“Out-of-the-box PR campaigns” for authors to get their books to legions of readers from “one of the best publicists in the business” (James Rollins, #1 New York Times bestselling author). From the rise of ebooks to the impact of online retail sales to the wide acceptance of self-publishing as a natural path, countless authors are writing books and then wondering what to do with them. Self-published authors need to know how to bring their book to market themselves and reach audiences without a publisher’s marketing or publicity department behind them. Even published authors want to supplement the work of in-house publicity managers and develop a direct relationship with everyone from the media to potential fans. As the head of her own independent PR firm, Kaye Publicity, Dana Kaye has been a driving force behind numerous bestselling authors across all genres, from thriller authors like Gregg Hurwitz and Jamie Freveletti to children’s authors like Liz Climo and Claudia Gray, and now she brings her insights to you. Kaye walks writers through all of their options, taking the anxiety out of the pitching process and teaching them how to be their own best promoters. Sharp, intuitive, and user-friendly, Dana Kaye’s guide is a must-have for all authors with bestselling aspirations. “There’s a reason I didn’t hire an outside publicist through my first ten books. It’s because I hadn’t yet met Dana. Smart, no-nonsense, creative, and to the point, she’s the best in the business.”—Gregg Hurwitz, New York Times bestselling author of Orphan X

Content is still king–and if you’re a brand marketer, you need to start thinking like a media company, too. Your Brand, The Next Media Company brings together the strategic insights, operational frameworks, and practical approaches for transforming your brand into a highly successful media company. There is a content and media surplus in the marketplace, and there is an attention deficit in the minds of consumers today. Their lives are dynamic and completely unpredictable. They are highly influential and aid their peers down the purchase funnel using organic conversations about the products they care about and the ones they don’t. In order to reach these consumers, brands must create recent, relevant, and game changing content to break through the clutter and successfully change their behavior. Social business pioneer Michael Brito covers every step of the process, including: Understanding the unpredictable nature and dynamic behaviors of the social customer Deploying social business strategies that will help facilitate the change from brand to media company Building a content organization and setting the stage for transformation Creating a real-time command center that will help facilitate reactive and proactive content marketing Creating a centralized editorial team that will drive content strategy, governance, and cross-team collaboration Building the content supply chain (workflows for content ideation, creation, approval, distribution, and integration) Enabling customers and employees (brand journalists) to feed the content engine Developing your content strategy that can be executed across paid, earned, and owned media content Transitioning from “brand messaging” to a highly relevant content narrative Evaluating the content marketing vendors and software platforms vying for your business Along the way, Brito presents multiple case studies from brand leaders worldwide, including RedBull, Oreo, Tesla Motors, Burberry, Sharpie, and Pepsi—delivering specific, actionable, powerfully relevant insights you can act on to begin the transformation from brand to media company.
