I'm one of the founders of Reedsy, which occupies a good 90% of my time. The remaining 10% I like to dedicate to personally helping authors with marketing, and in particular:
- Facebook advertising (both for lead generation or sales)
- Amazon advertising (either through the Amazon ads dashboard or through Amazon Advantage)

I've worked on several projects (see below) for friends, which have led me to start writing a book on Facebook advertising for authors. Unfortunately, I spend way too much time procrastinating about it by testing new things for my author friends than by actually writing the damn book…

I'm going to be Out of Office on Reedsy 99% of the time, and only activate my profile when I know a specific author wants to reach out to me for advertising services.

Ricardo is knowledgeable, professional, and most personable. He not only did as he promised, but answered all my questions, including a few that perhaps fell outside the scope of our project. Definitely recommend him!
