Work With Me

Dan Blank

One-on-One Consulting is where I become your co-pilot to grow your author platform, create meaningful connections with readers, or prepare for your big book launch.

If you are looking for a transformation in your creative work — to finally launch your book, to once and for all have complete clarity on what you create and why, to know in your bones who your work is meant to reach, and how to do it — then you know that right now is your big chance.

Over the years, I have worked with thousands of writers and creative professionals to do the work necessary to successfully connect their vision to an engaged audience. They took action to ensure their message was heard, and it paid off.

Let’s Solve Your Biggest Problems

I offer three packages focused on providing a creative transformation in your life. In each, I work with you each week to solve your biggest problems. I become a part of your team as a strategic advisor, and side-by-side, we work together to ensure your work has an impact. Each package is a three-month commitment which has me working with you step-by-step it all.

Keep in mind, I am happy to customize a package to fit your exact goals and challenges.

We Are a Great Fit If…

We are a great fit for working together if one or more of these scenarios seems to speak to your situation:

  1. You are a writer who wants to move to the next level and is tired of waiting for ‘someday’ to make it happen. You know what you want to do, but feel stuck in the middle, overwhelmed by all you are told you “have to do.” You’re ready to get this show on the road and you need someone create a plan personalized to you, give you clear steps, and provide encouraging accountability.
  2. You are looking to develop your author platform. Perhaps you’ve heard that agents and publishers are passing on your writing because you don’t have a platform. They ask you where you are engaging with your audience, and you don’t have an answer. You want to know and create an author platform that creates meaningful connections with readers.
  3. You are launching a book, whether it is a  novel, nonfiction, memoir, or something else entirely. You have spent hundreds of hours crafting thousands of words, and now is the moment you want to ensure it truly reaches readers.  Whether you are traditionally publishing or self-publishing, you’re ready to double-down.
  4. Your writing and creative work is also connected to a business you want to grow. You have a vision for developing a full or part-time business of your own related to your writing. To take your creative work to the next level professionally, and use this as a springboard to a new career. This is about building the foundation for a new brand, a new phase in your career, a new profession, or a new entrepreneurial venture.

Why Work With Me

Dan BlankIf you are wondering if I am the right fit for your needs, here is a little bit of my background:

  • I have worked with thousands of writers and creative professionals. My days are spent in the trenches with these people – none of this is theory to me – it is always framed in the everyday reality of what truly works for connecting with an audience.
  • I have worked with amazing organizations who support creative people, such as Penguin Random House, Hachette Book Group, Sesame Workshop, Workman Publishing, J. Walter Thompson, Abrams Books, Writers House, The Kenyon Review, Writer’s Digest, Library Journal, and many others.
  • I have helped launch hundreds of email newsletters and blogs; I’ve built dozens of websites; developed podcasts, videos, and even Kickstarter campaigns; and I’ve consulted on marketing strategies with huge publishers and organizations that serve creative professionals. Plus, I have run my own company for years, meaning that I have had to become the master of hundreds of tiny technical details for “getting out there.”

I think what is equally important is that my days are spent with creative professionals, and my entire life has been spent surrounded by creators hoping to make their mark. As for myself, I have been an artist, a poet, a musician, a paper sculptor, a writer, a publisher, a photographer, a teacher, a radio DJ, a cartoonist, and an entrepreneur.

If you want to get a sense of my work? Here are some examples:

Fleur Bradley“Dan helped me find focus my goals, determine my target audience (and how to reach them), and try new social media approaches that paid off right away. I feel like I’ve regained control of my schedule: I now know what marketing I want to accomplish each day, and have clear goals for the months ahead. The best part: I have more time to write.”
– F.T. Bradley, author

Beth McMullen“Dan provided a framework and roadmap to help me move beyond my inaction and panic, to develop my platform and grow my readership. By breaking the work down into chunks, it became manageable instead of insurmountable. What I gained was a sense of control, and I no longer felt overwhelmed.”
– Beth McMullen, author

Thomas Greanias“Dan not only helps you find out who you are as an author, but who your readers are and how to make that special, magic connection.”
– Thomas Greanias, New York Times Bestselling author

Leigh Stein“I hired Dan to help me with the marketing strategy for my next book launch. This is my fourth book and already I can see the difference: not only do I feel confident about the message of my book, and who my audience is, but I was able to bring innovative ideas for marketing and promotion to my publisher and they took off running. I don’t think I would have gotten this much support from my publisher if I hadn’t jumpstarted my marketing with Dan!”
– Leigh Stein, author of Self Care

Susan Chritton“Dan guided me to take the steps that I needed to find my authentic voice as a writer, speaker, and to help me develop an online presence. I appreciated the depth of his knowledge, the kindness of his guidance, and the solid process in which to follow. I now recommend Dan to every writer that I meet.”
– Susan Chritton, author of Personal Branding For Dummies

Barbara Techel“Dan isn’t about shortcuts, but connecting with readers in a deeper way. This is what I wanted as a writer. I wanted to find my true, authentic audience. I wanted to continue to make a difference in the lives of my readers. He helped me stay on the right path. Dan is the real deal, he cares.”
– Barbara Techel, author
