Selling books is all about visibility – getting your upcoming release noticed by excited readers eager to buy. But cutting through the overwhelming noise online is no easy task, especially when publishers have marketing budgets much larger than yours.

That‘s where Instagram‘s troop of book influencers comes in. These passionate book reviewers boast engaged niche followers in the thousands to millions, driving authentic word-of-mouth hype for new releases relevant to their audience.
