Welcome to the exclusive podcast subscription series StorySpark™! This is a series tailored just for you! This guided audio workbook is designed to be your compass, guiding you through book marketing and helping you embrace your identity as a storyteller. Whether you're a seasoned author with a library of published works or an aspiring writer on the brink of your first book launch, you're in the right place, my friend.
At Habitize Publishing, we're all about cultivating curiosity and establishing positive habits. Instead of merely sharing lessons learned and warning against common pitfalls, we've chosen a proactive approach that caters to all the storytellers tuning in to the Press Publish Podcast.
The StorySpark Experience
We've crafted the StorySpark audio workbook and marketing plan to enable you to implement it in just 30-45 minutes a day, from anywhere. Whatever tech tools you employ to create your literary masterpiece, rest assured, they can be harnessed to market it, too.
Just keep that extra cup of coffee handy for a shot of motivation!
The Ultimate Goal
This audio workbook is designed to help you establish consistency in spreading the word about your passion project, instill confidence in promoting your story, and maintain a sense of wonder about the possibilities that lie ahead when you share your publishing journey with others.
If you stick to our timeline, which you can begin even before your book hits the shelves, we'll remove all the guesswork about what steps to take after publishing your book. And if your initial book launch didn't go as planned, and you're looking to rekindle the fire and garner more publicity, these steps will work for you, too!
Regardless of where you are in your publishing journey, let curiosity be your guide and commit to the process.
The 30-Day Plan
In each episode of StorySpark, we'll assign you one task to promote your book. You won't need to allocate more than 30-45 minutes a day to complete the core components of each task. After 30 calendar days, you'll have a robust marketing plan in place, ready to be reused or tweaked for future book launches.
Oh, and did we mention you get weekends off to celebrate? We believe in hustling smart, not hard, here at Habitize Publishing.
Are you curious about how we convert a workbook into 30-minute episodes? Each episode will follow a structured format:
A short description of what we are working on that day
An explanation of why it is important
Steps you can take to get this task done
And a few cautionary tales on how to avoid getting stuck in each step of the process
If you've written a book, there's an audience for it. Together, we will help you attract more readers eager to hear what you have to say.
We developed the SPARK Marketing Method to alleviate some of the apprehensions and fears associated with attracting the right readers and sustaining your passion for your author journey. Our approach is intentionally budget-conscious, grounded in the wisdom we've gained.
The SPARK Marketing Method
Five core components fuel our method:
S: Storytelling Strategy - Uncover the essential steps to establish the who, what, where, when, and how of your story.
P: Personal Branding - Prioritize personally branded content creation to confidently promote both your book and your brand.
A: Audience Attraction - Discover strategies to draw in an audience using methods aligned with your values, availability, and budget.
R: Relevance First - Reach your most relevant readers by prioritizing individuals, podcasts, and platforms that stand to gain the most from reading, sharing, or selling your book.
K: Kindling the Flame - Learn methods to sustain your energy and enthusiasm over time, preventing burnout for you and your audience.
