Ron’s Tip of the Day Media Kit

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Throughout the week I will share a tip with you. This is an experiment in microblogging. Let me know how I’m doing. Today I am looking at Media Kit.

Ideas for this Article come from Penny Sansevieri, Author Marketing Experts

During the next few days, I will be writing about:

  • Press Release
  • Author Bio
  • Head shot
  • Book Cover
  • Fact Sheet
  • News Release
  • Release
  • About the Book
  • Labels
  • Collateral material

Penny Sansevieri’s Author Marketing Experts is an organization dedicated to helping authors (new or old) to achieve their marketing goals. She’s written a number of self-help books that are easily read and helpful.

These tips come from her Media Kit in a Box which is loaded with useful information. I recommend you seek her out at authormarketingexperts.com.

So, watch this blog for some useful hints about creating your own Media Kit. And don’t dismiss the topic. If you plan on having tv/radio interviews or plan on placing your book in a bookstore, then a Media Kit is a must.

Ron’s Tip of the Day Planning Ahead

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Throughout the week I will share a tip with you. This is an experiment in microblogging. Let me know how I’m doing. Today I am looking at Planning Ahead.

Are You Planning for When the Country Reopens?

Soon libraries, bookstores, and other outlets for books will start reopening. If we are wise, we are getting ready for that reopening now.

Here is what we are doing:

  • Continuing to write
  • Creating and/or reviewing our media kit
  • Looking for ways to better market our books locally

Continuing to Write

Both Tess and I have used this time to continue working on our books. Unable to do much marketing we’ve focused on what we can do, write. After all writing is our passion, our choice of work. It deserves our attention!

Creating and/or reviewing our media kit

The government is moving toward reopening the country. We can’t do much about that, but we can prepare. One important tool for local marketing is a media kit. Is it up to date? Should I add more information? Is it ready for prime time?

These are questions demanding answers and this is the time to provide them.

Looking for ways to better market locally

Local marketing has many venues to consider. For example, libraries. I am currently reworking some old novels and will need to get them into libraries as soon as possible. But what about the most recent ones? They need to be put in place as well.

Don’t forget bookstores and other book outlets. Plan ahead for these.

Tip of the Day : Plan for the reopening now and be ready to act.
