We provide short-term social media coverage for your new release, sales, giveaways, and/or other special event.

Our spotlights come with pre-made graphics that are sized appropriately for each individual platform we post to. We also post client’s graphics on the Maroli Design Services and Forever HEA Facebook pages with the author tagged allowing them to share the post wherever they like.

Promte Your Back List

  • $5 a month extra no restriction on number of books added to a queue or posted, although we have recommendations for posting. This add-on is not recommended for less than five books. Author provides ALL CONTENT, but I am happy to offer guidance.
  • Programming setup fees (fee is time expended adding back list into a private queue for the author and programming times)
    • 10 books or less $25
    • 15 books or less $30
    • 20 books or less $35
    • 25 books or less $40
    • Please ask for quote on more than 25 books

The back list posts are in addition to your two daily posts. The author provides ALL content for the post (wording and image link) via a Google spreadsheet. The post itself can contain whatever content you wish, e.g., excerpt, blurb, cover, review quote, buy links, etc.

Your back list post will also be added to our queue for Forever HEA, a page that has minimal traffic, but is an additional place for exposure.

Restrictions:

  • Facebook has a limit to the number of words/characters allowed in posts. The best number is no more than 550 words per posts, including links and/or normal text. For an accurate word count, use https://www.countofwords.com/
  • Posts must be in compliance with Facebook’s community standards parameters.
  • New releases ARE NOT included in this feature until three months after release.

Once the back list has been set up in the author’s private queue and is running smoothly, one new book a month may be added at no charge, provided the book is NOT a new release. A book is considered a new release as of the date it is available to a reader. Preorder times do not count toward the three months.

To see examples of back list posts, click the links below. You may select and brand the posts however you like. Consistency and limited posting is the crucial point with promoting back list.

Excerpt Fridays: Every Friday I post an excerpt from one of my back list: An example excerpt can be seen here:  https://bit.ly/2AHe1iw

Buy the Book Day: Every Tuesday, I post a back list book:  https://bit.ly/2N3dIB9
