Performed my Marketing Makeover service on sci-fi author David Hulegaard. This service addressed his overall author platform through an assessment of his cover, product description, Amazon page, author website, Facebook author page, Twitter page, and more. I then gave him tips and instructions on what he's doing that is working well and what needed improvement and how to implement the suggested changes. I then wrote a detailed step by step marketing plan for him to execute. This was followed up by a thirty-minute consult for him to ask any questions on the materials and how best to move forward.
Chris Patchell, author of In the Dark, is a bestselling Amazon author. I helped her with the complete launch process for this book. In the Dark is a Kindle Press title and to launch it successfully I started by writing a complete launch plan to focus the marketing efforts and best utilize our time and money for maximum sales and exposure. The tactics I executed included a free promotion with ads on Deadly Lies, her first novel, purchasing a book blast on In the Dark, pitching the book to thriller blogs, ensuring the back matter was up-to-date and highlighted the new book, and created a newsletter to send out to her mailing list. Following the launch, we used continuous marketing tactics, including specialized ads, to continue sales. For In the Dark, we also submitted the book to reviewers and review sites for increased visibility.
Since its launch, In the Dark has been a top seller and has over 300 reviews with a 4.3 star rating.
