Inside Look at a Launch Team

You’ve heard me talk about launch teams several times, but I thought it would be helpful to share my experiences with my latest release. (This Treacherous Journey, released Feb. 6th, 2018.)

Before I began to prepare for this release, I had about 20 wonderful people on my launch team. I knew I wanted to grow the team for this new book, so about three months before the release date, I sent an invitation to my email list, explaining what the launch team was and offering the chance to join (through a screening process).

Grow Your Marketing Skills through Group Coaching

Posted on

Sample Book Launch Plan (1)

I’m starting something new…Marketing Group Coaching!

I love working one-on-one with authors, but there are only so many hours in a day… And I also believe there is great power in small-group learning!

Over a 10-week course, we’ll work in groups of about six authors, diving deep into the following topics that are critical to effectively marketing books:

  • Find your Target Reader
  • Grow Your Email List into a powerful tool
  • Build an effective Launch Team
  • How to get more Amazon Reviews (and why it matters)
  • How to find and work with Influencers in your target audience to widen your reach

Through a combination of videos and group chats (as well as a private Facebook group), you’ll receive in-depth training, actionable feedback, and built-in accountability to help you succeed in each of these areas.

Each coaching group will be open to 6 authors, and this first group will begin within the next few weeks. We’ll schedule the live sessions at a time that works for each group.

I’m offering a 50% discount for the first group, and wanted to give you, my blog family, the first opportunity.
