Is your marketing strategy actually a strategy or is it a To-Do list?
Does it outline a timeline, tools and resources for success?
Together, we will demystify your marketing timeline.
One of the biggest questions we receive from authors is “When do I start marketing?” Followed by “And then when do I need to do the rest of the stuff?” And then “What is the rest of the stuff?”
This 90 minute workshop designed to enhance and improve your marketing strategy will provide a look into the major timelines, steps, and actions authors should take to ensure not just the most successful launch, but also a sustainable long-term approach to marketing.
This workshop will lay out all of the major book marketing steps that need to happen in your strategy – from long before launch to a year plus, post launch.
When the workshop is done, you'll have a clear understanding of:
What you need to do to market your book, prelaunch, during launch, and post launch
When you need to do these things to have the maximum impact on marketing
What sort of budget you should have to do these things
How you need to be positioned to complete these marketing activities
What tools you can use to do them

Authors In Media: Marketing Your Book and Message in Media
Mary will be sharing her unique Media I.M.P.A.C.T. Method™ which lays out her strategic step-by-step approach to marketing a nonfiction book successfully in traditional Media.
This webinar will be presented by Authors in Media founder, Mary O'Dohonue.
With 12 seasons on The Oprah Winfrey Show, as a Post Producer and Associate Director, plus years on NBC Nightly News, The Today Show, and Meet the Press, and stints in local TV news and radio, Mary is the definition of a Media Insider.
But her decades of experience in media haven’t all been behind the scenes. Mary is also a bestselling author and parenting expert who has been featured in television, radio, print and online interviews. In fact, a single media interview catapulted Mary’s book When You Say Thank You, Mean It to bestseller status on Amazon in 12 hours, not only becoming #1 in Parenting but also breaking into the top 100 overall out of millions of books.
That’s right – one strategic media interview can turn your book into a bestseller.
As a media insider and bestselling author, Mary is uniquely qualified to teach you how to become the “go-to” expert in Media – and you don’t have to hire a publicist.
Please note – Mary works primarily with NONFICTION authors and the event will be geared to that. Fiction authors may take some great points from this, especially if you have a theme or relevant topics that you can discuss in the media – outside of the fact that you've published a book.
