Joel has had remarkable success in building his email list—in fact, he has more than 40,000 people on various email lists, and they have become his primary marketing tool. Joel writes in a conversational style, mixes free information with commercial offers, and maintains a high level of engagement with his readers. He’s been launching the careers of self-publishers since 1994 from his book design and consulting practice at Marin Bookworks (also known as “JFBookman”) in San Rafael.
Authors and Email: The Missing Link?
If you’re an author, you already have too much to do—working on a book in progress, setting up your publishing company, promoting your book on social media and operating a blog. But what’s missing for too many authors is actually a key element for success in making publishing a profitable enterprise—a large email list of interested parties.
What you will learn from this program:
Master Email for Authors
In this two-part workshop, Joel will walk you through the steps to get yourself set up, and then put your email list to use.
Session 1: Building Your Email List
Session 2: Using Your Email List
There will be plenty of time for Q&A in both parts of the workshop, which is designed to be interactive. Bring your email questions and ideas—Joel would love to hear them.
