You’re probably wondering, “What does Rob Eagar do? And, what the heck is a marketing consultant, anyway?” The answer is a lot more than you might think.
Rob defies typical labels in the field of marketing. He’s not a publicist, social media nerd, advertising guy, or literary agent. Instead, Rob is an experienced consultant, author, and speaker who loves helping individuals and organizations spread their message like wildfire. Call him crazy, but he thinks he’s got the coolest job in the world!
Rob founded his consulting practice, WildFire Marketing, in 2007 and has attracted a diverse range of clients including businesses, non-profits, and bestselling authors. He’s trained over 400 authors and consulted with respected publishing houses, including Zondervan (HarperCollins), Howard (Simon & Schuster), Moody, Barbour, and Harvest House. Plus, he’s worked with well-known non-profits, such as Growing Leaders, Campus Crusade, Proverbs 31 Ministries, and Hearts at Home.
Rob’s marketing expertise has helped his clients produce these amazing results:
- 8 New York Times bestsellers (fiction and non-fiction).
- Million-dollar franchises for authors and publishers.
- Transformational growth for non-profit organizations.
What’s Rob’s secret? He helps his clients magnetically attract new readers, donors, and customers by answering the consumer’s ultimate buying question, “What’s in it for me?” Rob’s marketing insights are practical and effective for a wide range of issues, markets, and genres.
Rob is the author of Sell Your Book Like Wildfire (Writer’s Digest, 2012), which is widely considered the bible of book marketing. (For proof, read over 75 glowing reviews on Amazon). He also serves on the expert blogger panel for Digital Book World. Rob is also a frequent speaker on marketing topics at writers conferences, publishing conferences, and trade associations.
Rob’s background includes over 10 years experience as a regional and national sales manager, public speaking for over 10 years to more than 35,000 people at over 180 events, and generating a consistent, six-figure income as a self-publishing entrepreneur from his first book, Dating with Pure Passion. His national media appearances include interviews on the CBS Early Show, CNN Radio, and the Los Angeles Times. He has a degree in marketing from Auburn University.
When Rob isn’t consulting, you’ll usually find him fly-fishing in search of a monster trout, bouncing down a trail on his mountain bike, or loudly playing his drums. However, his wife, Ashley, prefers that he join her to quietly paint, work in their garden, or watch Jane Austen movies. They reside in Atlanta, Georgia.
Due to Rob’s busy consulting schedule, he is only able to accept new clients on a select basis. To inquire about his availability, call 1-800-267-2045.
