Eugene: Mid-Valley Chapter Workshop

June 2 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us for this special event. On Saturday, June 2, from 1-4 p.m., Maggie Lynch will share how to approach author marketing.

Effective Author Marketing

Maggie will share how she grew her mailing list from 400 to 12,000 in six months. This three-hour workshop will provide instructions for driving traffic to your mailing list and qualifying the signups as true fans. Maggie will also provide ideas on how to keep your readers engaged with subsequent mailings while you are writing the next book, how to get the most active fans to be part of your street team, and how to keep everyone engaged without becoming a sleazy salesperson.

Each platform works very differently. Each serves different author goals, and each presents different audiences and reach. Learn how to how to understand the metrics each platform provides so you can measure whether your ads are effective.
