Free Workshop: Create a Personalized Author Marketing Plan

A marketing plan is a goal-oriented concept that describes what commercial processes you will involve in promoting, selling, or
distributing a product or service. This forum-style workshop will share ideas, ask questions, use lists, hunt down URLs, and learn new ways to create a personalized plan.

Workshop led by Kayelle Allen, fueled by participant input.

Cost: time spent learning.

Time: Forum style class without set hours. Come/go as your schedule dictates.

Dates: M-F, Jan 3-28, 2011

Where: Marketing for Romance Authors Yahoo! Group.

Marketing for Romance Writers is a group for authors (published and unpublished) , literary agents, editors, author promotion services, publishers, and artists. Its goal, as it relates to marketing books, is to seek, teach, learn, share, and succeed. We accomplish this by sharing promotional opportunities, asking and answering questions, and serving one another in a spirit of cooperation. Founder: Kayelle Allen. Group Owners:  Kayelle Allen, Marty Rayne, Jeanne Barrack. Newsletter Editor: Rochelle Weber. Bulletin Editor: Marty Rayne.

Start jotting down questions as they occur to you, and bring those with you when we start on Jan 3, the first Monday in 2011. This will be informal, relaxed, open, friendly, and no question will be too dumb or too “rookie.” We are here to help each other.

Edited to add- sorry the link to the group was broken- I’ve now fixed it!
