To get media exposure, we will pitch your book to all types of media outlets: newspapers, magazines, TV, radio, websites, and blogs. A pitch is an email that is sent to the media (journalists, producers, reporters, bloggers, radio show hosts, etc) to promote your book. It usually includes a short synopsis of your book, cover image, background on you as the author, and the opportunity to review your book, interview you, publish an excerpt, host a giveaway, or receive a guest post.
Book Publicity Services has an extensive database with thousands of media contacts in a broad range of subject areas, including: art, entertainment, business, finance, education, fashion, beauty, food, politics, health, real estate, religion, sexuality, self-help, family, science, sports, technology, travel, and more. We have relationships with the most powerful news outlets like USA Today, Huffington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and CNN, as well as bloggers and local newspapers nationwide.
We will pitch your book to the media contacts that are the best fit to reach your target audience. You will be notified of all contacts that express interest in your book, and we will coordinate all press placements. Media coverage includes book reviews, giveaways, spotlights, excerpts, feature articles, interviews, and other types of press placements to promote your book.
Press Release Writing & Distribution
Press releases provide the media with the information they need to write a news story. A press release can announce a newsworthy event such as a book signing, book reading, new book release, blog tour, celebrity endorsements, sponsorships, price changes, etc. We will write and distribute 1 search engine optimized (SEO) press release per month to promote your book. A press release can help generate media coverage, increase traffic to your website, improve your ranking in search engines, and attract new customers. For maximum exposure, we will distribute your press release to national television, radio, print and online media outlets, search engines (Google, Yahoo!, Bing, etc.), all major online news sites (Yahoo! News, ABC News, Star Tribune, Newsday, CNN, etc), and post it on top press release distribution sites (SBWire, 24-7PressRelease, OnlinePRNews, etc). Our press releases typically get posted on 200+ news sites, which will help increase your online visibility significantly.
We will promote your book on social networking sites such as Facebook, GoodReads, Shelfari, Amazon, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, LinkedIn, etc. We will frequently post on social media sites in order to get the word out about your book, increase your online presence, and increase book sales.
Book Speaking Tours
"What initially attracted me to Kelsey's PR services is that she was very specific on what she would do, as well as having experience promoting books and music. She was very clear and upfront about what was involved in each level she offered, which I really appreciated. I was also very happy with the level of responses Kelsey achieved from the media pitching for my book. I am quite convinced this was so much more than I would have been able to achieve as a lone author without her help. I recommend Kelsey very highly and found her services truly invaluable."
