What our clients are saying

Josh Schwartz and Pubvendo displayed a remarkable grasp of big-picture insight and specialized skills to deliver real-world results. Their hyper-customized social media and advertising engaged my core audience of international thriller fans. And their data-driven deep dives uncovered my newest and fastest-growing audience of millennial females. Who knew? They did. More important, now I do too.

Pubvendo brought my book, "Lacks Self Control," to social media life. Not only did they immediately grasp my brand of humor, they also identified and targeted an audience that would appreciate stories about Chevy Chase grabbing my balls at a funeral, Snoop Dogg smoking weed on HuffPost Live, and the time I tried to steal a soiled tissue containing Oprah Winfrey’s tears. As an author, nothing made me happier than seeing a stranger comment: ‘I just bought your book. If it’s even half as funny as your Facebook ads, I’m in for a treat!’

“I am convinced my book would not have been nearly as successful as it was without Pubvendo promoting it. Once they began their campaign, my previously perfectly adequate sales began to skyrocket. The publisher literally could not send inventory to Amazon fast enough. Pubvendo is amazing and easy to work with, and they bring heart, data-intelligence, marketing know-how, and a true love of books to the outstanding work they do for authors. Highly recommended.”

I was delighted to work with Pubvendo on two books, and both campaigns were handled with great professionalism. They know their stuff, and structured our outreach to focus closely on appropriate target audiences for my work. Pubvendo is user friendly, very easy to work with, and able to make complex technical matters easy to understand for authors.”

Chris LowneyAuthor, Everyone Leads

Pubvendo is the best digital agency in the book business, second to none. We’ve partnered with them to promote a variety of books in diverse genres and have always found them to offer a custom approach with unique creative and audience insights—and spectacular results.

My experience working with Pubvendo was incredibly exciting, expertly instructive, meticulously professional, and profoundly cordial. As someone who isn't savvy regarding marketing, advertising, or Earned Digital Media, I was gently and patiently walked through all of the details planned for my book project. At no point was I left wondering about the handling of book project. Pubvendo works with diligence and a rigorous work ethic that assured me that my project was in the right hands. With each update and follow through on my project, I felt a deep sense of personal appreciation and was made to feel that my project was at the top of their list of priorities. It is without question that I will work with Pubvendo again in the future.

I found Josh and his team extraordinarily accomplished in every facet of their work. They understand the complex subtleties of social media and how to leverage its influence with class and integrity. The campaign they created for me had impact on the target audience in forceful yet positive ways and their keen sense of design and wit became icing on the cake. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Josh and, during the engagement, found that my respect for his mastery of social media marketing for authors had surpassed my already high expectations.

Mark LiptonAuthor, Mean Men

Josh runs a tight ship. Right from the start he provided tons of analytics and insights, was fast and responsive, and the whole experience was buttery smooth. I’d hire Pubvendo again in a heartbeat.
