Overview

The old, traditional marketing tactics don't work anymore.

Press releases, book tours, and bookstore shelves. They had their day, but today's books are found online, by looking in the world's biggest search engines — Amazon and Google — not by walking into brick and mortar stores.

Where are books sold today?

● Amazon sells 80% of all ebooks and 55% of all print books in the United States

● Physical bookstores, hard to break into for today's authors, saw a sales drop of 39% since 2015

● Last year, Jeff Bezos reported that over 1,000 indie authors made over $100,000 on Amazon

These numbers are great news for indie authors, and they don't even include the many other online bookstores that today's authors have access to.

Today's Author Marketing

As an author, you need to focus your marketing efforts on being found online, everywhere your readers are looking for books.

Once found, you need to stay found, keep in touch to build the relationship, and get your readers ready for the day when you publish your book.

It might sound like a lot of work, complicated and time-consuming, but it doesn't have to be.

It's my job to help you.

I put systems in place so you can get back to doing what you love, writing books.

If you're serious about making money as an author, writing the books you love, it's time we talked.
