Author Platform, Marketing and Personal Promotion
Eleven (11) Celebrity (Blurbs) Endorsements – Millions of Fans – Followers
Working with our publisher, we will develop and execute a highly effective and unique national pre-launch, launch, and post-launch marketing strategy. We enjoy an unprecedented presence on Social Media (details below), and also have extensive SEO experience with Google, Yahoo, and Bing. I have over four decades of experience in sales, marketing, promotion, and advertising in a variety of senior positions. A Marketing expert that will work 24/7 to ensure success and generous profits for the publisher.
In addition to our extensive online presence, we will be spearheading outreach from each of the celebrities cited throughout the proposal. They have all agreed to help promote this project. We also have plans for a launch at Ruth Eckerd Hall, Radio Interviews, a Book and Concert Tour, and are pursuing a Movie and/or Theater production (all detailed below).
We know that authors need to take significant ownership of marketing in today’s increasingly noisy and competitive publishing environment, and we are fully committed to making this book a HUGE Success.
The Social Media initiatives mentioned below will create tremendous nationwide awareness, and we will engage in a number of in-person and word-of-mouth activities that have the potential to go viral world-wide. Among his numerous competencies, Steve designs and builds websites and optimizes them for maximum exposure. An expert in Twitter, he has created proprietary software that allows him to Tweet to over a million Twitter accounts on a highly targeted basis.
Regular posts will include unique visual content, photos, trailer videos, and hashtags designed to attract customers to purchase the book. Once designed, the book image will be branded and recognizable worldwide. It took several years to populate our social media networks with fresh content, videos, photos, etc., and we are now in a strong position to capitalize on our work in order to promote the sale of the book around the country on a 24/7 basis.
Nostalgia marketing, as a sub-discipline of marketing, sparks our longing to identify with the events, stories, romances, and friendships we cherish from younger years. Sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time is a key motivator. We all know the power of an old song to trigger vivid memories of the past. Recapturing some of those moments while uncovering new details about the early 60’s is a key goal of this book. It will be a time machine, taking us back to a familiar place many of us are longing to revisit, yet also full of unknown stories of social importance.
Baby Boomers, especially older ones, are the obvious target audience. Many will be interested in my personal story and the key themes of the book, as they already know of the “Peppermint Twist” and the Peppermint Lounge. Baby Boomer nostalgia has proven to be a great economic engine – witness the number of musical tours by groups from the 60s and 70s. Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons are a case in point. They perform about 75 concerts a year, sometimes to crowds of more than 10,000. Concert-goers know the lyrics and sing along with the band, drawing on memories of days long past. My story will similarly connect with audiences through emotions that are linked to deep and fond memories of their early years.
There are several recent circumstances that coincide with the themes of Peppermint Twist Chronicles:
- The movie Green Book, which won the 2019 Oscar for Best Picture, has stimulated interest in life in the South before 1964 as well as other issues of historical importance.
- In 2017, there were 34 TV spin-offs of old TV show series, including new versions of Dynasty, Twin Peaks, and Heathers. The public loves the past.
- Of the top 10 grossing movies of 2016, only two were new properties. The others drew from films dating back decades.
- Vinyl Record Sales are at a 28-year high and growing. Retro turntables are being sold everywhere.
- Woodstock is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
Boomers buy books of all types, and we believe that we can attract those looking for a rock and roll memoir as well as those looking for more about how events of the early 60s are still being played out today (it is said that the combination of entertainment and education make for lasting memoirs.) For example, the success of the movie Green Book has opened a window into America’s past that is new to many. I knew Frank “Tony Lip” Vallelonga personally from the Peppermint Lounge and will expand upon my encounters with bouncers, corruption, the Mob, and the like.

Book Launch at Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater, Florida
We have an agreement to use the Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida for a full day, and it would be an ideal place for a book launch. Cousin Brucie will participate, and we can host a national event; full of giveaways, contests, prizes, a concert and of course, book sales. Ruth Eckerd Hall, capacity 2,180, is a 73,000-square-foot performing arts venue and is part of the Richard B. Baumgardner Center for the Performing Arts. We would like to recreate the Peppermint Lounge for a day (similar to what Jackie Kennedy did) and hire dozens of people to impersonate the celebrities who frequented the Pep in New York and Miami. Our team has closely studied launches and other major promotions such as the 1939 3-day Atlanta premiere of Gone with the Wind, and we believe we can apply many of the same principles to making our launch a success. (The governor of Georgia declared December 15, 1939, a state holiday; while we don’t expect to garner the same type of celebrity, we have close ties to Charlie Crist, former Florida governor and current member of the U.S. House of Representatives. His district includes Clearwater, where the Ruth Eckerd Hall is located.)

Facebook Network Sharing Marketing
A few very impressive numbers to ponder. Let’s assume that Joey Dee’s FB friends that have their own personal network of friends, “average” a certain hypothetical number.
All 5,000 of Joey Dee FB friends, each have their own personal list of FB friends. Each has its own following and the numbers can range from 50 to 5,000. It depends on how popular each Joey FB friend is with it’s “own” personal network. Is the average 500? 1,000? 300? – I think 500 is a low number and it’s probably much higher.
Average Number of Friends each have:
500 x 5,000 = 2.5 Million FB Users – Target Audience
700 x 5,000 = 3.5 Million FB Users – Target Audience
900 x 5,000 = 4.5 Million FB Users – Target Audience
As you can see, the numbers are staggering. Our 5,000 FB friends helping us by sharing our post with their FB friends. Please keep in mind that this is just a fragment of the overall comprehensive Facebook marketing plan. When you start adding up all the different components of the Facebook strategy, we are dealing easily in the millions.
Joey Dee Facebook personal numerous networks, clubs, groups, communities, forums and more.
And many will also receive a personal message via “Facebook” Messenger asking them to share with their friends to buy the book.
Our Celebrity endorsements will post the book announcement on their personal FB, Twitter networks, which is also in the millions.
I will optimize the Facebook posts with #hashtags, graphics and technically manipulate the HTML code and data so that it appears in all the major search engines, directories, forums, blogs, etc…. And in particular on Amazon’s search engine.
The FB posts will be inter-linked with other social media giants such as Twitter, Instagram, etc. Backlinks to each individual post helps it to go viral and circulate rapidly with world-wide visibility, exposure and “Brand” awareness. It’s important that a very catchy, impressive, specific “logo” be created that would be used anywhere and everywhere.
