Are you interested in getting more local media and worldwide exposure for your book? Outskirts Press can help. We are excited to introduce our new Media Marketing Blitz to all our published authors–a comprehensive and laser-focus marketing service that is specifically tailored to introduce (or reintroduce) your book to the media in 2020. Global platforms will be included (like influential bloggers with a worldwide audience), but the Media Marketing Blitz is customized to your immediate vicinity, where your odds for media success and traction are much higher.
- Local news stations? Check.
- Local & community newspapers? Check.
- Local and regional radio stations? Check.
- Local community outreach and speaking/training opportunities? Check.
After your initial one-on-one personal consultation with your Specialist, we will hand-select, and contact on your behalf, the applicable opportunities listed above as well as specific influential bloggers around the world who we feel have a high probability of either interviewing you or writing about you and/or your book. Don’t worry! Book Blitzing means we do all that heavy lifting for you!
Here are the personal services you receive with your Media Marketing Blitz:
- 5 hours of personal marketing assistance with a professional, experienced Book Marketing Specialist, which includes a 30-minute 1-on-1 Strategy Session (typically via telephone).
- Researching, vetting, and contacting up to 10 local media and/or event opportunities in your area
- Follow-up with each local media outlet
- Researching, vetting, and contacting influential blogs related to your book’s subject matter for a book review, author interview, or other online event (we guarantee at least two blog “appearances” but it’s not usual to receive many more)
- Digital “Clipping Service” that automatically notifies you every time your book is mentioned online
- Promotion of your success on our aggregated social media network (all you have to do is let us know!)
Here are the actionable deliverables you receive with your Book Blitz:
- A Custom Press Release, including worldwide distribution
- A Custom Sales Sheet
- Personal 90-day local book marketing calendar customized to your area
- A Digital Downloadable Edition of your book to include in digital press kits
- Additional contacts/opportunities to reach out to above and beyond who your Strategist contacted personally
- Email and letter templates for use contacting those additional opportunities after your Media Marketing campaign has ended
- A personal, customized “Author Interview” and “Blog Post” that you can share in its entirety for the convenience of additional bloggers you discover
Authors engaging the services of one of our Marketing Specialists with the purchase of this option can expect an intensive amount of time being spent by the Specialist. As such, reservations are limited and are only available on a first-come, first served basis until our Specialists’ calendars are full.
