Come join me in my FREE webinar
and get a cool new ebook!
I’m going to confess something to you. I’m seriously nervous about putting on my very first webinar on APRIL 25. Although I teach workshops around the US, the thought of dealing with tech always makes my palms sweaty.
Have you ever attended webinars that suffer from tech failure? Halfway through the sound goes out? Or the video jams or the webinar crashes?
I participated in a whole lot of webinars in the last year, and about a third of them suffered some sort of tech blip. That’s why I’m a bit nervous. Tech and I have issues.
But I plan to plow through.
Because I have a lot of great stuff to share with you and other writers.
Since I launched my new online course Targeting Genre for Big Sales, I’ve been getting wonderful comments from students.
Here’s one I got just this week:
It’s very exciting to me to hear that authors are finally seeing the sales results they long for. And some of these authors are making only minor adjustments to their novels and Amazon product pages.
I’ll say this again: all the author platform in the world will get you nowhere if you don’t know how to target genre and target Amazon in a smart way. You can write a terrific book and never, ever sell more than a handful of copies if you don’t know how to optimize for big sales.
This one-hour webinar will cover these four key points:
1. Understanding what genre is and how Amazon interprets your book’s genre
2. How to find a niche genre that has high demand but manageable competition
3. How to deconstruct books in your genre to know how to write to fit in and sell well
4. How to optimize your Amazon product page for discoverability.
Learning the strategies of these four key aspects of targeting genre will give writers the best chance at discoverability and big sales.
Don’t waste years trying to figure out the secret to discoverability.
Join in the webinar and learn how to apply these strategies today!
If you come join in the webinar, you’ll get a time-limited awesome discount on my targeting genre course AND I’ll send you my upcoming new cool ebook (it’s a special release I’m working on, just for my list!)
