Marketing is critical for all authors: especially if you’re an indie author or one who self-publishes. This course will teach you five things you can do right now to build your audience and connect with readers in a way that makes them superfans. We’ll focus on ways you can collaborate with other authors and provide engaging content to your readers in a way that's easy for you—and even fun! We’ll cover some basics like creating an engaging author newsletter and using social media effectively, and move on to advanced strategies for building a tribe of authors who support each other in ways that promote growth for everyone.
