1. Why do I need a marketing consultation?
Planning your book marketing campaign is as important as writing your book. Distribution is the first step in getting your book ready for book sales and marketing is what will drive your sales. Our marketing consultants specialize in marketing for authors. We will work with you to help with your strategy, creating a customized campaign just for your book and budget.
2. How does the marketing consultation work?
Once we have received your paperwork and payment for this service, we will send you a pre-consultation questionnaire, just a few basic questions about what your goals are and where you want to go. Then we’ll schedule a phone call with you to learn more about your title and your goals. Following the call, we’ll put together a marketing plan for you and then schedule a follow-up call to review. Everything is customized for your book.
3. Should I have a marketing consultation if I don’t have much of a marketing budget?
Absolutely! If you’re an author on a budget, this is one of the best investments you can make. We’ll provide you with a plan that includes DIY (Do-it-yourself) options and then include other options that you can consider down the line.
4. What if I do not have email?
Infinity Publishing uses emails to correspond with all of our authors. There are many free email service providers like Google.com and Yahoo.com. If this is a problem for you, please call us to make other arrangements. Additional fees may apply.
5. Do I have to purchase a publicity kit to get the marketing consultation?
You do not have to purchase a publicity kit with the marketing consultation. The marketing consultation service is tailored for each author. This is a separate service from any printed marketing materials packages we offer.
6. Is one of the suggestions going to be to purchase other marketing services?
Yes, this is a possibility. The first initial consultation will dictate what direction the market plan will go. Infinity Publishing offers an extensive menu of marketing services and if they suit the needs of the author, we will provide that information as a resource. The author is not obligated to make any additional purchases. The marketing plan includes a plan for the author to execute on their own.
7. What if I do not like the suggestions made by the marketing team?
The marketing plan and strategy provided to the author will be designed following the initial phone call consultation. The recommendations will be made by a book marketing professional, who has the knowledge of where and how an author should be marketing. We will provide the author with a marketing plan and strategy to use as they see fit. If there needs to be any adjustments, that can be discussed in the follow-up call.
This is a marketing service and with any marketing service, there is no guarantee of book sales.
