EVALUATE - PLAN - IMPLEMENT
The goal of any successful book marketing plan is to understand which strategies are appropriate for your book and the best time to implement them. When we first start, we will evaluate or enhance your existing book marketing plan discussing your overall goals. We will then build a timeline to roll out for all phases of the marketing program. We will help you identify your target audience and show you how and when to communicate with them. We will also look to expand your reach with other readers who could be interested in your book. We will strategically launch a branding strategy across all platforms, websites, and content to help followers and customers quickly identify your brand and message.
EXPANDED AUTHOR PLATFORM - We will break down each segment of the Author Platform to ensure they are all implemented effectively. This includes your website, blog, online selling strategy, book reviews, promotions, social media, and others.
AMAZON OPTIMIZATION - We have been selling on Amazon since 2003 and understand how to sell books (and other products) on this platform. We will initiate all of the selling strategies and make you aware of all opportunities to support your book and be successful selling on Amazon.

We will set up a weekly call for most of our time together and hold each other accountable for completing the tasks we discuss each week.
