Projects

First time author consistently in the top 10 of her category

Pam first came to me unsure of her cover and confused as to what marketing tactics would work for her book.

Together we came up with a marketing plan that works for her, adjusted the cover and blurb, launched the book with a bang.

Her book is now consistently in the top 10,000 books on all of Amazon.com and maintains a spot in the top 10 of her main category.

She also maintains a log to track exactly how well her ads are performing. She uses this to make adjustments to her marketing in line with how the market shifts.

With the success of her first book, she's now eagerly working on a follow-up to the series.

3x in sales, 4x increase in book ratings

Peter came to me feeling overwhelmed and without a clear action plan to connect his book with readers.

After one month of coaching and direction - we updated his cover for under $100, optimized his blurb, categories, and keywords. We also started running advertising to his book.

The results?

His ratings increased from 16 to 65 rating and his sales shot up 3-fold!

He is now writing his next books and applying the same lessons to replicate the success.

Optimized Categories and Keywords

Mark Q came to me knowing that categories and keywords were important but not confident on how to find them. Together, we used best practices and found 8 US-based eBook categories that his book fit into. We then found an additional 6 for the UK market.

What did this get him?

Best-seller in two categories!

And another writing achievement he can show off.

Goal: Gain exposure for new author in mystery genre

We worked together over three 1-hour sessions to update and improve her cover, description, and started Amazon ads. We also worked to improve her website to capture email addresses and build her following. Since she was in KDP Select, we worked together to organized a price promotion where her book would be discounted temporarily to reach a new audience.

Results: Her book was downloaded 3,625 times in ONE DAY! and jumped up to #45 on all of Kindle. She added dozens of emails to her list and grew her following to prepare for an even better launch of her second book.

2592.66% increase in page reads in just 4 months

Despite a fantastic book, Avery struggled to gain traction, investing hours in Facebook groups, newsletter swaps, and blogger outreach with minimal results.

One transformative coaching session with us led to a tailored marketing plan that suited her budget and genre. In just four months, her income and sales soared.

Page reads leaped from 6,454 (June 2020) to a staggering 173,784 (Sept 2020). With only two books, she generated nearly $1,400 and amassed over 500 ratings on one book alone!

JD is very knowledgeable. Before I met him, I was unfocused and floundering in my marketing approach. He has helped me focus and come up with a solid plan. I'm excited about giving it a try. JD is easy to work with. I'm glad I consulted with him.

As a writer new to the world of marketing, JD offered me tremendous value and insight at a very reasonable price point. Knowledgeable, kind, and a natural coach, JD knows how to make authors feel comfortable and prepared. Self-publication can be scary, and I gained a lot of confidence from his expertise and guidance. He has great written and spoken communication, and all his training materials ...

JD's course was invaluable! His team expanded on so many useful techniques and tricks for publishing your book.

I think we all loved getting help with our blurb, opinions on our covers, and finding out the secret of A...
