Rob Eagar has helped numerous publishers create more bestsellers, revive backlist books, and boost direct-to-consumer sales.
Rob has an extensive understanding of the publishing industry. He has consulted with numerous well-known publishers and generated these types of dramatic results:
- Revitalized a backlist book that hit the New York Times bestseller list for 8 straight months after 23 years in print.
- Generated over $1,000,000 of extra revenue for a division of HarperCollins from a single frontlist book campaign.
- Helped a publisher restore a key author relationship and boost sales of a 2-year-old book using free content.
- Coached a stuck, B-level author who transformed into a 4-time New York Times bestseller.
“I asked Rob Eagar to breathe more life into the sales of the successful book, Boundaries, written by my clients, Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend. After Rob worked with me and the publisher, HarperCollins, the truly unexpected happened – Boundaries made the New York Times bestseller list for the first time in the book’s 23-year history! Sales and visibility increased, and we are the beneficiaries of a lot of hard work by all involved. However, I’m convinced that we achieved these great results because of Rob and WildFire Marketing.”

“We hired Rob Eagar to come alongside a first-time author to assist in positioning him and his product in the marketplace. Rob left no stone unturned. He made sure our author understood how to organize his book to maximize marketing and search hooks, how to appropriately promote the book during interviews, how to use video as a vehicle to teach and promote, and how to develop a website that would establish him as an authority on his subject. Rob built confidence and competence in our author in these areas and proved to be an invaluable resource for our publishing company.”
