Why Authors Still Need Professional Book Marketing Support

The digital revolution of self-publishing has empowered many self-published authors to promote their own books in creative, low-cost ways. Innovative eBook pricing programs, for example, enable an author to self-promote at virtually no cost. Likewise, social media has emerged as a viable and often effective way to build a personal brand and connect with potential book buyers. Most book marketing experts agree, however, that digital book promotion and social media usually aren’t “stand-alone” ways to effectively promote a book, but rather excellent tools to augment traditional book marketing.

The amazing self-publishing and self-promotion stories that we read about make big news splashes precisely because they are special and unusual, i.e. so few authors “make the big time” solely through their own efforts, it’s newsworthy when one does. The vast, vast majority of phenomenal bestsellers and literary sensations are the result of a combination and convergence of various things including professional publicity support, aggressive, energetic and engaging authors who self-promote through social media and, of course – an excellent book. Carefully structured and implemented campaigns by book marketing experts who have the connections, resources, and expertise – in addition to motivated self-promoting authors – are usually the reasons self-published books become huge successes. For traditionally published books, the sheer name recognition and power behind major book publishers can propel a book into the sales stratosphere.

While an ambitious author can do many things on their own, they cannot perform them as efficiently, strategically or powerfully as a publisher or book marketing firm.  Access, experience, and contacts are key – and most authors don’t have these.

Traditional publishing still offers various advantages over self-publishing. Every significant publisher, for example, has a sophisticated distribution program that opens doors to on-shelf placement of books. Navigating the complex world of book distribution is beyond the means of most authors. In addition, having a household name imprint on a book cover can itself open doors to sales. While publisher budgets vary by the size of the publishing house and the track record of the author, publishers can still bring a great deal of clout and power to a book marketing campaign.

Even the large publishers often work with book marketing firms to work with their authors. This can include aggressive national media outreach as well as organizing book  tours, book signings, and trade show representation. They often are tasked with following up on requests for books, sending out review copies, setting up blog tours, and creating video book trailers.

In addition to the experience and connections, book marketing firms are structured to work with individual authors as well as publishers to create and execute all other aspects of a comprehensive book marketing plan. These firms can adeptly handle and customize everything from book signing/event support to interview preparation, media coaching and beyond. They also have the ability to provide the personal attention to maximize the effectiveness of social media as a book marketing tool.

Every author must remember that they are the brand, and are therefore integral to maximizing the effectiveness of the efforts of a publisher or book marketing expert.

  50. Schöne ruhige 1-Zimmer Wohnung / Küche / BAD / WC / SAT-TV / Internet / Waschmaschine Im Grünen gelegene, komfortable, am Ende einer Sackgasse, helle ruhige 1-Zimmerwohnung mit separatem, eigenem Eingang. Die Wohnung wurde im Mai 2018 komplett renoviert und Neu eingerichtet. Parkplatzmöglichkeiten gibt es auf der öffentlichen Straße und sind in der Regel immer vorhanden. Die Wohnung hat einen 40 Zoll Sat-TV, eine Waschmaschine, sowie Internet (Wlan) gegen eine kleine Gebühr. Ein Bügeleisen und Bügelbrett sind ebenfalls forhanden. In der Küche finden Sie neben einem Backofen mit Cerankochfeld, eine Geschirspülmaschine, einen Kühlschrank mit 4-Sterne Gefrierfach, eine Kaffeemaschine ,Wasserkocher sowie einen Toaster. Der Schoko- “laden“ Werksverkauf der Weltberühmten Marke Ritter Sport sowie das Ritter Museum und das Ritter Museums-Café erreichen sie nach ca. 450 Meter bzw. 6 Minuten zu Fuß. Für Naturliebhaber lädt der schöne Schönbuch-Wald direkt vor der Haustüre zu Spaziergängen oder Wanderungen ein.

Nach Böblingen sind es ca.14 km, nach Tübingen ca. 19 km und zur Messe Stuttgart ca. 12 km. Idyllisch im Tal gelegen strahlt Waldenbuch heute mit seinen Fachwerkhäusern, Brunnen und Staffeln im historischen Altstadtkern einen ganz besonderen Charme aus. Sowohl die Stadtkirche St. Veit mit ihrem 36 Meter hohen Kirchturm als auch das wunderschöne Schloss begeistern die Gäste. 24h Check-In nach Absprache möglich Lebensmitteldiscounter wie Lidl, DM-Drogerie-Markt, Penny Markt und Getränkemarkt erreicht man zu Fuß in ca. 5 bis 20 Minuten.
