Knowing your market can be one of the most difficult parts of being an author/entrepreneur. You write the book, but getting it out there seems overwhelmingly impossible – no one is buying it! Why? Oftentimes it is because authors are marketing to the wrong audience! To find your niche, you need to understand what your story is and who will read it. Once you do that you can start building your base – the readers who come back over and over to buy your stories and who become your super fans that share.

  • Learn how to identify your specific readers.
  • Design marketing that works for you – Stop the confusion.
