Marketing Company

When is it time to find a marketing company for yourself and your books? I don’t know, but I think I might be there.

I have a BS in Business with emphasis in Information Systems so I think I have a better than average social media presence. I have websites, Facebook sites, YouTube accounts, a twitter account and…

However, maybe I’m not doing the right thing or enough of the right thing. Regardless, I’m tired of guessing.

Now where do I go?

I’m going to start by reading some articles on marketing authors. Here’s some of the first articles I’m going to read:

Penny Sansevier

Penny Sansevieri 

Lynn McGinnis, Book Marketing Coach

Then, I’m going to check in with SCORE (Business Mentors) San Luis Obispo.

If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment.

Tech Guy on YouTube

I’ve been trying to change the footers on all my sites, for some time. I managed to put what I wanted on the footer, but I was having problems with having them link where I wanted. This is something that was very easy to me a couple of years ago, but something changed in the code.

Next Book Projects

I’m working on three projects at the same time. I think it will be easier to do several books at once since they are all fairly far along in the process. Also, I tend to forget how to do something if it’s been a long time since I’ve done it.

I still have the following to do:

Working with cover artist on new design or finalizing a design

Final arrangement of the interior

Ordering proof copies

Getting several editors to review book

When all of the above has been completed, then I will:

Put the books on Amazon and Kindle

The upcoming books are This ‘n’ That Poetry, Meow Poetry and a book on blogging ideas which I haven’t decided on a name for it, yet.

I just got back from a much-needed vacation.

I visited my sister and her family and then I flew down to John Wayne airport, rented a car and headed for a hotel near Disneyland.

My dear writer and artist friend, CB Taylor (Mousewords) met me there and we spent the next three days enjoying Disneyland, visiting another friend, Jim Leonard, and travelling home via the train.
