Building Your Author Platform

Building Your Author Platform

As a new or even established author, you need to let people know you’re out there. I remember thinking I could write the book and it would sell enough to let me quit working at our restaurant. Ha! No one knew who I was. I wasn’t even on Facebook at the time, much less Instagram and Pinterest.

“If I knew then what I know now.”

How many times have you said or heard that line? That’s what Building Your Author Platform is all about, knowing what you need to know to build an audience for your books.

Heck, this doesn’t just apply to authors, it applies to everyone selling a product.

80/20 Rule

Just remember when you’re building your audience that you don’t want to beat them over the head with “buy my book” posts and emails. You want to give them value, and you want to let them know you’re good for entertainment even if they don’t purchase you’re product. You want them to be begging for your book, and the next book.

But I barely have time to write…

We all get the same number of hours a day.It’s knowing how to use your time wisely that will help you build your audience and still give you time to write. That’s what this course is all about.

I’m proud to be able to help new authors learn how to get their first readers that aren’t family and friends. So check out Building Your Author Platform
