What can a Book Marketing Specialist help you with?
Developing a Marketing Plan
A marketing plan is as vital to your book's marketing success as an outline was to writing it. And your marketing plan should be continuously updated to stay aligned with your goals and take advantage of your marketing successes. When you hire a book marketing assistant, you will receive a customized marketing plan with recommended actions and valuable information you can use TODAY to sell more books.
Arranging Book Signings
Book signings are special moments for any author. Your Book Marketing Specialist will help you schedule these events and coordinate all the important details.
Establishing/Developing your Author Platform
An online platform is vital to your book's success. Your online presence says a lot about you as a person, and it can say a lot about you as an author. Having an internet presence that is tailored specifically to your needs will help you get the word out about your book(s) to a large, targeted audience and give readers valuable ways to find you and buy your book. An author platform includes a website, social networking accounts, and more; and your Book Marketing Specialist will ensure you make the most of this valuable marketing medium!
Following-up with Marketing Campaign Leads
When life gets busy, it’s nice to have someone helping you with the details—like following up with potentially valuable marketing leads. Your Book Marketing Specialist will chase down these leads for you and make sure you get ’em while they’re HOT!
And TONS more!
After your initial 30-minute telephone consultation, your BMS will develop your customized Marketing Plan based upon your goals and budget. What your BMS spends his/her time doing is up to you!
Some words from an author about our marketing services
Kathryn J. KapplerOutskirts Press has been a fantastic experience. I am comparing it with two previous companies I have worked with. Everyone has been extremely knowledgeable, but also very responsive, positive, friendly and helpful. Time frames have been quick and as promised. Your marketing support is also excellent after publishing. I am very impressed with Outskirts and hope to start a new book with them since the last three are now published.
The success of your book now rests on what you do next. How, and how diligently, you market your book will have a huge impact on its success.
As an added bonus, once you purchase a 5-hour block of time with your Book Marketing Specialist, you will receive a TipSheet full of helpful information on how best to utilize the time you have with your specialist.

author of Avoiding Self Imposed Adversities
From the beginning, and throughout the process of publishing my first book, I felt that I was in the hands of a pro. Dana always took the time to answer my questions in detail and swiftly, and if she didn't have 100% confidence, she researched the question and got back to me. I was very pleased with her and I am also thankful that I was paired with her as an Author Rep.

Bridget, as well as the entire Outskirts Press team working with me, are exceptional. They held my hand through the entire process in addition to providing me with welcomed support and encouragement. I am looking forward to our next project together. I have recommended Outskirts Press to several freelance authors in my area. Thank you for making a potentially hectic journey so enjoyable and so satisfying.

I was very happy with my author rep's responses to me. She did a superb job of answering my questions and helping me through the editing process. She was always available when I needed her. I'm delighted with the outcome--my book looks good and it's selling! Thank you.

author of Children: My Heritage - A Testimony
The one-on-one with Lisa was great. Especially the phone call picking out styles, font, cover template etc. She even got a vote on the color. I so wanted to have my daughter's painting as the art work on the cover and she gave me a way to do that. Her guidance helped turn my dream into a reality and sometimes it is still hard to believe until I look at my book. Thank you.

What a blockbuster learning experience I had being a part of self publishing with Outskirts Press! I felt empowered to the next challenge by both Allison and Dana. Their professional guidance and clear instructions when I needed help was crucial to feeling I could tackle the next step. I look forward to the experience with the marketing team. Thanks, Outskirts Press.
