Indie Author Book Marketing Support

Authors, I’ve had the pleasure of helping many people with marketing tips and advice including improving ad performance, newsletters, reader engagement, etc. I wanted to offer up a bit more than the usual advice with a few specific services to help my fellow indie authors.

I’ve done well with my indie publishing thanks to my marketing background, and to help others improve their marketing I’ve priced the services I’m offering super low to make them accessible to my fellow starving artists.

I have a very limited amount of availability with my own book writing and client schedule so my calendar will fill on a first come, first serve basis. Jump in early if you think you can benefit from any of the services I’m offering below.

As always, of course, my Facebook messenger is always open so if you just have a general marketing question and need a quick shot of help with something I’m always available for that and that’s always free.

Feel free to share with authors you think might be interested.

If you want to run targeted ads on Facebook I can provide you with a one hour consult to help you better understand how to use Facebook’s ad platform and improve the results of your ads. This would include:

General Marketing Consult

If you have a lot of questions about marketing in general I can provide you with a one hour consult to help answer questions, review strategy, provide insight and direction in specific areas and help you get started with creating a simple, solid blueprint. This could include general consultation around:

Or any other marketing/growth related question you might have

All services and consultations will be scheduled and ideally done via telephone/voice chat but messenger consults are available if preferred. Specific results are never guaranteed but if a campaign fails to perform after a consult I am more than happy to provide an additional consult with you to improve performance at no extra cost.

Booking: If you would like to book any service, please contact me via with the services/help you need and your availability over the next couple weeks. I’ll find the first available time slot, confirm that time with you, and send you an invoice. Services/consultation will not take place until the invoice is paid in full.

Cancellations: You can cancel any booking up to 24 hours before the consult and receive a full refund. Day-of-consult cancellations are non-refundable.

Missed Consultations: If you miss your consultation just reach out to reschedule it with me. No refunds are made on missed consultations
