Does Marketing Scare You?
It doesn't have to
Marketing is just sharing the things you're really excited about that you think others will enjoy too. You do this all the time when you recommend movies or books to friends and family.
Sure, that's still terrifying in a way because we're talking about marketing our book. But that fear doesn't need to hold you back. In fact, you've already taken a HUGE step.
You're here because you've written a book, but you're not sure how to present it to the world. Maybe you've tried a few strategies like setting up a website, social media, advertising, or reached out to friends, family, and colleagues to buy.
But you found that selling a book is a lot harder than it seems.
Maybe you've gotten discouraged.
Maybe you've gotten disillusioned.
Maybe you're looking for a method that really works; a substantial strategy that continues to sell books and feels good for you too.
And that's what I'm here to help you do. I'd really love to hear about your projects and plans, so Connect with me on the Contact Page. Or Start Here to begin learning what you need to do to give your book its best chance.
Thanks for being here! I'm delighted to meet you!

The thought of marketing it seemed overwhelming.
The minute [Dani] entered my life, I felt relief! Dani is passionate about what she does. It felt as though she cared just as much about my success as I do. The first thing that really stood out to me was her patience. The world of social media is intimidating. Dani made everything simple. She literally walked me through the steps I needed to take to succeed. The other thing that is special about Dani is her work ethic. Once we were working with a platform that wasn’t clicking. At any time Dani could have become frustrated while suggesting that this isn’t the way to go. Instead, she kept on going until the job got done.
In my lifetime, I’ve worked with the likes of Disney and Universal consultants; visionaries and Thought Leaders who were at the top of their game. I know a winner when I meet one! If you have a book that you want to get out into the world, I would highly recommend Dani Jorgensen.

“As a first time Author I was seeking to settle into a platform. My website was a mess. Now my website is elegant, friendly easy for visitors to navigate and manageable for me to maintain.
"I found Dani after I completed Tim Grahl’s Book launch web series. After two virtual chats Dani had set out a specific plan; including doubling my influencer list, redesigning my website and setting up mail-chip. Dani remained transparent, upbeat with positive vibes, ideas and solutions.
