Does Your Time Spent Online Help Book Sales?

A recent Publishers Weekly article looked at the breakdown of bookselling and the influence an online campaign might have on sales.

Consider this:

Their research cites that online marketing is especially important to fiction titles. According to this study, 21% of book buyers said they learned of books they wanted to buy from online promotion. This vs. 13% who learned of these titles through other means (i.e. reviews, etc.).

Regarding the importance of an author’s platform: a whopping 28% of readers said they chose a book because of the author, while only 9% of readers bought because of subject. (Publishers Weekly, July 20, 2009)
