Do you know how to develop a book marketing plan or even what should be included in it? Do you have the time and know-how to snag and schedule book signings? Are you confused about when, where and how to implement these and other elements of your book marketing plan? Let your Personal Marketing Assistant do the heavy lifting for you!

What can a Personal Marketing Assistant help you with?

  • Developing a marketing plan

    A book marketing plan is as vital to the marketing of a book as an outline is to the writing of it. And a marketing plan must be continuously tweaked to stay aligned with your goals. 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, and for book fans. Your book marketing assistant will help you schedule these events and coordinate all the important details.

  • Developing your author platform

    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 fine-tune your image, 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. Your author platform includes a website, social networking accounts and more. Your Personal Marketing Assistant will ensure that you make the most of this valuable marketing medium!

  • Following-up on marketing campaign leads

    When life gets busy, it's nice to hand off the little details to someone else--like following up with potentially valuable marketing leads. Your book marketing assistant will chase down these leads for you and make sure you get 'em while they're HOT!

  • Tons more!

    After your initial 30-minute telephone consultation, your PMA will develop your customized Marketing Plan based upon your goals and budget. What your PMA spends his/her time doing is up to you!

Some words from an author about our marketing services

Outskirts 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.
