I am looking for a Virtual Author's Assistant to help with the sales and promotion of a YA graphic novel series. Right now, I'm working abroad and I'm making money, but unfortunately I am short on time and energy. I need someone as an assistant, coach, student, teacher, and marketer.
Ideally, this person would have experience running successful book campaigns for authors. I am not looking for a VA as a drone to simply do tasks, but for someone as a collaborator with experience running campaigns that knows and loves marketing strategies.
To create an overall strategy blueprint and implement that plan through action.
The virtual assistant will help find a web designer that is capable of building quality websites.
The virtual assistant will research similar books in the genre. They will use google to find reviews and interviews on similar sites for those books and create a list of book reviewers and news sites to contact about getting a review or doing an interview to send out books and materials.
The virtual assistant will join facebook groups for Author's promotional exchanges to help grow and build a mailing list. They should also know about joint giveaway projects.
The virtual author's assistant will help create and implement a solid social media advertising game plan that result in sales. I'm not talking about someone who knows how to use FB and Twitter. I am talking NEXT LEVEL. Ideally, I would like to hire someone who knows more than I do.
The virtual assistant should be familiar with Amazon and customer reviews as well as crowdfunding sites such as Kickstarter. Someone with marketing experience is needed who knows the book world and about giveaways and email list exchanges in order to build a customer base.
The virtual assistant will write copy for emails and press releases. They will proofread and make sure that all links are included.
This job is over the next two months and is task based. If the virtual assistant is great then I look forward to working with them on new projects and having them as a part of a team.
