How It Works

A managed campaign. Runs for one year. In stages
DISCOVER WHY READERS AND RETAILERS LOVE US
tage 1 The BookWalker Book Ad Campaign

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 about building your brand and finding your readers. 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. Stage 1 is where we build your reader’s mailing list.

Stage 1 is the ‘ anchor down ‘ stage. First, you need to know who your people are, find them, and build relationships. This is understanding the psychographics of your readers. 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.  We can’t skip this stage.

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 requires time to define and find who your ideal readers are, but it will be worth it. When you know more about your readers, you can genuinely connect with them in a way they can relate to your book’s message. We can’t skip this stage.

Run time: 3-4 months

Stage 2 The BookWalker Book Ad Campaign

It’s the bookstore’s job to sell your book, but not to market it.  What kind of support are they going to get from authors for the sell through? Stage 1 builds the support retailers needed.

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.  We need to support them too! Stage 2 is where we continue to grow your reader’s mailing list.

Run Time: 3-6 months

Stage 3 The Book Ad Campaign Version (1)

Now that the stages have been set, the formal work of our publicists can begin. 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.

Stage 3 is a repeat of Stages 1 & 2 + publicist representation.  Much of what publicists do is invisible to the authors they work with; a lot of work happens behind the scenes.  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.

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. 

Run Time: 6-8 months
