Suspense, Espionage and Paranormal Author
Lisa Pietsch is a U.S.A.F. veteran, a multi-published novelist and freelance writer, a social media marketing consultant, managing editor for five content rich online communities and several online and print newsletters, the Co-Founder and Managing Editor of SAXtreme Magazine (www.saxtreme.com), an aspiring figure competitor (www.xtremetransformations.com) and the mother of two boys. She has an A.S. in Business Management from the University of Maine and has been immersed in social media marketing for the past eight years. She has a passion for foreign languages, travel and hot guys with guns. Lisa currently lives in the Hill Country north of San Antonio, Texas.
When her first novel, The Path to Freedom, was published in electronic formats in 2008, Lisa realized her marketing efforts would need to take a left turn at traditional and become largely electronic as well. Since then, she has developed tools and handbooks that teach authors and small press publishers how to market their books and their brands without breaking the bank. She is available for both workshops and private consulting.
You have fantastic authors, talented editors, beautiful covers, and books galore, but low sales to show for it. You are buying ads in all the right magazines and websites but nothing really seems to be paying off. The expense of buying more advertising is killing your bottom line. You expect your authors to bring in more readers but nobody seems to be doing much of anything except tapping your business investment.
Let me show you how to establish a dynamic marketing program that can be put on auto-pilot to increase sales, build a successful company brand and fan base, and inspire author loyalty that will pay off in spades. Email me at LMPietsch@gmail.com for a free analysis of your current marketing program and information on how I can help you improve your return on investment.
Your writing time is being swallowed up by your networks. You are blogging, keeping your website information up to date, updating your Facebook profile, building a Facebook Fan Page, Tweeting, trying to update your Goodreads and MySpace pages and wondering where any of it is really getting you besides sucking away quality writing time. Then you have to answer emails, read books to stay on top of your craft, write books so that you can have something to sell to all the people you’re building relationships with on your networks and pitch those books to publishers. You need a 50-hour day to get it all done.
You need to know where your social networking is taking you and you need to stop the constant time suck. Email me at LMPietsch@gmail.com for a free analysis of your networks and information on how I can help you improve their return on your time investment.
