I am a long time lurker on these amazing forums and believe I have learned valuable information not easily gained elsewhere. So a big Thank you all to start with.
I would like to get some advice on a particular venture I am embarking on that may prove to be the best yet for someone like me. As short and clear as I can currently describe the question,
I would like to help market, expose, and get a following, for an Author that I believe is worth the effort. They have published 4 books 3 are the first Trilogy of a series that #4 is soon to be out (being proofed and edited currently). If possible I would like to get the author and books to get exposure and hopefully sales.
My main question is, would it be best to create new web sites, domains or sub domain and ad pages for a campaign like this or, would it be better to market and drive traffic to the authors site and product pages already out? I do not currently have an excess of time and would be willing to outsource if the option is appropriate.
Would it be best or more bang for the buck so to speak to, separate out aspects in getting the social marketing going, then get articles or review’s sourced or work with a package deal offering?
Would having the author do a onetime sale or special offer of sorts be worth investigating early on? Or try and find some popular reviewers or bloggers to post about the books first?
And lastly would it be the better option to buy a package or service offering from one of the excellent offerings in the Warrior Forum? There are a few that interest me but due to the multitude of excellent information and available choices it has been tough to narrow down or determine where to start.
I will be happy to provide links if that is allowed but the first book in the series is called
The Spire of Kylet.
Thank you for any input or advise.
