(And even hit the other bestseller lists, too)

This full-service packages can help you grow an audience and then transform that audience into a book-buying army who will propel your book onto the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestseller lists.

Long after the book campaign, your army will still be there, motivated to buy your products and services.

This service is for authors who want to explode their exposure and are ready to marshal the resources necessary to build a serious campaign that lands their book on one or all of the most prestigious bestseller lists.

These campaigns are for those who realize that it is the author who sells his or her own books, and this requires more than handing a book to a publisher and hoping the book-buying public takes notice. We help authors who want to build their brand and their business by disseminating their ideas and message—and who recognize the need for the level of expertise delivered from the foremost book-marketing company in the world.

These campaigns are ideal for:

  • Coaches who have the ability to consider a business marketing cost that will catapult speakers and information entrepreneurs (or infopreneurs) who make their living selling knowledge, information, insights, and ideas.
  • Philanthropists, provocateurs, various professionals, political leaders, impresarios, and world-changers in general who wish to propel their message out to the widest possible audience through the publication of a highly successful book and the high profile it offers.

This service is your passport to make a name, make a difference, and make a fortune in the world.
