Sell Your Books, Not Your Soul: Premium

Book Marketing and Promotion for the Rest of Us

You're an author. I'm an author. So believe me when I say I understand when you say you hate marketing. Wouldn't it be great if someone else would handle "all that selling stuff," and we could just write?

Unfortunately, that's not the world we live in. Unless you have the funds to pay someone else to do it for you, you're going to have to do something to help your audience know your books are out there. 

The good news is, book marketing doesn't have to be a chore. You can build an author platform and connect with readers using your individual strengths and interests. The Sell Your Books, Not Your Soul course will help you create a marketing plan you can live with--and maybe even enjoy. 

Course modules include: 

  • Finding your personal marketing style
  • The foundations of a solid author marketing plan
  • Choosing your four marketing pillars
  • Social media -  Should you, or should you not? And if you do, how do you make the most of it?
  • Getting reviews
  • Paid Advertising
  • Street Teams
  • ...and much, much more

This is a premium course with lots of individual instruction. As a result, enrollment is limited.

If you have a tighter budget or prefer to learn the information on your own, you might prefer the self-study version of this course.
