Polish Your Pitch: The One-Minute Book Marketing Challenge

Moderated by Bob Baker

Join the St. Louis Publishers Association on December 8 and “Polish Your Pitch:  The One-Minute Book Marketing Challenge” moderated by Bob Baker. Learn how to hone your “elevator speech” at this special book marketing session hosted by SLPA past president and marketing master Bob Baker.

Make no mistake:  your ability to clearly communicate who you are and what your book is about will lead to more publicity, more readers, and more sales. As a self-promoting author, you need to learn this skill.

One by one, authors will take the hot seat to describe their book in one minute. A panel of experts will critique each pitch and make suggestions while audience members are encouraged to offer feedback, as time allows. Current SLPA members will have first preference to offer their pitch, then we’ll take volunteers from the audience in the remaining time.

Bob Baker helps musicians, authors, and creative entrepreneurs use their talents and know-how to make a living and make a difference in the world. He is the author of several books, including the highly acclaimed Guerilla Music Marketing Handbook (which appeared in the movie School of Rock, starring Jack Black). Check out Bob’s free blog, podcast, video clips, and more at FullTimeAuthor.com and TheBuzzFactor.com.
