Creating An Extensive Roadmap

Creating An Extensive Roadmap

You have one opportunity to launch your book: and you want to do it right. We love working alongside clients with vision to create a practical, ambitious yet achievable roadmap to launch their work. This package offers an extensive strategy development process and follow-up support.

READ MORE
The strategy development process includes an in-depth questionnaire sent to you, followed by a follow-up phone call to clarify your vision and ambitions.

We then go to work, creating an extensive strategy document, (ranging from 12 to 20 pages), including—but not limited to:

  • An audit of your current strengths, position in the market and key messages to use throughout the campaign;
  • Methods for sharing your work, and building a platform, including:
    • What tools to use—from PR, to eblasts, to social media;
    • Pros and cons associated to key outreach tools;
    • Costs associated with key outreach tools;
    • Suggested timeline for each.
  • Advice and “How To” tips for enacting these tactics, such as letter-writing samples or social media recommendations to ensure you can excel in each component.
  • A robust timeline of ideal activities based on your own goals and our knowledge of the industry.
    Answering any questions you identified in your initial questionnaire.

Following the presentation of the strategy document, we arrange two 1-hour phone calls to discuss the strategy, hone any ideas you have and ensure you have the information required to launch the book for utmost success!
