BANGOR — The Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance is holding the seminar, “The Gradual Yes Method of Sales: A Presentation of Marketing for Authors” from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10 at the Bangor Public Library, 145 Harlow Street. This free-to-MWPA-members ($15 for non-members) presentation will offer strategies for avoiding burnout by breaking down book marketing tasks into realistic steps.
Instructor Jane Karker combines her fifteen years of corporate sales experience with the best practices she has learned from working with more than two hundred authors to publish and market their books. Karker will provide overviews of both traditional publishing and self-publishing, as well as explore marketing methods using both traditional and digital approaches. Attendees will receive live marketing links for internet marketing, as well as a digital workbook to list, schedule, and implement their marketing tasks. These tools will be introduced in conjunction with the “Gradual Yes Method” of sales—a technique consisting of ten basic sales truths developed specifically for authors.
This workshop is open to published and unpublished authors.
