Book Marketing Matters

You've written your book, spent hours getting your prose perfected, and sweated over every detail, making your book the best it can be.

Excited, you hit that publish button on Amazon, sit back, and wait…

But nothing happens.

Your book is live, but no one is buying, reading, or reviewing it.

You need to do something, anything, to help readers find your book. You've worked too hard to just watch your book fail.

It's a sad fact that it's the best marketed, not best written, books that are the most successful.

But it's still a fact.

Here at BubbleCow, we can help you to market your book in a way that will attract new readers.

We can help your book become the success it deserves.

Ask yourself…

  • Are you selling fewer copies than your book deserves?
  • Are you unsure where to begin when it comes to marketing your book?
  • Are you clueless as to what changes to make so that your book has the best chance of being a success?
  • Are you worried you're losing potential readers as they struggle to learn more about you and your book?
  • Do you even know how to attract new readers and then how to make them become fans?
  • Are you baffled as to why your social media and website aren't attracting new readers?

Our Author Platform Audit will provide you with everything you need to help fix your author platform, clean up your online identity and produce social media content that will turn followers into readers and fans.

It's simple; follow our plan and make your book a success.

What the Audit Includes

Our Author Platform Audit will see a marketing expert assess your current author platform and determine what is working and what will need to be changed.

We will show you how to link up all elements of your author platform so that you can turn followers into book buyers.

The audit will look at four critical elements:

  • Your social media.
  • Your Amazon page and Amazon author page.
  • Your online properties (website, blog, etc.).

Don’t worry if you’re not doing all these things; we’ll provide clear advice on why they are important and what you can do to get started.

We will look closely at each of these four online properties and provide you with a document containing clear instructions for what is working and what needs to be changed.

This comprehensive document will contain simple and easy-to-apply instructions.

Social Media

It is very easy to believe that social media is the magic bullet to book marketing success, but this is not the case.

Though social media is important, it is only one element in your overall author platform.

During our audit, we will assess each of your social media platforms and assess the following:

  • Is your social media output consistent and addressing potential readers?
  • Is your social media voice suitable for the books you are selling?
  • Is there a clear path from your social media to your Amazon page?

This assessment will provide you with a list of the key areas that require improvement. It will also give you a clear roadmap for what you must change to make your social media more effective.

Amazon

Many writers ignore the importance of their Amazon page, believing all the hard work has been done in getting potential readers to the page in the first place.

This is not the case.

Our audit of your Amazon page will assess the following:

  • Is your genre correctly assigned?
  • Is your book title meeting genre expectations?
  • Is your book cover meeting genre expectations?
  • Is your blurb providing a hook to attract potential readers?
  • Is your author page effective?

The audit will create a list of actions that you need to take to improve your Amazon page.

Online Properties

Our audit begins with a comprehensive examination of your online properties.

We will examine any book-related website, blog, and other relevant online properties.

We will look at each of these properties and ask the following questions:

  • Are you presenting a clear and cohesive message across all web properties?
  • Is there a clear path for potential readers from your web properties to your Amazon page?
  • Are you targetting and engaging with the correct readers?
  • Do you have a system to 'capture' potential readers?

If you have a blog or website, we will also conduct an SEO audit. This will look at...

  • Any technical problems that may be inhibiting your ranking in the Google search engine.
  • An assessment of your key pages, the keywords bringing traffic, and potential new keywords you could target.
  • An overview of future strategies to improve organic traffic to your site.

In addition, the SEO audit will provide your site's Authority Score, the number of backlinks, estimated organic traffic, top organic keywords, the intent of visitors, and your main organic competitors.

The audit will also provide a list of key actions to improve your position within the Google search engine.

"This was far the best and easiest editing process that I have been through. Gary’s editing took my book to the next level.

I am delighted with the outcome and I will definitely use Bubblecow to edit my next novel. Highly recommended."
