Easy Author Marketing

The Simple Solution That Sells Books

   Video Preview

The author marketing system for authors who hate marketing.

I get it -- you're a writer not a marketer. So why spend all day marketing when there's a much easier way?

I'm about to show how you can build an online fanbase and sell lots of books, using a simple technique that's fun, rewarding and very, very effective.

"Finally, the course that writers really need! Jon not only explains the secret to author marketing but also reveals techniques that work, step by step.

I was a marketer for 20 years before I wrote my first children's book (and I still work in marketing). These are the strategies that work to build a fan base. Do you think that giving away a free chapter is going to entice readers to try your book? No way! It's not about your book and it's not about you! The 'Real Author Identity' and 'Lead Magnet' modules are worth their weight in gold!

I highly recommend this course to writers."

From Jon Bard, marketing expert and co-owner of Children's Book Insider :

My name is Jon Bard, and I’m the creator of this program. As the co-owner of a publication for aspiring writers, I’m keenly aware of the frustration that many of you feel when it comes to marketing.

I understand — you didn’t sign up to be a marketer. You just want to write books and have people read them!

So I decided to help.

Although I’m known for my involvement in the writing world, I’m a marketing guy at heart. I used to own a public relations agency in New York, and I’ve coached many entrepreneurs on the subject. One thing I’ve learned — when marketing gets too complicated, it never works. A simple plan is always better than the kitchen sink.

So, rather than throw the kitchen sink at you, I’ve developed an easy-to-follow path that anyone can follow. And I know it works because marketers have been using similar techniques online for 20 years. In fact, what I’m about to teach you is essentially how Laura and I built Children’s Book Insider into the successful business it has become.

And, while simple, it's extremely powerful. So powerful that, unlike other marketing methods, it doesn’t need to be repeated over and over. Follow my steps to build the initial framework and the rest of your time can simply be spent on building your following — not messing with complicated marketing stuff.

Anyone can use the Easy Author Marketing plan. You don’t have to have great technical knowledge. You don’t have to be an attention-seeking extrovert. And — this is the really exciting part — you don’t even need to have already been published!

What Is Easy Author Marketing?

"I was afraid of the word Marketing before. After the very first unit in Module 1, the fear began to chip away. I was one of those that didn't embrace social media because I never felt a real purpose for using it, now I do!

Easy Author Marketing is a simple, easy to understand, and very great teaching system."

Marvene Spencer, children's writer

What a relief! Jon has given a clear step-by-step, easy blueprint to follow with marketing my books. The system is so easy, clear and concise that all you have to do is just start the course and follow the path Jon lays out. Just do what he says and you will be on your way to finding people who will want to read your work.

Easy Author Marketing will put any worries that you have about marketing your book aside. Actually, it will blow them all away! Understanding marketing will no longer be an obstacle.

Without question, the time I've spent with Easy Author Marketing is one of the best investments I've made in my publishing business this year!

So you're saying that someone with no marketing experience and limited technical skills can do this? And does it work for any genre of writing?
Absolutely. Easy Author Marketing is simple (though very powerful) and can be implemented by anyone with basic computer skills. The concept -- building a Tribe of followers and fans -- is applicable to any genre of writing.
This seems so different from what everyone else is saying. Why should I listen to you?
I have my feet in two worlds -- writing and marketing. As such, I understand what writers need, and I understand what actually works. Before becoming a co-Owner of Children's Book Insider, I was creative supervisor at a major New York Public Relations firm. I then opened and ran my own agency. For the past 25 years, I have taught and mentored many entrepreneurs on marketing and promotion. At the risk of sounding less than humble: I really know what I'm talking about! :)
I'm not yet published. Why should I learn this?
As an unpublished author you *especially* need to learn this. If you can build a fanbase now, you will have a receptive audience ready and waiting for your first book. That's *very* powerful, isn't it?
