What is the best way to market poetry? I have two published poetry books.
John’s Poetry Marketing Answer:
The best way to market poetry is to do live readings. Absolutely the best way. Always has been. Likely always will be.
In today’s world, you could also do podcasts, videos, and Google Hangouts featuring your poetry. That is likely to work as well.
Check out the following video based on a poem (The Dash by Linda Ellis). It has been viewed more than 30 million times via various websites:
Note: A day after I embeded this video, video embedding was no longer allowed by the poster. Very sad. And stupid. Not a wise marketing decision. But you can still see the video on YouTube. Do check it out.
If you can make a video like the one on YouTube, you can sell a lot of poetry.
