If you can’t make the takeover, feel free to comment on this post with your questions and we can ask them for you! 

Hello Authors!

I’m excited for this opportunity to be part of KWL’s Takeover series. My name is Clayton Noblit, and I’m a Digital Marketing Manager at Written Word Media.

We always hear that marketing is the most difficult part of being an author, and honestly, that makes complete sense. Marketing is far from easy, especially if you are new to the game.

At Written Word Media, we hope we can take away some of the pain and replace it with sales. We are a book promotion company, which means we have emails lists of over one million readers, and authors can pay to have their books emailed to a targeted audience most likely to buy or download their book. Our promotions are both quick to set up and effective.

We run hundreds of promotions every week, so we’re able to learn a lot about what works, and what doesn’t, when it comes to book marketing.

Now, I’m not an author, far from it. But I am an expert in digital marketing, and I spend a lot of time thinking of ways to help authors market their books more effectively. From coming up with ideas for new ways to market books, to writing blog posts about how to build a marketing funnel for authors, I’m interested in helping authors get as many sales as possible. And, if a Written Word Media promotion fits into that strategy, all the better.

I look forward to taking over the Kobo Writing Life page, and I’m excited to answer your questions about all things book marketing, marketing mindset, industry trends, and Written Word Media.

Clayton Noblit is a Digital Marketing Manager at Written Word Media, a book promotion company. After starting his marketing career at a fin-tech startup, he joined Written Word Media and instantly became fascinated with self-publishing and eBook marketing.

When he is not working on ways to sell more books, Clayton is probably playing some sort of sport or making cocktails with his wife.
