Smith Publicity, the most prolific book marketing agency in the publishing industry, will soon promote its 3,000th author. To celebrate this milestone, the company is offering $5,000 in free publicity services to the lucky author who signs on for services, and brings the number to 3,000.
“This is a huge accomplishment for Smith Publicity,” says CEO Dan Smith. “In 2017, we celebrate our 20th anniversary of promoting authors, books and publishers, and to be nearing 3000 clients is humbling and exciting for us. We want to celebrate it and honor that client.”
Given current trends, Smith expects the company to reach the 3,000th client sometime in March, 2017.
“We can't know for sure,” adds Smith, “but it appears it will happen early in the year.”
How will it all work?
As authors engage the firm’s services, the one who signs up for what is the 3,000th client will be immediately notified. The winner will be able to choose from Smith’s array of services, up to $5,000, and or can apply the $5,000 to more services. The author’s publicity campaign or service will be implemented as usual.
“We have a wide range of services that cost anywhere from $350 to long-term, monthly retainer-based, full service comprehensive campaigns,” notes Smith. “So the 3,000th author will win some valuable free services. It’s a significant award.”
