Mara Purl
What’s your THEME? Drill down until you find your aquifer: your pure, distilled message. Then what? Build your branding, your messaging, and your events from there: structure, form, slogan, take-aways, social media messaging, website style,and all-important event planning!

 

 

Judith Briles
Whether an author publishes with a traditional publisher, an indie or self-publisher, it’s the author who is responsible for the majority of book marketing. That means you. Your book is a product that needs to know and reach out to its potential buyer. You can’t snap without a marketable book; you can’t crackle without the know-how to push it; and you won’t pop unless you become the #1 cheerleader. And, you can’t have success without all three.

 

Susie Scott
You love the written word … how about the verbal one? A video can make your words crackle and pop in the eyes and ears of the viewer. Stunning graphics can accent your main points as they appear on the screen and stunning exits can pop them as they leave. Videos are sizzling hot for all ages…have you got yours ready?

 

 

Jeannette Seibly
When you talk about yourself and your books…do you sound like you’re bragging? To snap, crackle and pop awake your audiences requires bragging in a business savvy manner. But there’s a knack to it. Find out how to brag effectively!

 

 

Kelly Johnson
Now that you know how to snap . . . crackle . . . and pop . . . how will you DO all that needs to be done to succeed? Kelly Johnson will share trade secrets, techniques, and special apps and programs to implement your messaging.
