Looking for a book marketing plan? You’re in the right place.
Before we talk about the plan, let me show you its effectiveness.
Time travel with me.
Let’s go all the way back July 2012.
Termination Orders were out. Silent Assassin was on its way.
These are the names of first two books by Action Thriller author Leo J. Maloney.
Leo’s publisher had just told him that he needed to do social media.
Not knowing what that exactly meant or, how to even do it, Leo began a search to find someone who could help him do this “social media”.
He found me.
We scheduled a 30-minute initial consultation meeting to determine if we were a good fit for each other or not.
Two hours into the meeting, we shook hands to signify the beginning of a working relationship.
We built a plan and followed it with unwavering faith.
In fact, we’ve repeated the process every year since.
We’ve sold over 200,000 copies of all his books combined and counting.
Two Tenets of my Book Marketing Philosophy
I believe having a book marketing plan is crucial for every single author out there. An author without a book marketing plan is setting him/herself to fail.
I base all of my plans on the following two tenets.
- Book marketing is about shooting little shots every single day.
- Book marketing is not about doing what’s easy but doing what’s effective.
I have spoken to hundreds of authors in the past 5 years and found that over 95% of authors violate both of these tenets.
I also found that the authors who violate these tenets lack a book marketing plan.
Coincidence? I think not.
You may have heard this –> If it’s not scheduled, it’s not getting done.
A book marketing plan schedules things in your calendar (provided you work the plan).
Once you have an activity booked in your calendar, you execute it. That’s how you sell a heck of a lot more books than you ever did – shooting little shots every single day.
I got two questions for you
Do you need a book marketing plan?
Are you willing to work hard?
If you answered Yes to BOTH of these questions (no exceptions), then I’d like to help you develop a book marketing plan.
Here’s how it would work
We’d have a hour-long Information Gathering phone call. The objective of this call would be for me to learn about you, your objectives, your current marketing activities, your books, your digital footprint and your brand.
Once I have the information I need, I will develop a customized plan for you and email it to you.
The cost of it all? Only $350.
