Would You Like Me to Help You Promote and Sell More Books?
Writing a book is hard enough. Getting it into a printed form is another hurdle you have to overcome.
Now you have to promote and sell it!
Being an author and publisher has many rewards. That’s why I’ve been at it since 1992. But it can also be frustrating as you try to figure out the confusing worlds of book publicity, marketing, Internet promotion, and sales.
I may be able to help you. Here is some quick info on how to hire me and put my years of guerrilla marketing and book publishing experience to work for you.
Note: I can’t do all the work for you. I won’t manage your career, design your web site, or launch a PR campaign on your behalf. But …
I will give you my best creative ideas, honest feedback and direction … and maybe even make you aware of book sales opportunities you’re sitting on right now that you don’t even know exist!
Here’s a rundown of the best ways I can serve you …
Customized Guerrilla (and Internet) Marketing Ideas
Every author and book are different. Everyone has a background and story that sets them apart. But most people are too close to themselves to recognize what makes them special. And they don’t know how to leverage who they are to serve the world and spread their message using dozens of low-cost and no-cost tools — especially online. I can help you uncover those.
Author Website Critique
I’ll look over your site with a fine tooth comb and tell you what’s good, bad and ugly. I’ll reveal what’s working, what’s not, and what you need to add or change to make it more effective. A few simple tweaks can make a world of diffference.
Sales Copy Tune-up
The same goes for the wording on your web pages and sales materials. Most people who create these things focus on the author and the book, instead of what’s most important: the reader and buyer! I’ll point out the strengths and weaknesses of your sales message and, as time allows, will even rewrite your copy to make it sizzle.
Press Release Tune-up
I published a music magazine for 10 years. I’ve seen thousands of (mostly bad) press releases and written hundreds of them myself (mostly good, of course :-). This has helped me get coverage on NPR and many print and online publications around the world. Let me shape up your news pitches with stronger headlines and truly newsworthy hooks.
Could You Use This Kind of Help With Your Book?
Here are my book consulting rates …
- 1 hour paid in advance – $195
- 3 hours paid in advance – $495
The options above can be applied to time spent with you on the phone or via Skype, answering questions by email, or me working on your project on my own.
Do This If You’re Interested …
Honestly, I get a lot of requests for book marketing advice, but I only have so many hours a month to devote to this type of work. Most of my time is spent creating new titles and promoting my own books (in other words, living this stuff).
If you’re interested, please fill out this simple online form. I want to make sure I feel I can help you before we move forward.
I’ll contact you either way to let you know. If we’re a good fit and I have time, we’ll proceed with payment and setting up a time to connect one-on-one via Skype video (my personal preference) or phone.
Publishing a book brings its author a great feeling of accomplishment. But getting your message or story out into the wider world, touching lives, and making sales take your joy as an author to a whole new level.
