BASIC MATERIALS AND MEDIA LAUNCH PACKAGEThis package offers design of a media web site, on-line and print press kit, and a direct mail piece. A marketing plan is created for each title. Also included is an initial mailing of up to 25 books and press kits to reviewers and/or media contacts to begin the process of promotion for your title. Distribution coordination for your title is the third piece of this package. You are responsible for postage and printing costs, as well as web hosting and domain name registration fees.
Your title will be set-up with the Books-in-Print database used by bookstores, major wholesaler Baker & Taylor, and Internet retailers; Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com. You are responsible for title set-up fees with distributors if they apply. The goal for distribution is to have your book available for order through stores, or on the Internet, when publicity hits.
This package is designed for authors who need marketing materials, a conduit open for book orders, and an initial media launch to get the promotion process started. This package can be added to on a monthly basis, but can last up to five months, or until all tasks are completed. Other charges include long-distance phone calls, and express freight, which are billed at cost.
