The road to publication is now more competitive than ever. Agents and publishers need to know you have an audience and can effectively market your book before they take a chance on you. That’s why it’s so important to build your platform before you’re published—and continue to refine it after your book is available for purchase. If you want to be a writer, the second most important thing you can do along with “write well” is “build a writer platform to sell more books”—and that is what this webinar focuses on.
This webinar helps you discover new, creative, online and In-Real-Life (IRL) opportunities to build your audience and gain visibility in the marketplace. Learn simple, creative, step-by-step ways to build an audience, land self-promotional opportunities, and get name recognition—and turn that into something you can sell to agents and publishers.

- What a platform is, why it’s essential for all authors, and examples of writer's online platforms
- 5 (or more) methods to build your platform and gain visibility—and an audience including events, speaking, & SEO (Search Engine Optimization) basics
- The dos and don’ts of successful self-promotion
