CAA/SFC Webinar: Marketing Strategy for Authors – An Overview
June 9, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
A marketing plan for authors is a requirement if you intend to make writing a career. Even a basic understanding of the various sections of marketing will help an author understand both the needs of a publisher and the necessities in promoting themselves to develop a long-lasting career. The webinar will focus on the basic portions of a marketing plan and how that relates to author careers and the series they write.
As a result of attending this session, participants will be able to: understand how career and marketing goals and objectives work together to build a lasting career for an author; and understand how the marketing mix chosen can influence the acquisition of new readers and the development of existing readers into fans.
