Sell more books!

The most common misconception about advertising is thinking that it is designed to sell books. Not only that generic marketing will not work in today’s time, most adverts are not getting the message through the targeted readers.

We have the experience, the people and connection to help you find your audience, connect your books to more readers & retailers.

Connecting the world to meaningful books, ideas and stories.

Blogs give you the opportunity to build reader’s awareness. Being in the blogosphere is more potent than TV sound bites. More dramatic. Less expensive. 

Email Marketing_Services_The BookWalker

This is not the ordinary generic-type email marketing. It’s a 10-drip relationship-building email series sent to pre-identified active subscribers based on your readers psychographics. Let’s build your reader mailing list!

For many readers, receiving texts is their preferred way of communicating. 86% of readers say that SMS is a good way for book promo/offers to get their attention.

APP_Services_The BookWalker

Reach your readers wherever they are, when they want it, when they need it, and just when they want to look for their next read! It’s a forward advertising 24/7, 365.

Placement_Service_The Bookwalker

‘Who’ reads your book matter.  It’s a matter of finding the right ‘ influencer’ to read your book and to ‘influence’ them to ‘talk’ about the book. A highly regarded note to an established ‘contact’ improves the ratings.

The One Pager_Service_The BookWalker

The One-Pager is your optimized microsite. It is your e-commerce platform designed to convert a readers’ inquiry into a purchase.  Managed by a media manager to monitor traffic and conversion. 

How it works

A MANAGED CAMPAIGN. RUNS FOR ONE YEAR. IN STAGES.
The BookWalker | Connecting books to readers
FINDING YOUR READERS

Stage 1

One of the most common mistakes in book promotion is running a marketing campaign when branding is needed and vice versa.  Don’t run a marketing campaign when the intention is to create a brand or run a branding campaign and expect marketing results.

Stage 1 is building your brand. Your brand— is your promise to your readers. It is the emotional resonance that readers will have when they discover your book or hear your name.

Is it important? Discovery is a major issue for every author, even for the heavily funded  and traditionally published books.

88% of book discovery happens online. Discovery means how your readers find your book and then make the decision to buy/read the book. Having visibility leads to book discovery.

Stage 1 is the ‘ anchor down ‘ stage. First, you need to know who your people are, find them, and build relationships. Who are those readers that would align with the book? What would your book mean to them? And how likely would they buy the book? Why? Because not all books are for everyone.

It takes time and effort to define and find who your ideal readers are, but it will be worth it. When you know more about your readers, you’ll be able to easily connect with them in a way that they can relate to. 

We can’t skip this stage.

Stage 1 run time: 3-4 months

READERS & RETAILERS

Stage 2

Stage 2 is a repeat of stage 1 + a pitch to retailers and media influencers.  Retailers & intermediary distributors are interested to know if a book has the coverage and reach. While independent bookstores are a supportive community that genuinely cares about the book industry, they can’t do it all for the love of books. They want to know if the book has the ‘commercial leg.’  What kind of support are they going to get from you for the sell through?

Yes, It’s the bookstore’s job to sell your book, not market it. 

Stage 2 run time: 3-5 months

Stage 3

Stage 3 is a repeat of Stages 1 & 2 + publicist representation.

Now that the stages have been set, the formal work of our publicists can begin. Much of what publicists do is invisible to the authors they work with; a lot of work happens behind the scenes. The publicist’s role is to secure media coverage for your book, drafting pitch letters and tapping their connections in broadcast offices, newsrooms, and socmed. Depending on your genre, those can be newspapers, niche magazines, online publications, retailers, blogs, radio, or even T.V. programs. Our book publicists spend a great deal of time cultivating relationships with critics, acquisition editors, and media influencers.

The value is in the publicist’s media network. Success depends on the quality of the book and the publicist’s ability to ‘sell’ your story— this ‘story’ is not necessarily your book’s. It can be your personal story. Still, it also depends on the publicist’s relationships with the people they’re pitching to. A big part of a their job is cultivating genuine relationships with people in the media, and influencers.

Run time: 6-8 months

We got this covered for you! Six months representation on us.
