About Anne Chaconas:
When people ask me what I do, I tell them I’m a marketing ninja–because “publicist” doesn’t even begin to cover it. At Badass Marketing, I do so much more than just tell the world about your book. I help authors increase their social media presence. I distill your personality and turn it into an unforgettable brand. I create massive book launch plans, and get those books to the top of the Amazon lists. I launch viral social campaigns, make fabulous live-action book trailers, get naughty with memes, and make Photoshop my bitch. I mastermind campaigns to grow your newsletter and help you talk one-on-one with your fans.
And yes, I create kickass ad campaigns and get the buzz started for books.
Since 2008, I’ve worked with businesses and individuals in all walks of professional life, helping them find their inner freak and let it roar. I’ve increased their social media reach, found them thousands of new fans and subscribers, and helped them walk on the edge of awesome. In 2013, I started Badass Marketing with one simple mission: I want to give you the tools to successfully find and engage your target reader market–and I want to cram the process as full of fun and badassery as possible. I work with USA TODAY and New York Times bestselling authors, award-winning writers, and incredibly prolific wielders of the written word. And it rocks!
