Wasn’t this blog from GeniusLinks eye-opening? If you haven’t read it, definitely do so now! I’ll definitely be signing up for this service because, whoa. What a ‘genius’ idea!

The Geniuslink team has generously donated 10 authors $30 in credit (15,000 clicks) to be used over a six-month time period. Accompanying the credit, each winner will also receive a free 20-minute onboarding session to help them get set up and running.
I was SO excited to share this post with you from CoSchedule! It’s one of my all-time favorites. As I mention in my BadRedheadmedia 30-Day Book Marketing Challenge, the CoSchedule free headline analyzer is one of the top tools any writer needs to use for their headlines — I also have used it for book titles, emails (they even have an email headline tool now!), and more. This article expands on what works and what doesn’t. Bookmark this article!

Author and publisher Blaise Ramsay discusses the importance of live events (conventions, conferences, festivals) as opposed to only promoting our books online.

Author platform expert Alexa Bigwarfe discuss the crucial importance of effectively growing and establishing your author platform. A good marketing strategy is important, but if you don’t have a reader base, how will anyone know who you are or be motivated to buy your book?
Read this post. Then re-read it again. Even if you don’t win this giveaway, read everything this expert writes and become a raving fan of hers. Alexa is generously offering a 30-minute 1-on-1 consultation (Value: $125)
