Jennifer Keller – Marketer

20 years experience in marketing, branding, and content creation. Let me help you curate your brand before you share it with the world!

Overview

I’ve been a book lover for as long as I can remember. As a young girl, I’d sneak a flashlight into bed to read the latest Babysitter’s Club novel late into the night. Fast-forward 20-ish years, I landed the gig of my dreams at a publishing house—Thomas Nelson Publishers. I reveled in helping authors promote their books. Working with authors who had large platforms—such as William Bennett, Lynne Spears (yes, mother to Britney!), and Donald Miller—as well as first-time authors just getting started. I got to help these authors get their books into the hands of eager readers.


Five years in, we were purchased by HarperCollins and my publishing world expanded further as I experienced life at one of the “Big Five” houses. Our budgets were bigger, and our clout at retail was a little stronger, but the process of shepherding authors through the process of getting their work out into the world was still the same. It was always a thrill. When I left HarperCollins in 2015, it was with a deep respect for the publishing process and an understanding of what was required to get noticed as an author.


Over the years since leaving HarperCollins, I’ve gradually switched gears, honing my content development and writing skills. I've supported self-published writers and small businesses in launching books and promoting new products. I've helped to establish robust, consistent content strategies and inbound marketing content programs for clients. I've also written compelling books and book proposals with the informed background of a marketer.


I know my experience, attention to detail, and desire to see good writers succeed will serve you well. Be it through the development of a book proposal, a short-form content campaign, or the consultation and execution of a compelling brand strategy, I'd like to talk about how I can support your publishing needs.
