The average costs for professional book publicists range from $2,500 to $8,000 per month. YouDoPR empowers authors to do many of the things a professional publicist would do at a fraction of the cost.
Cherry Hill, NJ (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
Designed as a low-cost book marketing option for both self-published and traditionally published authors as well as publishers, http://www.YouDoPR.com recently went fully functional after almost a year of development. The first of its kind, YouDoPR is a comprehensive do-it-yourself online book publicity service providing an array of book marketing options including:
- Automated press release distribution using customized lists
- Updated media lists for virtually every type of book and topic
- Genre-specific sample professional press releases and media pitches
- Member discounts for a wide range of publishing vendors
- Author community with forums and chat
- Automated social media postings
- Helpful articles on a wide range of book marketing topics
Developed by book marketing pioneer Dan Smith, http://www.YouDoPR.com offers three levels of membership including free lifetime, basic and premium. Costs for basic and premium memberships are $49 and $99 per month respectively, with no long-term commitment.
“The average costs for professional book publicists range from $2,500 to $8,000 per month,” says Smith. “YouDoPR empowers authors to do many of the things a professional publicist would do at a fraction of the cost.”
YouDoPR.com members have already reported impressive results. The very first author to sign up received interest from a national TV show from a http://www.YouDoPR.com press release distribution.
“Members can also instantly recoup their modest investment in YouDoPR by taking advantage of vendor discounts, such as the popular Combined Book Exhibit (CBE) trade show book marketing representation service,” adds Smith. “Signing up for just one or two shows through our discounted price with CBE more than covers the cost of a monthly premium membership.”
“The bottom line: Through YouDoPR, authors can in fact get media interested in their books just as a book marketing firm or professional book publicist would do, and save thousands and thousands of dollars. It’s already happening.”
