We're offering a one hour phone consultation with
a book marketing professional

Authors often say "writing the book was easy... marketing the book is hard."

From a marketing perspective, there are several different ways to attract long-term attention, spark book sales, and build your brand. An excellent cover design and professional editing are essential to producing a high-quality book and attracting positive attention. But to get the word out effectively you will also need some creative marketing ideas and a working knowledge of the promotional tools available.

We're here to help with customized book marketing strategy sessions

We're here to help with customized book marketing strategy sessions where you'll learn how to create awareness for your book and your brand.

Before your one-hour phone consult, you'll submit an author questionnaire telling us about yourself and what you hope to accomplish with your book. This will help customize and focus the session, and ensure that it is tailored with advice, publishing industry information, and initiatives specifically for you and your work.

Frequently Asked Questions about Book Marketing Consultation

How does this service work, step by step?

Here is a basic outline of the process:

  • You purchase the service on myidentifiers.com.
  • You complete and submit the questionnaire.
  • Smith Publicity, a firm specializing in promoting authors and publishers that has forged a reputation as one of the most creative publicity and public relations agencies worldwide, reviews your questionnaire and book and author information
  • You will be introduced to one of Smith's experts, who will coordinate and execute your one-hour one-on-one consultation.
  • You receive a concluding email from your consultant, which includes additional educational material on the topic you select.

What types of questions are on the questionnaire?

The questionnaire asks for information about your book, the target audience you're trying to reach, and your personal and professional background. For example, you'll be asked to name specific things you want your readers to know about you. You can also list topics, not related to your book, that you feel qualified to discuss when promoting your book (such as trending news topics). Your training will be custom-tailored to your needs, based on your answers to these questions.

When is the best time to develop a marketing strategy for my book?

The goal of this service is to give you the information you need to get started on these key book marketing initiatives. While they can be done at any stage of the publishing process (before or after publication), the earlier you have this information, the better.
