Annie Jennings PR Optimizes Your Publicity Strategy
Your highest potential: Want to get the best book publicity strategy for your goals and PR objectives?
What do you want to achieve? Most authors want to get the most bang for their buck in terms of the deliverables, that is, what do they get for their money? At Annie Jennings PR, the focus is always on you and what you would like to accomplish with your PR outreach. This allows us to create the right media publicity campaign that, given our experience, will be the best choice for you. This is with your goals and other assets you bring to your publicity outreach program such as topic, credentials, experience and more.
There is a PR campaign for everyone. The question is “what is the right book publicity strategy for you?” That’s the question Annie Jennings PR seeks to answer for you. What is the best way “FOR YOU” to achieve your own personal goals? If you tell Annie what you want to do, she will help you develop a plan for getting you there.
Book Publicity & Promotion Is About Investing In PR Assets
What’s your ROI? Your PR should always be earning you a ‘return on investment (ROI). It’s about investing in yourself and your goals. When talking about money spent on publicity and PR strategies, Annie believes the strategy should wrap around the concept of investing your marketing dollars and not squandering them. But how do you know the difference? What is investing your dollars and who will squander them? Investing your publicity money is when you can expect to get something of value such as better positioning in your marketplace, an elevation of your brand, more influence, credibility and clout in return for your investment. Investing is when you get a publicity asset that you can leverage to your benefit. This is called investing in active PR vs investing in passive PR. Squandering is putting up a lot of money but the value of what you received in return is way below your investment. Annie can guide you on how to choose the right PR firm for you to help you. Publicity and promotion is the FUN part of growing a business or promoting a book. Annie likes to take the stress out of it for you. Enjoy. Fun! Reach People! This is what PR is all about. It’s time now – you worked long hard hours in the past – but it’s time now to have the time of your life!
Be heard. In the world: Active PR is YOU out in the world, contributing and attracting new opportunities by sharing your message and reaching people. Passive PR is when you just sit there waiting for the phone to ring.
Active publicity is Annie’s specialty and that’s what makes your phone ring. Passive publicity is associated with retainer publicity where you pay a monthly fee, and many times quite high, for the other firm just “trying” to get you some media placements with no guarantee of delivery. That’s squandering.
Investing your book publicity dollars is about earning a return on investment in a way that empowers you.
Active Book Publicity Is About Getting Actual Media Placements
Invest your PR dollars: Again, there are many ways to spend your book publicity dollars. However, there are many ways of wasting your money as well. We like when our clients earn a return on their investment. They are heard in the world. They report that good things happen to them such as they attract new opportunities such as speaking events, book deals and new clients.
No squandering allowed at Annie Jennings PR: The other way of spending PR dollars, which can be referred to as squandering your marketing budget, is to buy passive PR. An example is no impact PR could be press release distribution where at the end of the day, nothing much really happened. A mistake authors make is to forget that any money spent on PR should have a return thus giving the author added value. At our publicity firm, we offer guaranteed deliverables for active publicity whereas most other firms will only offer to do something for you but with “no guarantees” of getting any meaningful media or publicity placements at all.

Successful authors do NO do this: But the one thing they do NOT do is buy the type of publicity that is wrapped around the word “try”.

But if the PR firm does not get any media bookings, well, nothing is guaranteed to the author as per the monthly retainer contract.
At Annie Jennings PR, there are NO RETAINERS!
Annie says “why about anyone page for services unrendered? This concept has never appealed to me. What is the incentive for the publicist to venture out into the choppy waters of PR? Hey, it can be tough out there. Hopefully, you will never have to experience what’s it is like to be a publicist. It’s challenging and NOT for the faint of heart or the unskilled.

This way, authors and experts can develop a working knowledge of what journalists are covering and what types of stories they are covering. Plus, the author or expert can create a history of knowledge on where the media outlet is in covering issues in their area of expertise.
Below is a list of some of the major media outlets that many of our clients have secured media opportunities in and that are considered among the top of their industry.

Each media outlet has a profile of its readership and publishes stories and information that will appeal to their demographics.
At Annie Jennings PR, we only pitch qualified experts to the proper media outlets that match their subject matter and other qualifications the media would like their contributors to have. Not knowing this information can put authors and experts at a disadvantage. However, the media respects publicists who know the type of guests or contributors that would work for their media outlets. When you work with experienced publicists and publicity firms you benefit from their extensive knowledge of background information that can get you booked on the media outlet.
Business Media Outlets
This category works well for experts in numerous areas of business from small business to marketing your business, to workplace issues and productivity, to leadership, management, global issues and lots more. Generally, these outlets prefer experienced professionals with credentials who are actively working in their industry. Advanced credentials such as a Masters or Ph.D. are very much welcome although many years of experience in your subject matter is also beneficial. When creating your media BIO be sure to include all of your educations, credentials, media placements and any industry associations where you are a member.
