With in-person author events such as conferences, in-store launch parties, and book club gatherings on hold, how can authors do the best job possible in advertising, marketing, publicizing, and engaging readers? What’s the difference these days in publicizing and promoting for the indie book authors vs. traditionally published authors? Or has this line blurred? Let’s discuss how a 2021 marketing plan looks in light of the pandemic. Let’s share ideas and have a frank discussion about what it takes to get the most out of social media platforms and author marketing partnerships during COVID-19! And remember: The POWER IS IN THE PLAN!
We will review your social media platforms and develop basic content for establishing and/or enhancing your brand and helping you impact the bottom line — generate awareness and visibility to help you sell more books!
