Day 18 – Who’s your perfect marketing partner?

Marketing partner (OK, this was the only picture I had to do with market!)

Day 18 prompt is:

Who would be the perfect person/company/organization to partner with to sell your book? It might be another author, a performer, a shop owner, a seminar facilitator, a teacher, etc. Pretty much, the answer to this question is limited only by your imagination. How will you reach out to that person/company/organization? What’s the hook for your pitch?

The answer to this question depends on the book!

For my Green Oaks Primary School series, my perfect partner includes schools and libraries so I can get the book in the hands of primary school kids. Though for 3… 2… 1… Done! my perfect partner includes cubing shops. It’s already stocked in one store!

Ideally, my books would be sold to libraries, including school libraries. I have been reaching out by getting to know librarians and then they order copies of my books! I also have the opportunity for people to buy a second book that can be donated to schools and libraries.

There is plenty that I could do to reach out in a larger way, but it comes down to time.

Right now, the limited time I have is mostly spent on writing a new story or two!

  1. I love the idea of ordering a second book to give away. Brilliant.
