ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Brands are not only something that companies or bestselling authors have, but every single writer. As soon as you start to create a digital footprint you’re leaving a trail behind you. Every post, every picture, every quote, every comment online says something about you, the way you think, and the way you interact with the world. All those breadcrumbs add up to something, which is the way you’re perceived online. If you take that perception seriously you start to understand the power of your brand and how you can better communicate your point of view in your writing and online platform.
As her role of Director of Literary Branding at P.S. Literary Carly Watters coaches writers on establishing a unique author brand, building an engaged online following, using social media effectively and encouraging career growth through digital marketing. She’ll show you how to do the same.
