Friday Funnies: Marketing Nightmares!

Updated: Jun 14, 2023

Hello My Happy People,

When it comes to self-publishing almost every indie author will tell you the hardest part about the process is marketing your books. It can be the things that nightmares are made of especially if you are working with little to no advertising budget like myself.

This is when we hit social media, contact friends and and family to try to get some word of mouth going, network with other authors, and if you are like me, create a book themed podcast ( where you can do most of those things in one place.

But the trials and tribulations of marketing your books can be exhausting at times and you just have to force yourself to find the lighter side of it all ...which is why we have Marketing Jokes today!

When you can beat what you are struggling with sometimes it's just best to find things to laugh about through it all. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and these jokes get you off to a great start!
