The 4 Step Plan For Hybrid Publishing and Marketing Your Book

How does the process of publishing your own book and marketing it, often referred to as hybrid publishing, work? If you’re interested in how you can become a published author, gain new business, and become the authority in your field, keep reading!

At Advantage|ForbesBooks, we have a four-step process from the day you start working on your book towards after the book launch and when the marketing plan comes into play.

Step 1

On the very first day, you’ll decide whether you want to begin with our Fast Start Author Program® or our Authority Marketing Blueprint Day® program. The Fast Start Author Program is designed for those who want to get started on their book right away, and have a general idea for the concept of their book in mind. The Authority Marketing Blueprint Day is an eight-hour day of building out your Authority Marketing® blueprint plan for your business. We fly you out to our headquarters in Charleston, South Carolina where you get to spend the day strategically planning with our industry leaders, mapping out your plan for hyper-growing your business, and what we’ll do to help you get to where you want to be.

Step 2

The second major step is to start creating your business book! Over the course of 10 to 20 hours, your designated project editor or ghostwriter will interview you by phone. This time is your chance to tell your story, share your thoughts and ideas, and communicate the general vision you have for your book. Our award-winning editorial team will then transcribe your ideas and transform them into a manuscript. Throughout this process, you’ll be able to read sections of your manuscript so you can say whether you love or hate it and the editorial team can tweak it to your liking.

Step 3

For some of our authors, this is the most exciting step: publishing your book. After the editing process, you’ll begin working with our team to design a book cover that will rival the best sellers, or any book you’ll find on the tables of major bookstores. And, if you think you’ll have to stress out about details such as printing and distribution, not to worry! We take care of everything from the printing of your book, to distribution, to sales to online and offline retail outlets.

Step 4

After your beautiful book has been created and published, it’s time to market it! Our Authority Institute team will help you craft and implement a plan to grow your authority and business utilizing your book. Our Authority Marketing System does all of the heavy lifting, from social media management, to content writing, to lead generation, they’ll be with you every step of the way!

This is our four-step plan for book publishing and marketing designed specifically for publishing a book in as little as 24 hours of time, and for hyper-growing your personal brand and business. Don’t waste another minute letting your business idle by, it’s time to become the authority in your field with our hybrid publishing model!
