Every author is a small business.
Are you treating yourself like the business owner you are with the right author marketing system?
Why author marketing over book book marketing?
Book marketing is based on a transaction that requires you to convince someone to buy your book. It’s an old-school approach to marketing that consumers are not only wise to, but also find to be insincere and disruptive.
Author marketing is based on relationships. It’s all about gaining visibility to reach a target audience and build trust or social proof via social media, ads, events, interviews, etc. As readers get to know more about you, you build trust and gain social proof. Once strangers, your readers become friends who want to support you by buying your book, sharing your content, reviewing your book, and telling their friends. Over time, you’ve become someone they trust as a result of social proof you’ve built through social media content, email marketing, ads, events, interviews, etc. Relational marketing builds trust and an ongoing relationship. Transactional marketing is based on a single purchase.
I have more than 30 years experience in small business marketing. Most recently, the last six or so, in self-publishing. What surprised me the most as I entered the publishing world six or seven years ago, is that self- and indie-publishing have outpaced the book selling market. Publishing has become accessible to anyone who wants to publish a book. What does that mean to authors? With nearly one book hitting Amazon shelves every minute of every day, your book can and will get lost — unless you do something to gain visibility in an overcrowded market.
My author marketing solutions are designed to meet the changing needs of self-published authors at every level of experience. These services include coaching, consulting, and done-for-you services.
