Yale SOM Leadership Strategies in Publishing Alum, In-demand Award-Winning Publisher, Founder & CEO @ PublishYourGift.com. I teach authors how to create, package and monetize their content to achieve fast breakthroughs in Bookpreneurship by transforming their books into profitable products & services.
Since publishing my very first book, I've become a trusted adviser to 100's of authors through my writing, speaking and consulting. Over the past 6 years, my company has published over 400+ bestselling books and counting, including 50 anthologies (author collaborations).
I'd love to help you solve your aching problem. Let's connect!
I suggest first creating a media kit to include all of your book covers with a small 100-150 blurb.
Next, identify companies, organizations and/or coaches/consultants who you can pitch your to for bulk sales. It would be to create a database to collect all of the contact information. A great place to find these prospects is on LinkedIn and Twitter.
Lastly, once you have your database, send them a intro letter to include how your book would be a great marketing tool for their audience, and include a discount scale to show how much your willing to offer off for bulk purchases.
I'd love to help you! I helped 100's of authors plan successful book launches through my company www.publishyourgift.com. It's good that you're already thinking about how to build your platform, before the actual release. That's a vital component!
