Author Network

The Black Château Author Network is our hallmark service. It includes several must-have services bundled together. This integrated approach helps leverage your exposure and gives you a well-rounded online marketing mix.

Specifically, the Black Château Author Network includes a combination of public relations, social media, content, email, reviews/influencer marketing, SEO and online advertising to propel authors and their books.

This is a turn-key solution that covers the most critical aspects of digital marketing. It is designed to give authors a mini, comprehensive plan that is affordable and acts as the foundation of any online marketing strategy.

Every month the advertising strategy is adjusted. For example, in the first month your book might be advertised as part of an Instagram and Twitter promotion, the next month it could be included in an email campaign and in a Pinterest infographic. This gives you a broader spectrum with which to reach new audiences on different platforms.

Your Book Placed in Monthly Article
