Susannah Greenberg: A Dependable Advocate!
I was surfing on Google and I found something wonderful:
Susannah Greenberg Public Relations! I thought to myself, “Self, this is splendid. Here is a full-service public relations firm for book publicity.” (As you can see I posted a link to her LinkedIn page before this post.) After doing a little research I found that the firm uses leading edge communications technology to “maximize media exposure and offers customized publicity campaigns” to meet the needs of their clientele.
For example, Susannah organized and moderated an expert panel on digital media and ebooks on Tuesday, March 29, 2011.In addition to radio, television, and print publicity, they offer online book marketing and publicity services, including social media campaigns using Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Youtube, Linkedin, Skype, Pinterest, Tumblr, and other emerging media. What better places to promote, right? Especially in the misdst of this current generation that soaks up information on the internet before they even think to touch a physical newspaper!
Greenberg also previously organized and moderated a panel discussion entitled Book Marketing Online 2010 on March 18, 2010.
Here is a list of bestsellers the firm has represented:
- Who Moved My Cheese?, NY Times bestseller, Business Week bestseller
- Longaberger: An American Success Story, #1 NY Times nonfiction bestseller, Business Week bestseller
- Bird Songs
Their specialties include young adult and teen fiction, personal finance, business, investing, economics, social sciences, psychology, health, recovery, Jewish Studies, parenting, pet care, book industry, and all adult trade nonfiction.
Susannah Greenberg services include Author tours, press releases, features, reviews, interviews, radio, TV, print, Internet, Special Events, Radio Telephone Interview Campaigns, social media campaigns, and SGPR Direct Email Publicity Campaigns targeting thousands of media contacts in TV, radio, newspapers, magazines, and Internet.
Says Eric DelaBarre, Author of Saltwater Taffy, “Susannah Greenberg is simply amazing. She got Saltwater Taffy into the printed pages ofScholastic Instructor Magazine, interviews with Wired Magazine and NBC News, and onto the airwaves of NPR. If you are serious about getting your titles the publicity they deserve, book Susannah Greenberg Public Relations today. You’ll be glad you did.”
To me that seems like the best kind of compliment any PR person could receive. This sounds like a woman whose firm is honest and dependable, ready to get the job done, to promote the author and his/her in the best sense of the word.
Here’s another amazing compliment, from Ted Allrich, author of Comfort Zone Investing: Build Wealth and Sleep Well at Night (St. Martin’s Press): “Can’t recommend Susannah too highly….very efficient, very effective, very pleasant to work with…..she’s thorough and can get your book seen by all the right people…..her recommendations to editors get noticed….I was very pleased with our results and wouldn’t hesitate to have her promote my next book.”
After all this positive feedback, is it any wonder that this woman is so successful? (Or that she has over 500 connections on LinkedIn?) If you’re going to get into PR for book publishing, this woman’s example is the kind you would want to follow. If you’re looking to publish, this would be a wonderful place to seek positive, effective publicity.
