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.
One book title placement in at least one article per month. Articles match a strategized editorial calendar that coincides with current trends, consumer reading habits and seasonal buying patterns.
The articles are promoted natively on sites like:
- Dangerous Minds
- Bored Panda
- The Guardian
- Plus over 1200 other websites, apps and forums
Additionally, articles are advertised and promoted organically across multiple platforms, including, but not limited to:
- Display and retargeting
- Email newsletters
Your book will be offered to a list of over 4,000 members of the press, as well as social media influencers, reviewers, and bloggers. They are routinely sent tip sheets and may request: interviews, author Q&As, to publish excerpts and/or to receive hard copy or electronic versions of your book to review.
Our book reviewers and influencers are an elite network and frequently have large followings on one or more of these platforms:
- Their own blog/website/e-zine/podcast
