*UPDATED TIMELINE FOR 2020 BOOK* IMPORTANT TO READ:
** Tuesday, October 6th, 2020 is now our SET launch date! **
Aug 31-Sept 7
- Your chapters are in editing.
- Katrina is finalizing book cover design with designer – ALL HEADSHOTS MUST BE IN.
- Katrina is soliciting endorsements.
- Katrina is finalizing back cover copy, introduction and other parts of the book for content.
- Authors – start asking others if they would be willing to SHARE the book on launch day, not just buy it but also share. Build your list of supporters and give them the *Save the Date* launch day of Tues, Oct. 6th. We also need book reviews as soon as it’s on Amazon, via Amazon… so if you can get a few people to commit to doing that, that’s awesome also.
- Please be speedy when reviewing edits so we can stay on timeline and please also have more than one person review your chapter before giving it a final approval; check for correct urls, wording, spelling of name, title, call to action, etc. Heed directions in review email from Katrina.
- Katrina creates emails and promo posts and images for launch and pre-launch.
- Katrina finalizes all artwork.
- Katrina creates launch webpage where people can grab bonuses when they buy on Amazon. (??)
- Book goes into formatting after all chapter edits are approved, after which time, no edits can be taken please so DOUBLE CHECK EVERYTHING.
- After formatting is done, cover and book manuscripts are uploaded into Amazon and Ingram Spark and sent for approval over there (takes 3-4 days).
- Katrina gives all authors all necessary marketing including the plan of what to do, etc.
- Authors – start scheduling in your marketing – 2 weeks prior to launch at least for the launch, plus added pre-launch stuff too if you want.
- Authors – schedule in speaking gigs for yourself around the launch, or schedule Facebook lives with each other or solo leading up to the launch perhaps. Record videos to share during launch. Create whatever buzz you want to create with your followers, clients and subscribers.
- Authors – finalize your free gift pages, adding video to the pages perhaps, whatever extras and call to action you need. TEST your opt in page and make sure it works properly and that you receive the follow up emails, and links work to download/play, etc. Have others test the page. Test on all types of devices too just in case.
Sept 21-Oct 7
- Market, Market, Market the launch
- Authors – send emails once weekly til the launch, day before and day of the launch. You may need to send two the day of the launch if it takes us a while to reach best seller status. Call your clients, call subscribers, call friends and family, call your supporters who said they would share it out
- Continue marketing on Oct 7th if we haven’t yet made the best seller list, sometimes early this morning we can still hit it – plus you’ll have stragglers.
- Authors – Thank supporters and friends who bought the book and tell them how we did – celebrate! Put out posts and emails to share this info, record Facebook lives and more. Add screen shots of the best-seller status and/or any reviews. Ask them now to write reviews of the book if they bought it, giving them the link to the page to make it easy.
Tuesday, OCTOBER 6, 2020– * Book launch day! * All author gift landing pages should be completed
- After the Kindle is out and book launch is done, Katrina adds the print book to Amazon and we have to revise the cover to include a best-seller sticker.
- Katrina orders a printed author proof to approve all is well with the print files/book.
- Authors – tell Katrina by the 12th (at the latest) if you want to order additional copies of your book to sell or give as gifts for the holidays, clients, etc.
Oct 12 and beyond
- Katrina orders and ships books to all authors. (Only authors who have paid in full for their participation in the book can receive books.) Authors typically will receive their print books 3-4 weeks after the ebook/Kindle launch. FYI
- Authors – put the print book on your site for sale if you want, let people buy from you and make money!
- Authors – nows the time to promote that you’re a new author – go after local or national free publicity, radio shows, TV appearances, podcast interviews, speaking gigs. Arrange for print book signings in your town, host a book signing party and invite your local friends, family and clients!
- Continue purchasing more books whenever you need them. Just email Katrina when you want them and how many, there will be a special page or link for you to pay Katrina and then she will go online buy and ship them to you as before. Any quantity is fine, no price breaks for more.
By October 12th – AUTHORS NEED TO TELL ME IF YOU WANT TO ORDER MORE BOOKS THAN THE 35 COPIES THAT YOU RECEIVE WITH THE BOOK CHAPTER SO I CAN SHIP THEM ALL TOGETHER PLEASE…. THEY WILL BE LESS THAN $5.50/BOOK MOST LIKELY OR RIGHT AROUND THERE AND YOU CAN ORDER ANY QUANTITY.
