About Us – Book Marketing Company

About Smith Publicity

Founded in 1997, Smith Publicity has evolved from a one-person operation run in a bedroom office to one of the leading book publicity agencies in the world. Founder Dan Smith’s goal for the company was to offer unparalleled customer service and work to exceed, not simply meet, client expectations. This fundamental principle of Smith Publicity's book promotion services resonated with clients, and over 20 years later, we’ve worked with thousands authors and publishers, as well as entrepreneurs,       consultants, publicly-held companies, and businesses in many industries.
