June 28th – Diane Phelps on Marketing: Who Will Buy Your book? Identifying Your Audience

June 11, 2017 0 By JEANNIE

Identifying the audience for your book should be your first step as an author, certainly before finishing your book. Your marketing should be based on what you know about potential readers. In this workshop, you will use a worksheet supplied by the instructor to determine your best audiences and then describe them on multiple factors.

Diane Phelps founded Blue Sky Marketing Consulting LLC, to help small businesses succeed, and Red Rock Mountain Press LLC to self-publish Shade; a Story About a Very Smart Raven.
With the experience gained in self-publishing and marketing her first book, Diane published The Author’s Concise Guide to Marketing: How to Jumpstart Sales of Your Self-published Book for first-time authors needing skills in marketing their book.
