A 2-hour Workshop:
Marketing Best Practices
with Artemsia Publishing Manager Geoff Habiger
Saturday: July 9
12:30 – 2:30 pm
SWW members: $20 ♦ Non-members: $30
Marketing is the top thing that authors say that they struggle with, and when you look at the Big 4 publishers and the money they throw at their bestsellers, it’s understandable that you may feel more than a little daunted by the prospect. I will present marketing best practices I have learned over 18 years as a publisher. These may not turn your book into a New York Times bestseller, but I hope that they will give you the inspiration that marketing is not as scary as it seems. Whether you are self-published or traditionally published, and even if you don’t have a large marketing budget (especially then), I hope that you will take away something new to help you market your book. Topics will cover: Advertising on a Budget, Best-seller or Bust (events and promotions), The Importance of Newsletters, Awards!, Book Bloggers are our Friends, and Unconventional Marketing Tips.
