Spiderwize can offer a variety of marketing opportunities. Although being a self-published author means most of the marketing has to come from you, we can certainly give you a push in the right direction:
By far the most effective way to make your book sell is by employing the services of a professional marketing company like Cameron Publicity & Marketing.
Their founder, Ben Cameron, has over 20 years of experience in book promotion, publishing and sales with both traditional publishers and self-published authors. In 2006 he created Cameron Publicity & Marketing to offer to all authors the same marketing services that large publishers benefit from. Ben and his team have worked on hundreds of campaigns for everyone from big publishers to independent authors and on pretty much every subject imaginable. They are book publicists with creativity and experience.
• Over 20 years of experience in book promotion, publishing and sales with both traditional publishers and self-published authors.
• Your book will be presented to television, radio, newspapers, magazines and online media professionals in the UK, Republic of Ireland and worldwide.
• Your book will be read and specific campaigns will be tailored for optimal results.
• Creatively tailored promotional campaigns for non-fiction books, novels and children's books to reach book reviewers, feature writers, journalists, producers and editors.
• Additional book marketing services to help you run your own promotional campaign, including social media, trailers, press releases, covers, NetGalley listings and more.
When your book launches we will promote it to our followers on both Facebook and Twitter. We will also offer a competition for five lucky customers to win a copy of your book. When we send the books out we invite the customer to leave a book review on either Amazon or the Spiderwize Bookshop.
We will tell all of our subscribers that the book is now available and ready to buy. Our newsletter is sent to a targeted audience made up of authors and book lovers who love to hear about our latest releases.
We can provide a fast and efficient printing service for any additional author copies you may require to share with family, friends, reviewers or to sell yourself. We use the best in digital print technology and with no minimum order quantities we can fulfil orders of 1 to 1000. Author copies can be ordered by contacting our publishing assistants.
Using the same digital printing technology, we can design and provide you with all the promotional materials you might need. This will of course be designed with your book cover in mind and we will ensure it fits with the author brand you are trying to build. Just ask your publishing assistant to add this to your publishing package.
Creating that author brand is key; it is what will establish you with your peers and fellow authors. A website gives you an outlet to not only sell your book, but to sell yourself. It is a way for potential customers or press contacts to get in touch, it is a place for you to display reviews and a place to have links to your social media profiles.
To make this process as straightforward as possible we have a selection of website themes for you to pick from; you can then add content, links, pictures and more.
This is a bit of a no brainer really - the first thing someone wanting to find out about you or your book will do is search on Google, so why not have a great website waiting to be found!
Keep up with this latest marketing trend and let our in-house animator create you an eye-catching book trailer video. We offer a variety of book trailer lengths and services. These must-see videos can then be used on your author website and social media outlets.
