Overview

Book Marketing and Promotion

You’ve written your book. You have had it edited to within a hairsbreadth of perfection. Your manuscript has been read by a trusted group of beta-readers. Now it’s time to send your baby out into the world. What’s next?

You need a great cover. You need a winning description, lightly loaded with category appropriate keywords and meta-data to appeal to the all-encompassing algorithms that dominate digital space. You need to identify your readers and analyze the competition. Then, we need to nestle you in the correct genre and subgenre and find the right keywords to help your readers find you. It sounds like rocket science, but it isn’t. It’s computer science.

When everything is ready, we'll market you like mad. Using price promotions, content marketing, social media marketing, and PPC and PPM campaigns, we will help you climb the charts on Amazon, Kobo, and all the best places. We will make sure to use best practices to acquire those ever-necessary 4 and 5-star reviews. We will make sure your AMS ads are serving and achieving a positive ROI, set up your platform and mailing list, and give you the resources to take advantage of everything self-publishing has to offer.

It is my goal to provide independent authors the tools, information, and coaching they need to achieve independent publishing success. Let me know if I can help you.

Warmest Regards and Good Writing,

Shaun

Projects

Eagles - Before The Band

We launched this title around Christmastime.

We were responsible for ARC product promotion, FB advertising, FB content marketing, formatting and layout assistance and advice, copywriting and competitor research and AMS advertising.

Five months after launch, Before the Band is still a Bestseller in its genre!

What Did You Do in the War, Sister?

This was a complete book relaunch & management job, inclusive of arranging and overseeing a new cover design, new layout, re-formatting, new forwards, afterword - a completely new edition.

We oversaw the author's FB campaign, his AMS ads, category placements, BookBub advertising, and a price promotion campaign that sold more than 1200 titles in 7 days. This title is now selling strongly, with in excess of 12000 page-reads per day, and is continually in his genre's best-seller lists.

I am exceptionally proud of this title!

Lady in Ermine — The Story of A Woman Who Painted the Renaissance

This title had been originally traditionally published - but was not making sales.

Our job was to reformat this title for KDP distribution (both print and ebook), to rewrite the descriptions, reconfigure the metadata, SEO, find competitive categories, to manage both FB and AMS advertising, and to relaunch the title.

Since it's re-release, Lady in Ermine — The Story of A Woman Who Painted the Renaissance has been a best-seller and has been in the bestsellers lists of several of our chosen categories - including Historical Italian Fiction.

Respect Training for Puppies

This project was inclusive of the reformatting of 3 titles, Respect Training for Puppies, Respect Training for Adult Dogs, and 11 Things You Must Do Right. In addition to formatting, we were responsible for getting these books online (to Kindle, KDP, Ingram, and D2D), keyword and metatag development, Facebook advertising and the AMS ads platform.

Respect Training for Puppies is currently the #1 New Release in Dog Training.

From the Ashes

A first in its series from a USA Today bestselling author Marion Kummerow's From the Ashes is currently ranking as a #1 New Release, rating top 100 in Historical German Fiction, and top 20 in Historical Russian Fiction.

Unrelenting Series

Currently, the author and I are updating the book covers of this World War II Trilogy. With a new book cover for the first book completed, this series has successfully climbed in its genre in both American and German Amazon stores steadily and is now in the top 50 in Historical German Biographies.

Three Book Relaunch - The Truth About Truly, Finn Again, Letters from the Ledge

Another marketing job turned Production management job.

Task was to take these three titles and get them back on the map. Job included overseeing new cover development, new descriptions, meta-tag and category analysis, social media marketing, back-matter formatting, AMS campaigns, BookBub campaigns and newsletter campaigns.

I took these titles from the 1 Mth ranked in the Amazon store - and brought them to 2-3K. Currently, Finn Again has a Bestseller badge for its category, Truly reached #2, and Letters will launch next week.

Images below show the rise in ranking for this relaunch, as well as the new covers.

Four Book Relaunch - Spite Fences, Fallout, Kinship and Uncommon Faith

Author Trudy Krisher recovered her rights to four previously Trad published Young Adult books. What began as a simple marketing consultation became a production management job - including advising on new covers, formatting, platform and new website development (trudykrisher.com) , meta-tag, and competitive analysis - as well as an overall plan to turn 4 paperbacks into ebooks and new editions of previously published work. Currently, new editions are in ARC. Launch Date: 10/15/2019

The Mystery of Julia Episcopa

The Mystery of Julia Episcopa will be one year old next month. Over this last year,​ it has sold more than 10,000 copies of the ebook, a thousand copies of the paperback and several hundred audiobooks.

We have been happily sitting in the top of our bestseller lists, including Italian Historical Fiction and Religious Historical Fiction. During our promotional periods, we are frequently the #1 Best Seller in our genre.

For this title and these authors, I assist with developmental editing, historical research, and tasks inclusive of layout and design. I oversee their social profiles, their Amazon pages, built their website platform and have curated a strong and active email list.

We are currently working on Book 2 - The Testament of the Scribe - due out in April 2019.

Acqua Morta

"Si​x people, trapped in a crime they didn’t commit, will have to rediscover the fundamental truth that what is done cannot be undone."

Acqua Morta is an Italian supernatural thriller, set in the Dolomite mountains of Northern Italy. I was the projects first developmental editor and saw it through it's Dec. 2018 launch.

The book hit the paid charts almost immediately, but to promote it worldwide, we opted for a 5 day free period before Christmas. During this promotional period, Acqua Morta hit the Italian best-seller lists for all genres in the Italian Kindle store (topping out at #36), as well as #1 in its main genre of 'supernatural thriller'. In addition, we hit #1 in Italian foreign language fiction in the US.

Currently, at full price, the ebook is in the top #20 in all related genres and in the top 5000 of Amazon.it overall.

Shaun is a game changer! I hired her to optimize my book blurbs and was pleasantly surprised when she also took over managing my digital advertising. She's a pro at finding target audiences and writing ad copy that gets results. She does all of this while maximizing the ad budget. I highly recommend her.
