Join in for a LinkedIn Popalooza and Power Game

May 18 at Noon Mt

Are you leveraging your author power on LinkedIn?

If not … just get registered now: https://bit.ly/LinkedInPopalooza

And, did you know that a great LinkedIn presence can demonstrate to your audience—those book buyers, speaking, coaching, consulting, referrals, and yes FOLLOWERS—that you’re a thought leader and influencer. It’s an invaluable platform for nurturing relationships and rocking your personal brand and positioning you to sell more books. Even get speaking gigs.

With more than 810 million members in more than 200 countries and territories, LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network on the Internet. And it is one of the top FIVE social media tools being used by marketers!

Most who are on LinkedIn are baffled about what to do once they’re on the platform. PLUS, there are some HUGE changes that have rolled out recently … are you tapping into them? If you haven’t done an update since January, you are losing out. Could that be you?

If so, join in at NOON Mountain time on May 18th. That’s when Debra Jason will present a fun, game show program about creating a zippy and zappy profile on LinkedIn and so much more.

During this session you’ll explore how to:

• Avoid seven of the most common (and costly) LinkedIn mistakes.
• Create a profile that is forty times more likely to open doors to opportunities through LinkedIn.
• Receive fourteen-twenty-one more profile views with one simple step.
• Initiate simple, engaging conversations and nurture prosperous relationships that lead to long-lasting success
• Discover the all-new Creator portal and how to use it.

Your LinkedIn Presenter …
Author of Millionaire Marketing on a Shoestring Budget, Debra Jason will work with you to write compelling marketing messages that captivate and convert your prospects into loyal raving fans. She’s all about fast forward your marketing skills so that they increase their visibility adding to your success quotient.

Firehose Saturday Morning Book Marketing

Firehose Saturday Morning Book Marketing at AuthorYou with Dr. Judith Briles

ONLINE Saturday, June 4th, 2022
8:30 am MT, 10:30 ET

When it comes to authors and book marketing, it may be an Apple Pie and Ice Cream experience … or Crème Brulé with a Dill Pickle Topping. Kinda ugh. Whether marketing is fun or an overwhelming tsunami, there are tips, tricks, and tools that can calm your author resistance and get things moving once again.

  • How effective is yours?
  • What’s working?
  • What hasn’t?
  • What portals, software, tools are you currently using?
  • How often do you shout out you and your book?
  • Is your marketing all DIY or do you get help?
  • Are you open to new strategies and tips?

The #1 thing for authors to do is market their books. Let’s do it with some fun; some flair, and get results. If that sounds like something you would like to experience, get registered for the final First Saturday program before summertime hits. The next one will be in September.

Your Presenter is Judith Briles, author of 42 books, with over ONE MILLION sold since she published her first book in June of 1981 under the wings of a New York publisher. In 2000, she crossed over to Indie Publishing, creating her own press and taking on all publishing and marketing aspects of a book … and that’s when sales soared.

Register NOW last day for early bird discount is Monday, May 30th   -registration increases $10

AuthorYOU Members$30
