By now, it’s late enough in the year that even the dogwood trees in the deep south are turning color, and up near the 49th parallel our authors are waking up to frost and speculations of a long, cool winter. Best of all, this is the time of year when the air begins to taste like fall––crisp, and loaded with the scents of late-ripening fruits and veggies at the Farmer’s Market down the road, of ozone and woodsmoke, and yes, distinctly of pumpkin spice.
All joking aside, the holiday season is a holiday seemingly created for the sole purpose helping sell things, isn’t it? As the festivities begin to stack up––Columbus Day, Yom Kippur, Halloween, Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah, New Year’s Eve and, finally, New Year’s Day proper––so too do the opportunities to host events, gatherings, giveaways, and other promotions related to your book. It’s so easy to take advantage of the holiday season, it almost feels suspicious. But it isn’t. It’s just a great time of year for everyone to spend a few dimes and pennies of their yearly sock-drawer fund, and a season when sincere generosity can walk hand-in-hand with an effective sales pitch to the cash register.
And what better way to join in the festivities than by opting-in to the 2016 Holiday Marketing Bundle from Outskirts Press? This is a special, limited-time-only, first-come-first-served offer that features:
- An ad in the New York Times. Yes, the New York Times!
- A holiday-themed Book Video Trailer to widen your marketing reach across social media platforms
- Five hours of invaluable time with a Personal Marketing Assistant planning your holiday marketing strategy
- A handy book marketing calendar you can use over the course of the upcoming year
- Amazon optimization
Our lives go absolutely crazy over the holiday season, and that’s one of the primary benefits of electing to use a service bundle like this one: Your life is simply too busy and your work on your next book too important to try and juggle the minutiae of marketing and selling during the holiday season––undeniably the most productive sales season for any product––with the pure and glorious insanity of organizing and attending the entire holiday spread, dogs and children and parents and guests all at once.
Our 2016 Holiday Marketing Bundle is designed with the sole purpose of aiding and abetting you in having your cake (or pumpkin pie) and eating it, too.
There are two more important things to note about this bundle:
- The deadline to order this bundle is October 31st, 2016
- It’s only open to the first 12 authors to sign on, so don’t delay.
