Client: Hello! I am a much-anticipated brand new author and would be most humbled and honored if you would market my new book.
Me: I am happy to market anything you’d like. Just go ahead and purchase a service from me and I’ll get started.
Client: I was wondering if you would also be posting reviews to my book’s Amazon page? I am trying to increase my book sales, so I really need Amazon reviews.
Me: I don’t do fake reviews. I am happy to actually market your book and come up with a formal marketing plan for you.
Client: Why no reviews?
Me: Because if readers see that you have a bunch of fake reviews on your book, it will mean that they will a) not buy your book, and/or b) launch a war against your book because it has fake reviews. It is not in your best interest to go that route and I work on things that will actually build your reputation, not destroy it before you’ve had a chance to establish one. I’d be happy to build an honest marketing plan with you.
Client: That’s redundant. I have a marketing plan.
Client: Yeah. I will be getting someone to write Amazon reviews.
