Publishing technology has made it easier than ever to get your books out there – but how do you get anyone to read them? Self-published author Phil Williams will give a talk detailing the different techniques authors are now using to get noticed.
Starting with more traditional promotions areas such as book listings and blurbs, Phil will continue through to the various and rapidly evolving online marketing methods available. This includes promotions through book review blogs, email lists and social media, as well as advertising on major platforms such as Amazon and Facebook. Phil will also offer advice on how to write about your writing, to capture readers’ attention – and there’ll be an opportunity to practice writing your own straplines and mini-adverts.
Phil Williams is a self-published author of SFF fiction and non-fiction English learning guides. He started employing the marketing ideas discussed in this talk earlier this year – and has since found his books topping numerous charts (including reaching the Top 10 of all books on Amazon for grammar). He also freelances as a copywriter and as an advanced English tutor, giving him a wide field of writing knowledge.
