What is Marketing and Branding?

Simply put: Getting yourself noticed AND remembered in a noisy world.

Most writers never learn how to do this — which is why most writers aren't published (or don't stay published). If you learn Marketing & Branding, you'll be able to take your career to unbelievable levels of success. If you don't? You'll have to cross your fingers and hope for the best.

Marketing and Branding is probably the least loved pillar of being a successful novelist, but it's the second most critical. (The first of course is to write a killer story.)

But, it doesn't have to be painful.

I kid you not! Will it take work? Yes. Will it make you stretch in areas you didn't think you could stretch in? Absolutely.

But the rewards are rich. And even if you're an introvert, you can do it. Really.

In this session, we take the foundation built in the (FREE) session on identity and use it to launch you into discovering your brand and then applying it to everything you do. I've owned a marketing agency for 25 years, and I know what makes companies fail, and what makes them succeed.

At our core, we don't love marketing because we want to sell things, we love marketing because we want to express who we are to the world and share stories that can change their lives. Stories that can entertain, encourage, and show them how to step into a richer life.

Our guess is you want to do the same. That's exactly what we teach you to do in this session.
