You want readers. You want to make a positive impact. You want money coming in. Which means you want sales.
But a single Google search yields a boatload of blog posts, podcasts, and tutorials with loads of information. Hop into any Facebook group, and you get even more opinions and advice. Who can you trust? How do you fit in writing?
Maybe you'll just binge-watch YouTube or keep churning out books. Enough quantity should replace marketing, right? And at least it won't be as stressful.
Or you can claim your sales and creative freedom.
When I got into the publishing industry ten years ago, I was a yet-to-be published author with two jobs, a ton of student loan debt, and an itch to write that I couldn't ignore. With my first writers conference came instant information overload. Exhaustion was inevitable--and boy, it happened!
Then I started creating systems to do the work and thrive even when I had only half an hour a day, or an hour a week, to work on marketing and online presence.
Along the way, I've become slightly obsessed with book marketing, communication, and sales. My mission: endless to-be-read piles and happy readers devouring books by their favorite authors.
I've helped many authors connect with readers, build a tribe, and convert that tribe to sales while still preserving their creative time. Now it's your turn.
By the end of this course, you'll be confident and ready to take on book sales and marketing. You'll come away with solid, no-stress systems and a resource guide to authentically reach your ideal readers while still having time to create.
This four month course includes sections on author and book branding, identifying your ideal readers, finding comparative titles, streamlining your social media, organizing your email newsletter and website for maximum results, and in-person sales/pitching.
And a group coaching community with daily feedback on your work and weekly live coaching videos and Q&A from your No-Stress Book Strategist, Janeen Ippolito!
Plus a bonus section on Weathering Sales Storms: Shifting, Surviving, and Thriving When Everything Explodes (or Dies)
