Marketing wisdom tailored for you.

One of the secrets of the book publishing process is that writing the book is only half the battle. Once you’ve got a book in hand, you have to actually sell it.
These days, not even traditional publishers can be counted on to get your book into the hands of readers for you. You have to build your own platform from which to sell all those beautiful copies.

Building a sizable platform can seem daunting when you’re just getting started. But it doesn’t have to be! In truth, it’s a step-by-step process that can be easy and fun. And better yet? You don’t have to do it alone.


Nothing feels better than receiving a message from a reader whose life was changed by your book. Better yet when it’s someone you don’t know personally—someone who found you through the grapevine of your author platform.

Your author platform consists of:

  • Your email list
  • Your social media following
  • The newsletters you send
  • The blogs you write
  • The videos you post
  • The podcasts you record
  • The speaking you do
  • The happy readers you get talking about your book

While it takes time and energy, working on your platform can be rewarding and satisfying. Let us help you map out your plan—and execute it for you, if you don’t have time.
