At Smith Publicity, we understand most publishers have limited budgets for book marketing  services and that every dollar spent must count. We also understand the importance of author marketing and e-book exposure.

We work in two different ways with publishers:
1) Publisher-funded campaigns for one or multiple authors
2) Author-funded campaigns. Publishers recommend us to their authors, who then pay for their own campaigns.

With all of our clients, especially publishers, our goal is to become an invaluable book marketing resource and build long, sustaining relationships. We show publishers how outsourcing book publicity can be an excellent investment and result in increased sales and impressive ROI. Typically, the cost of paying for an internal publicist turns out to be much more expensive than outsourcing book marketing services to us. We work with small and large traditional publishers, university presses, niche/special interest publishers, and e-book only publishers, and have worked with many on a continual basis for years.

As with all of our clients, book sales are ultimately the bottom line for publishers when gauging effectiveness. When working with publishers, our primary goal is to spark awareness for their authors and titles. With persistent media outreach, we also hope to spread the word about our publisher clients and create new business opportunities. In some book publicity campaigns for publishers, we promote a single, high profile title to expand national and international recognition of the publisher.

Test Out Our Book Promotional Services!

We often invite publishers to “test us out” with a short campaign so we can show all that Smith Publicity can do. Inevitably, we demonstrate our value and then continue to work on new titles.

A sampling of our publisher/clients include Plexus Publishing, the publisher of Boardwalk Empire, the bestseller which served as the basis for the hit HBO series of the same name; HarperCollins, The Writer’s Coffee Shop, original publishers of the international literary sensation Fifty Shades of Grey; and Ellora’s Cave, formerly one of the largest independent romance publishers in the world.
