How to Stop Comparison When Marketing Your Book

It’s so easy to make comparisons when marketing our books. 

“She’s” selling more books.

“She” has a bigger launch team.

“She’s” getting a lot more likes on her Instagram posts.

… and on and on it goes.

Today I’m thrilled to have Shannon Popkin as my guest on Book Marketing Mania. Shannon is the author of Comparison Girl: Lessons from Jesus on Me-Free Living in a Measure-Up World

It’s so easy to make comparisons when marketing our books. Let’s stop being comparison girls and cheer each other on instead. Shannon Popkin, author of Comparison Girl: Lessons from Jesus on Me-Free Living in a Measure-Up World, shares on the Book Marketing Mania podcast with Kim Stewart.
