As the author of 17 books (and counting!), and with a background in corporate marketing, Anita Revel knows a thing or two about selling books. Based on her book “Marketing for Authors” Anita takes workshop participants step-by-step through the marketing process, starting with the 11th Commandment!
"How will you get the 10,000 customers? How will you get to number one on Amazon? And how on earth will you clear your spare room of all that stock? The answer is with carefully planned marketing campaigns, a healthy dose of legwork, and a commitment to years of shameless self-promotion. While it's not always easy, this guide gives your shortcuts and tools that will save you years and tears."
