What is marketing?


Marketing helps sell your book online. You’re a writer, not a marketer – we appreciate that, and we know marketing can seem like a daunting task, but if you see it as a strategic form of sharing it becomes such easier. Let us take the pressure off and help you raise the profile of your book.

Marketing involves everything from:

  • The way you come across on social media,
  • Promoting yourself online,
  • Market research,
  • Reaching new fans on whatever digital medium they are using,
  • Raising customer awareness
  • Email marketing and fan-relationships
  • And much more.

How do you know where to start?

  • Perhaps you’re pretty clued up and already have lots of ideas about things you plan to do in order to promote your book in various places.
  • Maybe you have a couple of social media accounts set up already, but aren’t sure where to go from here.
  • Or maybe just thinking about marketing makes you want to go back to bed for the day!
  • Don’t worry – we can help you.

How does marketing work?


Marketing takes many different forms, and there really is no right or wrong way to go about it. Each campaign we run is different and we create custom campaigns to suit the needs of each of our clients. We’ll talk to you about your book, your fans and your requirements, and we’ll work with you to draw up a bespoke plan based on what you need and want.

We don’t offer ‘off-the-shelf’ packages because we believe that every book is unique and so each marketing plan will be unique too. The plan will depend on various factors such as genre, topic and how much you can – or want to – do yourself.

How much will it cost?


The longer the lead-in time, the more we can help you – four to six months is ideal – but if you want to get your book out sooner, don’t worry.

There is plenty that we can do together in a shorter time. However, so that we can do our best for you, we do ask that you start your campaign  with us for a minimum of four weeks before the release of your book.
