Service Details

"Social media" represents one of the most powerful ways that anyone can use to connect their product or service with a global audience. These tools are typically internet or mobile based, like Twitter, Facebook, Myspace and YouTube - and can be used to give your book an audience of millions of readers - and connect you with people who may otherwise never hear about your book.

The evidence for deployment of social media to successfully market ideas, is compelling; one good and recent example of the success of social media is President Barack Obama, who used Twitter in the recent 2008 U.S. election to powerful effect, engaging millions of potential voters.

Many successful journalists, authors and celebrities now use the exciting medium of social media, from popular novelists like Paulo Coelho on Facebook and Khaled Hosseini on Myspace to Stephen Fry on Twitter. You too can follow in their footsteps, garnering new fans and reaching out to an entire sector of consumers who don't spend alot of time in traditional bookstores.

For this reason, Schiel & Denver's Social Media Network & Professional Blog Design package is deliberately included in many of our professional book publishing packages - to ensure our authors aren't disadvantaged or "out of touch" with the modern literary heartbeat of everyday readers across the globe.

Here are some of the longer term benefits of social media:

  • You can use social media to provide your readers with an identity to who you are and tell your story in an intimate and exciting way, that print newspapers and magazines fail at.
  • You can create relationships using social media with readers who might not otherwise know about your book, or what your ideas represent. Give your readers the interaction with your work that they are looking for. Social media is a medium that allows you to be yourself, and shine - without the restrictions of a set of written "right" or "wrong" rules.
  • Social media makes you "real" to the book buying public. If you want people to follow you and become a fan of your work; don't just buy adverts in the New York Times that only last a few weeks - put something back, and share your personality with your readers. This not only creates repeat-buyers, but reader loyalty.

How Does It Work?

Our team understands the challenges that face both debut and professional authors on the internet today. We have the professional expertise to combine strategic marketing and compelling web design to create you a successful social media network that will stand out from amongst the many generic and poorly-crafted sites littering the internet today.

We recognize that for many authors, tackling the setup of social media can be highly daunting. From handling complicated web programming language to conceptualizing an appealing design that will appeal to your readers and encourage them to stay longer on your profiles and networks, and learn more about your book.

So we've made it easy. When you purchase Schiel & Denver's social media kit, our IT professionals will design and setup everything for you. The result will be a carefully constructed social media network, including a professional author blog; and any additional information and graphics you wish to provide.

Our IT experts can work in any of the following web-based languages:

  • DHTML, XHTML
  • CSS
  • XML
  • MySQL
  • JavaScript
  • Java
  • PHP
  • Flash
  • AJAX
  • JQuery

The Schiel & Denver approach to web-based social media covers all the bases for creating eye-catching and highly-interactive websites; accessible layouts that will immediately appeal to your readers; professional and flawless presentation of your work that will encourage purchasing of your book; and industry-standard coding. We also provide professional marketing consultation to create a fully-functional final product for your book.

Your layouts will be based on your style preferences and marketing goals. We can incorporate your logos, photos or any original artwork into your layout. We will also design unique title graphic and page design, and format any additional content you have, including text, links and graphics.

Whether you are looking for an elaborate, gothic style or a clean and simple layout, our design team will work with you to create a custom social network that you and your visitors will love. When you purchase the Schiel & Denver social media package, you will receive a 100% original and professional blog; facebook page; beautifully customized high-end MySpace Layout and Design; Bebo, Flickr, Shelfari, Goodreads, Librarything, Twitter and Second life account.

Schiel & Denver will also ensure proper indexing of your social network into the major search engines like Google, Microsoft's hugely popular MSN Live Search, Yahoo! and inclusion into over 100,000 search engine databases.

It's never too late to make this investment, even if you've already published your book.

As you will have all the log-in details and information, you can update your profiles and blog on a regular basis. The value of the service is substantial. A Social Media and professional blog alone designed by professional webdesigners can cost upwards of $6000 - our service includes a whole host of wildly popular features - all customized to your unique project for just $2,499.
