I don't know about you, but when I was growing up, becoming a salesperson was always a negative stigma. I used to think people who sold things were as sleazy as Danny DeVito in Matilda.
But over the past 10 years, I've been thrown into sales job after sales job. Including, selling things to people without having an existing product to show them! And I've been able to do it, too. (There are 6 top-sales trophies behind me to prove it.)
So when it came time to market my first children's book, I thought it would be easy. But it was A LOT of learning! Like most things, books are a product that need help finding their market.
This is why I created the KidLit Marketing Launch Kit - to help you know what you need to do when before your book comes out. These are the exact strategies I've used to launch my first 3-picture books, which have led to thousands of dollars in sales in the first week. So I know it will work for you!

A Complete Social Strategy
One of the best ways to connect with readers is through social media. You'll learn what to post and how to promote your book.
A List of Contacts for Reviews
Having reviews is a great way to sell more books! In this, you'll receive 100 different children's book blogs to start your search, as well as, tactics to start a launch team.
An Editable Press Kit
One great way to reach readers is through the media, but for that, you'll need a press kit. With this, you'll receive a customizable cover page, description, and press release you can make your own!
A Launch Week Checklist
Along with knowing what to do months before your book's release date and after, you need to know what to do for launch. (It's the most important week for your book!) Get a complete checklist so you know what to focus on when.
