A Million Steps

Turning a life-changing personal journey into a business opportunity and beyond

Our process begins by researching similar titles and subject matters and investigating current sales in the market. After reading the manuscript, identifying the competitors and potential market, we set about creating cover concepts that capture the essence of the story while setting the book apart from it's competitors. We pride ourselves on fast, flexible, responsive service and happily provide answers to all your questions about self-publishing. Our goal is to give you the best product possible, and help you avoid mistakes along the way. Rest assured that we are here to guide your through the process, and will make every effort to give you a book you’ll absolutely love.

Not only will we help you create a impactful, beautiful cover - but as a full-service virtual agency, we'll also help you reach your audience! A beautifully designed and well written book can never succeed if people don't hear about it. To help sell your book, 3 Dog Creative can help craft a comprehensive book-marketing campaign that combines boonline and offline components, which if done right, amplify and strengthen each other.

The Take-Away

A book cover is not merely decoration, it is an important business decision. A well-designed cover and jacket is the first assurance the reader has that the book is high quality and worth purchasing. The cover has the power to either scare away a customer or lure them in. Bad covers, with pixelated images, watermarks, badly formatted or aligned text, and so forth, suggest to the reader that the interior of the book will be equally sloppy. 3 Dog Creative's award winning designers will ensure your book is professional, and has high visibility amongst readers.

Objective

Kurt Koontz wanted to capture the life-changing experience of his adventure on the Camino through images and words, and share his thoughts about the journey.

Solution

3DC created an impactful cover design which speaks to the transformative effect that Kurt experienced on his journey. The interior layout includes maps and photos to help paint a more vivid picture in the reader's mind. To reach the largest audience possible, we created an ebook version for distribution on iTunes, Amazon and Nook and other ereaders and distributed print copies through CreateSpace. Additional print material to support the book tour included event posters, tickets and PR releases.

Outcome

Kurt's book has received great praise, and has been featured on many radio shows and webcasts. Kurt is currently touring the US giving talks to promote his book, and sales have been steadily increasing as a result of our efforts.

We’ll respond to a whistle, but a call or email works better.

Be open to new ideas.

Nobody knows your business like you do. Your brand, your company culture, your team…they’re all unique to you. That’s why we start by having an in-depth conversation with you, in which you talk and we listen. (We’ll probably ask a lot of questions too.) This exchange is going to help you communicate your vision and assist us in clarifying your needs and determining how we can best serve you.

Ask questions!

We really want to know if you’re confused or curious about something. Really. We do. But we’re not going to beg, so just ask!

Know your budget...

...and share it with us! That doesn’t mean we’re going to try to spend every penny, but if you don’t let us know, we might make marketing and strategy suggestions that you’ll perceive as wildly extravagant. That’s not our goal. We want you to get the most for your money, but we won’t be able to do that if we don’t know what you want to spend.

Get to know us.

We’re an enthusiastic team of professionals committed to developing long-term relationships with our clients defined by mutual respect, courtesy, and a positive attitude. In the end, we don’t have to be besties, but it will definitely help if we like one another.
