get the word out about your cookbook. From creating a page for your organization, sharing messages, photos, and videos, or adding a link to your web site, you can generate sales.

Jumpstart your efforts by sharing the link to your Ordering Page and uploading a photo of your cookbook from your FREE Media Kit.

Twitter

YouTube™ is an innovative way to spread the word about your cookbook. Upload a video announcing your cookbook sales or record a "launch" event. Coordinate the video with your other online efforts. You can embed the video directly in your Facebook or Myspace pages to share with friends and fans, share a link to the video on Twitter, or send the link to everyone on your e-mail list. Let local media know about your video and watch interest grow!

Twitter

Twitter is one of the fastest growing social media phenomena and is available on a diverse range of devices. "Microblogging" in 140 characters or less, you can generate quick exposure about your cookbook and update followers on purchasing opportunities.

Share your unique and memorable Twitter name in all of your marketing efforts. It's easy for others to find and "follow" you on Twitter. Your "tweets" can drum up serious sales.
