Self-published authors are always looking for ways to market their books further and better.

An intuitive tactic that has helped promote and get further sales for my books was when people took pictures with them and posted them on Social Media. Their friends and connections would see them, enquire and place orders.

And while I was about to launch my fifth book – The Anxious Entrepreneur, an idea hit me to create an icon that encourages the above, i.e. an icon that requests or prompts readers to take pictures with my book/s and post on Social Media – in turn promoting the book/s.

I call the icon the ‘Book Selfie.’ You insert it in the first few pages of the book, ideally right after the Table of Contents.
