What's in the course?

Set up and optimize your author platform to guide readers down a pathway to purchase.

Building your platform is the single most important thing you can do for your business as an author or publisher. In fact, it’s almost impossible to achieve any measurable success without it.

For many writers, this is the worst part of the job. No one likes to be self-promotional – and the marketing slog (especially social media) can feel like a set of empty activities with minimal effect.

For many publishers, this is difficult because it relies on the strength of the stable. If your authors are good at marketing, you do well. If not, it's a steep uphill climb.

In this mini-course, we'll go beyond the basics to get into the important nuances of using your website, your blog, social media, and a sound email strategy to discover new readers and guide them down a pathway to purchase.
