Publicious Book Marketing

Publicious has teamed up with RM Marketing Services

For most authors new to publishing, marketing can be a bit of a mystery or an overwhelming part of the process they've been dreading. Like all aspects of self-publishing it's important to understand that self-publishing doesn't mean you have to do everything yourself. There is help out there for every aspect of your publishing journey, including marketing.

Although the successful author will need to learn the in and outs of self-marketing, the hardest step is getting started, finding the right marketing model for their individual needs and the right people to work with. A consultation with an experienced book marketing specialist will be a great place to start. 

Rachael has been in the book industry for over 30 years in a variety of product, sales, marketing and senior management roles. She has spent time on both sides of the fence — working primarily in academic and professional publishing, as well as a long stint in library supply where she managed publisher relations for the print, digital and multimedia supply chain as well as a trade distribution business. Rachael was the face of the James Bennett/Nielsen Bookdata joint venture for many years in the mid-2000s and has worked with Blackwell Book Services and Baker & Taylor/YBP on their retail and digital projects in the ANZ region. As a publisher relations manager for close to two decades, she has worked with thousands of publishers and distributors globally.

In 2014 Rachael launched RM Marketing Services. The business provides outsourcing solutions for publishers (predominantly in sales and marketing), as well as consulting services for authors, publishers, distributors, library vendors  - locally and internationally. Through her business, she is also the ANZ contact for publishers for ProQuest’s Ebook Central and teaches the Book Marketing and Sales unit at the University of Sydney.

Book/Author promotion tools:

The Tiger Chase Poster

Book Signing Poster

Supplying in advance a professional poster to the venues where you have book signings or workshops etc, scheduled is a great way of advertising your event and creating interest during the days leading up to it. You'll notice the blank rectangle at the bottom of the sample on the left, this is optional but is a good idea for adding the time and date of the event with a marker by hand. Just let us know if you don't require this option.

We'll create the design using the images of your choice (3D book cover perhaps) and supply it to you as a printable PDF that can you can take to your local copy shop, printers or Office Works etc, where you can print as many copies as you like whenever you need them. This will save you having to purchase large quantities and have them lying around.
