Here’s the FULL LIST OF SESSIONS
(not in order of importance, just the latest additions first) –
Facebook – How to Get Your Posts Seen
Facebook can be an important tool, but if you don’t understand how FB determines what to display, you’ll end up one of those authors crying in the wilderness – “Is anybody out there? Please comment if you can see my post…”
Yet, once you know the rules of the game, you have a much better chance making it work for you. That’s what we’ll learn about in this session.
Amazon Author Page – Optimize It!
Whether you are traditionally or independently published, if your book is on Amazon, you can have a free Amazon Author Page just like the big names. What do you do to take advantage of this amazing opportunity? We’ll use a 7-Step Checklist to get your page up to speed.
And did you know, if you are part of a compilation or collection, you should have that book added to your page and you will appear on the book’s page, giving you added exposure and credibility!
How To Build that All-Important Email List
Platform! Are you sick of hearing about it? It’s not a new thing, the idea of developing a loyal customer base has been part of businesses for decades, even serving as a company asset when assessing value (sometimes called a ‘book of business’).
An easy way to build a platform you can use, and prove to publishers/agents (instead of saying “I have a bunch of FB friends and Twitter followers) is through your email list. We’ll look at tips and tools for growing your list.
Easy, Professional E-Book Publishing
E-books can be an effective marketing tool whether you are traditionally published or independent, writing fiction or nonfiction. They can give you that extra authority and make excellent gifts for loyal fans. However, while you might not have a problem writing the books, who has the time or knowledge to format and publish them? The answer is a simple, elegant, affordable program you will learn in this session. We will take a manuscript from Word to final form, ready for Kindle or Nook.
In addition to the sessions listed above, presented by Lynn Kinnaman, the three wonderful speakers listed below will share their experiences, tips, and secrets for finding readers, getting your book together, and following that dream.
