Can I advertise an Afrikaans Novel here?

I recently signed up for adwords, but I am not sure that this is the right medium to advertise my Afrikaans historical novel. I wrote the book and printed it myself as I have a pirnting shop. Publishers are reluctant to help me because they want to print and publish it themselves. My book was translated into English as well and published by Xlibris UK under the title "A NEW DAY DAWNS" but that is only available from them and their suppliers. My problem is to sell my Afrikaans version of which I have printed 5000 coppies.

I am not very good at telephonic conversations that is why i prefer to do things by email

hope that you will advise me. Thanks Pieter

Hi Pieter,

 

This is an open forum - please edit your comment to remove your ID number.... for your own security...

 

That done, there is no reason why you should not advertise your Afrikaans book on AdWords... however, there is no language setting for Afrikaans - so you'll need to set the language targeting to another language - most likely English. You could then, of course, write your ads in Afrikaans - although you might need to get your regional Google office to approve the ads manually.

 

Obviously, you will also need to set the geo targeting for RSA - and you may want to sub-target for more Afrikaans speaking areas - I'm not sure about the demographics but I'm sure you will know where best to market within the country.

 

You might also look to run image ads on the Google Content Network and you will be able to hand pick sites in Afrikaans that carry Google ads.

Good luck with the project.
