Founded in 1997 by Dan Smith, Smith Publicity Inc. began as a one-person operation and has evolved into the most prolific and successful book marketing, book publicity and book promotion agency in the publishing industry. The firm has promoted over 3,500 books and authors – the most ever by a book publicity agency in publishing history.
Smith Publicity has been at the forefront of developing author promotion services and strategies. An “equal opportunity” book promotion firm, the agency promotes quality books in all genres, whether self-published or traditionally published. The fundamental goal of every book marketing services campaign is to secure maximum media interest and coverage in an author and book to spark book sales, build author brands and create additional opportunities.
Smith Publicity has been a trailblazing author promotion company, with accomplishments including: They are the first author publicity firm to have a first-time, self-published novelist featured in the New York Times. They’ve produced one of the first video book trailers. They’re known for developing the term ”book as a business card” and was the first agency to employ this book marketing approach. And, finally, Smith led the way in the use of byline article pitching for non-fiction authors.
The concept of book PR naturally creates many questions from authors. For any author asking, “how do I market my book” or “how do I get publicity for my book,” or any other question, simply give us a call. We’re happy to help!
