The Promote A Book outlining process will never be in the public domain, and so we will never share all the specifics of the process. Not because we are overprotective of our process, but because the process itself requires that people who participate in it to be “caught off guard”. If you know too much about the process before you go through it, it will be much less effective, and the results will be inferior. But, here are a few things we can tell you
- It literally takes 30 minutes
- It doesn’t hurt
- It is fast-paced
- You do not need to prepare anything before hand
- Halfway through the process you will start actually having fun as you will begin to see your book from a different angle.
Writing a book is not publishing a book. Publishing a book is not promoting a book. Michael Drew has spent 13 years in the publishing industry successfully placing over 67 books onto the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists. Once you’ve completed writing your book using the book outline process you’ll need to know:
- The best model for publishing
- How to use your book to build your platform
- How to best market and advertise your book.
- Your publisher will help you market and advertise your book
- Your publisher is “all powerful and all knowing”
- To have a platform you need to have a media platform like Tom Brokaw
- To be a bestseller a book has to be well-written
- Everyone should shoot for a major US best-sellers list
- It’s all about you and your book
- Word of mouth and traditional public relations sells books
From his early days publicizing books for Bard Press, Entrepreneur Magazine, Longstreet Press, and Thomas Nelson Publishers, Michael Drew has shown a gift for promoting the written word. He went on to found Promote A Book in 2003 which, under his leadership, has helped launch more than 67 books onto national bestseller lists. Beyond merely helping books to sell well, Michael Drew works with authors to expand their reach and build their platforms to become even more effective entrepreneurs and thought leaders for today’s idea-hungry marketplace. Michael has observed up-close the shifting dynamics of the publishing industry and how content reaches today’s varied audiences. As a result, he has expanded Promote A Book’s services to include consulting and planning on everything from internet distribution and website building to video creation, book trailers, podcasting and more. We call this platform building. Michael is also an accomplished and sought-after speaker. In addition to discussions on the state of the publishing industry and the way forward in a sometimes-chaotic digital age, Michael’s acclaimed Pendulum presentation examines how entrepreneurs and thought leaders can capitalize on society’s alternating cycles of civic and idealistic attitudes. His style, his content, and his personality are so compelling that Michael recently shared the stage with Steven Covey and His Holiness the Dalai Lama at the prestigious Engage Today forum of business leaders.
