Parker, CO (PRWEB) October 12, 2010
Outskirts Press, the fastest growing self-publishing and book marketing company, announced today it is offering all authors their own Personal Marketing Assistants, regardless of where their book was published. Personal Marketing Assistants work with authors by phone and e-mail to help them define a clear list of goals and objectives, craft the appropriate steps to achieve those goals and assist with the necessary steps, thereby helping increase sales of their books.
While it has always been true that writers must also be salespersons for their books, never has that been more true than in today’s competitive publishing market. Successful promotion of one’s book requires time, industry and ingenuity; most writers now find they need help in marketing their books.
Outskirts Press’ professional Personal Marketing Assistants all have strong marketing backgrounds and years of experience helping clients market their products. Award winning pianist, composer, author and radio personality Sally Shields, for instance, is an Outskirts Personal Marketing Assistant whose own book is a perennial bestseller on amazon.com. Another Outskirts Personal Marketing Assistant, Caroline Moore, has a long corporate communication history in developing and writing advertising strategies and campaigns.
“My Personal Marketing Assistant worked with me on a particular aspect of my marketing strategy. She was great!” says author Alvin Ureles. “I went from asleep at the switch to back on the trail thanks to this option.”
Ureles’ book, Following Joe, became a top ten Outskirts Press bestseller in the month following his purchase of the Personal Marketing Assistant option.
The option is offered in five hour blocks and the consultation and advice is always tailored specifically to a particular author’s work. By avoiding a generic cookie-cutter marketing approach, successes like those of Sally Shields and Alvin Ureles can regularly be achieved by authors with the help of Outskirts Press Personal Marketing Assistants.
