Description

Experience Level: Expert
My name is Gary Vincent and I am an author who has recently published a book called “Darkened Hills.” It is a fictional horror novel of vampire genre. The story is strong and initial reviews are good. Marketing, however, is the problem.

Thus, this job is for marketing expertise and help with promoting the book.
Presently, the book is distributed solely through amazon.com • both the paperback and the Kindle e-book edition. Its sales ranking is about 500,000 (in a bookstore of 5,500.000) which is not too good. The highest ranking it ever attained was to #3,265 when I ordered about 45 of the units myself to send to reviewers around the globe. Bottom line, people just don’t know the book exists, nor is there a compelling reason for them to take action and buy it.

I need to find someone who can create a sales-oriented web page offering the book for sale and host it. The sales copy should contain triggers for the reader to become interested in the book and take action to purchase it immediately. If the copywriter should have knowledge of SEO techniques to drive traffic to the site and NLP to turn prospects into buyers.

Order fulfillment is handled through amazon.com, thus someone familiar with amazon.com’s affiliate program is suggested, as the developer should embed an amazon.com affiliate tracking id so that we can mutually evaluate the sales the page generates. The book sales for $7.99 paperback and $4.99 Kindle on amazon.com’s U.S. site and £2.99 on amazon.co.uk (the U.K. site).

As an author, I presently earn $0.85 (eighty-five cents U.S.) per sale. To make this project do-able, we should have a sales objective of 50 units per week.

I can pay a base rate of £100.00 for the web page design/ad copy. Design time for this sould be less than 4 hours.

Plus, I will pay $0.25 (twenty-five cents U.S.) per unit sold by this page (paid monthly based on the sales report). Note that THIS IS IN ADDITION TO what amazon.com will pay you as an affiliate. You will use their reports when billing me for the additional unit commissions.

Designer should be willing to leave this page up (hosted) for at least a year.

Thank you for your time and for considering my proposal.
