May 12, 2018 – Alexis Daria – Building a Strong Platform Before (Or After) You Publish
As authors, a lot of things are outside our control. We can’t control sales or reviews, but we can control how we position ourselves before we go to market. Whether your goal is traditional or indie publishing, there are things you can do to build your platform for a strong start, strengthen it before your next release, or make the shift to a different publishing model. This workshop will cover: using social media to expand your network and engagement, creating an effective web presence, casting a wide (but targeted) net to boost your publishing odds, buiding your skills, and focusing on the promotional elements that are fun for you.
