    12 Days of Marketing For Childrens Authors- Day 5 - Amazon Book Page Opportunities!

    12 Days of Marketing For Childrens Authors- Day 5 - Amazon Book Page Opportunities!

    On the fifth day of Christmas my true Laurie  gave to me 🎶 🎁 
    When an author first starts to work with me, we start FIRST on the metadata (listen to Day 1 of this series) and THEN we look at their book page! It's just that important.
    When you first start publishing, you don't know what you don't know, but once you know... it can be cringy.

    Have a listen and then go look at your book page and see what needs improving!

    Today's bonus is a video on how to do your A+ content, which is a new addition to the book page since this episode first came out - watch it here.

    12 Days of Marketing for Childrens Authors - SUPERFANS, And Why We Love Them.

    HOW do we get those super engaged fans? And why do we want them even?!

    Day 4 of the 12 Days of Marketing for Childrens Authors is all about creating and nurturing super ENGAGED FANS! You don't need to be viral or have millions of fans, but with just a few hundred SUPERFANS every book launch would be a success, and your book business would grow exponentially!

    A great book to read about how to create and nurture these Superfans is by Pat Flynn and you can check it out here.

My #1 Podcast

Laurie’s podcast is my #1 go to podcast. She is so fun to listen to and always in the know on the best ways to spend the limited time you may have for marketing. She is approachable, clever, and widely (and accurately) considered the marketing guru for children’s authors.

5 Stars!

Being an independent author myself, I get asked a lot about ‘How to self-publish?’ — I always send people in Laurie’s direction as she has created the perfect streamlined process and has a ton of invaluable resources available! I didn’t have a lot of money to invest into my children’s book when I first started out, but with Laurie’s help and guidance it has become a #1 Best Seller!
