How to boost your brand and build your profile

If you want to give your writing the best chance for success, you need to build your author platform. And that starts well before you even finish writing your novel.

“Right now? Before I’ve even finished my novel?”

Yes, right now – no matter what stage of the publishing process you’re up to. The sooner you get started, the better. A strong author platform requires time in the game as much as time spent on it.

We can hear you say: “Can’t I just write a great novel?”

While you do need to write a great book, you also need to bear in mind that there is one new book being added to Amazon every five minutes these days.

So simply writing a great book is not enough. Which is why you need an author platform.

Where do you start? Right here, with this course. You’ll follow a step-by-step guide on what you need to do to build a strong author platform as a fiction author.

I found the Build Your Author Platform really helpful. With many platform tips covered in the one place, it saved me a lot of time from having to research so many different aspects of social media myself. I've gone from social media adverse, to absolutely loving what it can achieve.

Even though I have worked in the online space for many years, I still found the Build Your Author Platform course beneficial.
