Welcome to the World of Digital Marketing!
We’ve been waiting for you… Are you ready to dive right in? We sure are!
We are a 100% virtual, international company. We consider our authors and clients our extended family. We envision a publication world where every non-traditionally published author has access to the tools, and the education to use those tools, in order to bring their book life to the fullest.
Our action orientated teams are a truly global group and located in cities across the US and internationally – from Boca Raton to New York, Singapore, Beijing, New Delhi and Guadalajara. We adore our authors, families, pets, laptops and most of all – each other.
We aim to have each team member work in their “happy zone” meaning on projects they are passionate about, in environments of their choosing, and on time schedules that work best for them. Of course that time schedule will meet the needs of our clients as well. Our AMI Support Team is always here to help you and if you have any questions or comments on the above we would love to hear them.
Our team is going to be your support buddy. We are going to push you when you don’t want to be pushed, motivate you to reach out and take what’s yours, test boundaries as well as learn new concepts and how to apply them. Ultimately though we are going to empower you to both predict and create your future.
Now we are going to be very clear about what “we do” versus what we “don’t do”.
We are not going to do all the work for you…
- We are not going to guarantee you your book will sell millions of copies…
- We are not going to tweet, like or re-post for you…(that’s your job)
- We are not your assistant…
- We are not your reason for lack of success…
- We are not your punching bag for when you are having a bad day (although we will cut you a break here and there, smile)
Now what “we do” do is…
- We give you the education and industry knowledge you need to become successful…
- We teach you how to use what you have at your disposal every day to achieve your goals…
- We show you how to use Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, etc as an author and for author-related purposes…
- We provide you with access to experts who can work with you to create professional press-releases, email campaigns and websites to aid in your promotion strategies…
- We help you understand and develop the core digital marketing elements you must have to be competitive to other authors in your niche…
Ultimately we provide you with the support, direction and community you need to be successful with your marketing.
We are giving you the tools to bypass traditional media gatekeepers so you can go straight to the readers.
To be successful with the marketing of your book you must embrace the following elements and make them your “Author Mantra”. You must be committed to “the cause”. Talent alone isn’t enough to get you on a New York Times Best Seller List. It takes motivation and persistence.
Additionally we are going to say this now to get it out of the way (remember honesty and personal voice smile):
If you tell us…
- I don’t have time for marketing I am an author!
- I need to focus on what I do best – writing – marketing is not what I like to do…
- Marketing is your job I am the writer..
Then we will tell you…
- I didn’t realize your book sold almost as many copies as J.K. Rowling ?!
- Oh great! What was the royalty percentage you received on your first 1 million book sales?
- Why should we invest our time and money into your marketing campaigns? Because you say so? So do 80,000 other authors published last year alone.
We are going to be honest with you. No author – unless you’ve hit that critical mass point, your father was a past president or you’re a movie star – is too good for marketing. You wrote the book and that is the first step. Now you have to get your readers to read it and that my friend is the hardest challenge of them all.
Marketing will test you, it will make you want to pull your hair out but it will also give you such a exciting feeling of euphoria it will keep you coming back for more, and more, and more. It is a love-hate relationship with highs and lows. It requires you to invest – not just your time but your capital as well. Marketing is an investment in your future and you need to always think of it that way. You have to be consistent and patient. Never give up. Money follows passion not the other way around.
This is your moment, the industry is ready for you, the foundations have been set before you and now it is time for you decide will you sink or swim? Our AMI Support Team is always here to help you and if you have any questions or comments on the above we would love to hear them.
Our Mission: Our mission is to “Educate & Disrupt”. Simply put we want to empower self-published and digitally published authors to take on the publishing world by storm.
Let’s break it down. You weren’t published traditionally so why on earth would you market traditionally?! It’s a brave new world out there, and if you want it bad enough, there is no doubt you can make your goals a reality. That being said our marketing services and promotion strategies in which we provide to our authors & clients all relate back to these three inter-connected principals:
Education, Tools and Access
- Education – There is nothing more powerful than a well informed author.
- Tools – Without the tools how will you build your platform?
- Access – Alas because we have partnered with several non-traditional publishers we can provide you with the access to decision makers who only engage on the B2B level (Business to Business) when acquiring, listing or endorsing books.
Let’s disrupt the world together! Our AMI Support Team is always here to help you and if you have any questions or comments on the above we would love to hear them.
YOU CAN FIGURE OUT ANYTHING. No matter what the end goal may be – to produce the same results as something you’ve seen or to start something entirely from scratch – we can figure it out together. The internet (umm… Google) is one of the most powerful tools made available to anyone with an internet connection. Google is your free research assistant – use her.
Geographic boundaries no longer exist. Social media allows you to connect with anyone in the world in order to bring your ideas and goals to life.
Never build a product, or service just for the dollar figures you hope to receive. The financial, emotional and self-enlightening profits we all hope to gain stem from Passion. Passion is something no single person or organization can deter or take away from you. Go for projects you fully believe in and sound like fun. If you’re not enjoying your path to success you probably won’t get there.
Listen to your intuition. Trust your gut. Take the big risks when it feels right, but also turn them down when it doesn’t. Your inner self is your most trusted partner – just listen.
Continually Educate. Next to passion, there is nothing more important to your success than continual education. Being an educated author is a strong author.
Care. Care about your readers. Care about your family. Care about those helping you with your work. Ultimately you won’t get to where you want to go without the support these people.
Our AMI Support Team is always here to help you and if you have any questions or comments on the above we would love to hear them.
