How Local Media Marketing Can Make Your Book Skyrocket (even while self-isolating)

If you’ve done any sort of local media marketing yourself, you know it is often easier said than done. Success typically comes down to perseverance. But success also depends upon contacting the right people at the right time.

Every city has its share of radio stations, and each of those radio stations have on-air personalities for designated blocks of time. Some radio programs are geared exclusively to music. Others, exclusively to news. And still others exclusively to a mash-up of music, entertainment, and listener engagement. Media marketing involves identifying the appropriate people to contact and making those in-roads.

Since you’re a local author in their area, they’re exponentially more likely to be interested than if you send an unsolicited pitch to a national or global program.

Other than radio, every major city also has its fair share of local newscasts and entertainment programs on television. These program producers are constantly on the prowl for unique, original programming featuring someone, or something, of local interest. In much the same manner you located and pitched the radio stations, you’ll identify and pitch the television producers, too.

Do you want more than radio and television exposure? How about city-wide newspapers and/or community leaflets or fliers. Almost all commercial areas from the suburbs to the major cities harbor newsletters, newspapers, coupon periodicals, and the like. And what do you think the chances are that your local community newspaper will write an article about a local author with a published book? We’re betting pretty good! In fact, your local community newspapers should also be one of your very first steps on the road to marketing, but the success rate is so high.

If you’re thinking this sounds like a lot of work, you’re right. But the results can make it worthwhile if you have the patience to do it right. And nowadays, much (if not all of this) can be done remotely via email, chat, and the telephone, making it an effective and safe method of marketing your book, even during COVID-19.

Want even more good news? Outskirts Press offers a Media Marketing Blitz option that does all this for you, and more. Throughout August our authors can receive an instant 10% savings with promo code: mediamarket

Katherine: Cost of Freedom is a love story between a maimed veteran and the experienced, sensitive nurse he falls for.

OP: Why did you decide to write this story?

Katherine: I wrote this book out of a passion for veterans. I am a veteran myself, as was my older brother and our father, who was a World War II colonel. I’ve seen firsthand the suffering war demands of its combatants and perhaps my words will help readers understand the pain.

OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?

Katherine: Seniors, veterans, caregivers and all that feel the passion to help others.

OP: What is special about your book?  

Katherine: The ability to reveal intimate details that only youth, not seniors, expect from a novel of this kind.

OP: What differentiates it from other books in the same category?

Katherine: The intuitive reach this unusual couple experience navigating the challenges presented to each.

OP: Have you published any other books? Do you plan to publish more?

Katherine: My first book, Lavender Moon, was published in March 2020. I currently have three other books in progress, including the sequel to Cost of Freedom (Cost of Freedom: Book Two), along with two psychological thrillers, The Alpha and The Hybrid, both due in summer of 2020.

OP: How can someone learn more about your book or purchase it?

Katherine: My book can be found on Amazon.com, as well as other retailers like Barnes and Noble; there is also a Kindle version, as well.

OP: Thanks for your time, Katherine! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Daughter of a WWII colonel, a Vietnam era veteran, mother of three, grandmother of six and great grandmother of one. As an author I always want my words to convey to the reader the same raw emotions, frailties, love and tears my characters possess.

10 Reasons to Customize Your Marketing Materials this July

Join Outskirts Press in celebrating our very own “Customized Marketing Month” this July with 10 great reasons to create personally-branded promotional materials to help you market your book with professionalism and success.

1. Every author needs a business card to include in press kits and at author events. What better way to promote your book and yourself at the same time than with professionally designed and personally branded business cards that feature your book’s cover on one side and your contact/sales information on the other?
2. Custom bookmarks are a wonderful promotional item to pass out because people rarely throw them away; they actually keep them, use them, and see them over and over! Take advantage of that marketing opportunity by ensuring that those promotional bookmarks promote your book in a customized and professionally-branded way.
3. Posters serve two unique purposes that other promotional materials cannot. They’re great for book signings and other events where you need some large presentation pieces framed upon your table or hanging from your “space” to draw attention to your book. Additionally, posters are great for framing and hanging on the wall in your home and/or office. Between a framed movie poster and a framed poster of your own book cover, we know which we would recommend for available wall space. Talk about motivational!
4. Postcards are the most effective direct mail piece because they require a lower postage rate, offer a high-quality presentation of your cover, and contain book and ordering information on the reverse side, all presented in a customized promotional way that everybody is already accustomed to receiving in the mail.
5. If you have a professionally designed custom cover (and if you received one with Outskirts Press, we’re already betting that you do), customized promotional materials offer a beautiful way to showcase your book’s artistry in a variety of highly-effective ways.
6. To celebrate “Customized Marketing Month” you can save 10% instantly on 500 customized bookmarks with the promotion code bookmarksave through July 11 if you’ve published with Outskirts Press.
7. Continue celebrating “Customized Marketing Month” with Outskirts Press between July 12-18, and Outskirts Press authors can receive an instant 10% discount on 500 custom business cards with the promotion code: buscards
8. July 19-25 is the week Outskirts Press authors can save 10% instantly on your very own customized postcards (500 count) with promotion code: postcards.
9. The last week of “Customized Marketing Month” (July 26-31) brings an instant 10% discount to Outskirts Press authors who order 25 small posters that feature the front cover of your book. Simply enter promotion code smposters at check-out.
10. Would you rather get everything you need all at once and save even MORE in the process? The Promotional Materials Bundle combines all of the above customized marketing materials into one truly sweet suite of promotional goodness for a bundled discount. And all July long you can save an additional 10% with promotion code: promomater
