Marketing Mentoring

Supporting and equipping you with the marketing knowledge to promote yourself and your books with ease and confidence.

Social media, Facebook ads, events, partnerships, promotions . . .

 

 

Thinking about how to market your book, and all the possibilities, can be OVERWHELMING

Don’t worry I’m here to help you.

 

I work with authors across a number of mentoring 121 sessions to guide them through the elements of marketing their book. These sessions are an hour long and held on zoom, or in person if our locations allow.

 

Every author I work with needs slightly different support, so after an initial chat so I can understand what you want to achieve and where you need support, I tailor your sessions according to what will help you the most.

 

Across our sessions we are likely to cover:

 

∗Identifying and being really clear on your target audiences∗

∗Understanding what content to share that will appeal to your audience∗

∗Best practice on your chosen social media channels∗

∗Detailed feedback and guidance on your current activity∗

∗The importance of engagement on social media and how to encourage it∗

∗Drafting a content plan that is bespoke to you and that you feel confident in∗

∗How to build relationships on social media∗

 

In addition you have email access to me throughout the time we work together to ask any questions that come up, or to get feedback.

I have extensive book marketing experience and love getting creative so I can also help brainstorm other marketing opportunities for you.

 

I can also offer advice on social media advertising, Amazon advertising, setting up promotions and lots more. 

 

I help keep you accountable and moving forward with weekly actions and regular feedback.

 

I will also schedule a free half an hour call a month after we’ve finished working together to check in on how you are getting on.

This is for you if:

You are excited and ready to get moving with building your social media presence and your marketing activity, and have some time to devote to it.

You prefer having ongoing support and someone you can ask questions of and get feedback from along the way rather than doing it alone.

You want someone to encourage you and keep you accountable.

I am not the right fit for you if:

You are looking for someone to do your marketing on your behalf.

This service particularly benefits authors who want to build a long-term author brand over time. Or, if you are focusing on just one book, I recommend that you have plenty of time before publication to build up your strategy and approach. 

If you think marketing mentoring might be the support you need right now, let’s have a quick chat, with no obligation, to see if it could help.

‘Kelly worked with us as a mentor to help us create a presence and identity on Twitter and Instagram. She took the time to understand us and our market, helped us to grasp the nature of good social media marketing, and guided us through the setting up process. She was clear, engaging and attentive throughout the process, and I cant recommend her highly enough.’

‘Kelly Weekes is more than a marketing mentor; she is an avid supporter of your work and she wants you to achieve your goals. Kelly takes the time to get to know her clients, their personalities, and thinks of ways to help them represent themselves in a way that is true to them; working with her is a wonderfully empowering experience.

“Kelly helped me on the launch of my first novel “The Curious Rise of Alex Lazarus” and was a delight to work with her.

She is very knowledgeable (and wise!) on all aspects of digital marketing and a brilliant and creative guide in formulating and executing a strategy. She is organised, a brilliant communicator and above all an amazing coach and cheerleader. I could not recommend her highly enough.”
