Getting a book DONE doesn’t just mean written–it means getting the book into the HANDS of readers. And in order to do that an author needs a PLATFORM. An author’s platform is the infrastructure needed for marketing and selling a book–and getting your message INTO the world. Why write a book if you don’t want to share it? Creating a platform and learning how to market your books (and associated services or products) is KEY to getting your message INTO the world…and even making money with your message.
The publishing industry is drastically changing right now, giving more responsibility to the author. But this isn’t all bad! Building an author platform is a lot of work but it can also be fun, engaging, and even empowering. It’s definitely not rocket science, and anyone can do it–including YOU!
Combining our knowledge and skills, Lisa Dailey from Sidekick Press and I (from The Narrative Project, of course!) are offering a 6-week deep dive class, Platform & Performance, to help you build and prepare your author platform.
Platform & Performance will cover:
~what a platform is and why do you need one,
~the three critical elements of an author’s online platform,
~how an author builds a following based in generosity,
~identifying language that will meet your audience, and
~how to make money-making opportunities related to your book!
We will help you to:
~get clarity about your goals for the life of your book,
~put the technology in place to launch your book,
~become proficient at creating and utilizing various platform-building tools (including social media),
~create a road map to your back-end products or services,
~engage with potential readers even before the book is in print, and
~sell books, because that’s the point!
