“With Tom’s help, I hit the New York Times bestseller list on my first try.”
“I had the opportunity to work with Tom Morkes on the launch of my second book, Email Marketing Demystified. While my first book only had a few hundred downloads the first week, my second book had more than 5,000 downloads thanks to Tom's hard work. He knows the exact steps needed to make a book launch on an Amazon successful and he developed a customized strategy to ensure my book launch was a success. Tom connected me to numerous influencers and was able to get me booked on a number of podcasts. I would highly recommend his services to anyone writing a book that wants to have a wildly successful launch.”
"In January of 2016, I launched my first physical product, "The Freedom Journal," on Kickstarter. To accomplish this, I knew I needed help. That's why I hired Tom Morkes...What happened next exceeded my expectations: We were featured on dozens of big name blogs and podcasts, our press release was picked up by all the major networks, and we managed to get over 100 influencers to email their email lists about the launch. All in all, thanks to our heavy outreach and promotional efforts, "The Freedom Journal" raised $453,803 in just 33 days, becoming the 6th most funded crowdfunding publishing project on Kickstarter (and number 1 in the "non-fiction" category).
Choosing Tom Morkes was a big investment, but in hindsight it was a no-brainer; we got way more than 10x our value and I couldn't be happier. Bottom line: if you're looking to do a large scale book launch, get in touch with Tom and his team ASAP so you can launch your book the right way."
“Before hiring Tom, my biggest concern was whether or not we'd get a critical mass of promotional partners on board. Fortunately, that fear did not materialize. With Tom’s help, we got commitments from upwards of 70 influencers, and even some companies that explored sponsorship opportunities. This ultimately resulted in 60 plus partners...which resulted in close to 10,000 new subscribers, and more than 400 sales [over a 3 week launch window]. If you are looking for somebody that's hard working, very detail oriented, has a lot of relationships and good connections, Tom and his team are a great choice...I highly recommend Tom and his team for your next launch.”
"Writing a book is only the first step. Without a scalable path to customers, even the best products die a silent death. I want to thank Tom Morkes and his incredible team at Insurgent Publishing...for turning our high-level launch strategy into a series of actionable tactics and experiments."
“Tom orchestrated a launch plan that rocketed my book, The 7 Day Startup, to #1 on Amazon in Small Business and Startups...gathering 12,000+ downloads in the first week.
When it moved to the paid section in week 2, it stayed there and started outranking Startup royalty like Eric Ries (The Lean Startup), Michael Gerber (The E Myth) and Steve Blank (The Startup Owner's Manual).
With Tom's book marketing plan, we built a team of 500 ambassadors and we were able to get 90+ 5 start reviews in the first week. I can't recall ever getting better value for my money in business. I couldn't be happier with the result.”
