I LOVE WORKING WITH WRITERS, (WHETHER YOU ARE A SEASONED AUTHOR OR JUST BEGINNING), TO CREATE A COMPELLING BRAND THROUGH THE POWER OF STORY!
I’ve teamed up with a few trusted friends to provide you with the help you need to develop the successful brand you are looking for.
Below you will find several services and tools geared toward content and image branding and marketing. My intent is to provide a unique marketing experience that incorporates individualistic styles and preferences.
For the last two decades, I’ve spent hours learning how to build a brand as a professional writer. It wasn’t easy. I struggled to learn the basics of marketing while balancing relationships, (I am not a fan of spam or pushy sales).
Like many of you, I have no prior training or college degree in marketing. All I wanted to do is write. But I realized without a marketing plan, I couldn’t grow. In short, I didn’t want writing to become a hobby.
A few ways I developed my business include:
- diving in and experiencing what worked with trial and error
- doing a lot of research and reading on the subject
- embracing mistakes &
- pushing through the fear of rejection.
One day I came across a quote that changed everything.
“Start where you are, Use what you have, & Do what you can.”
~ Arthur Ashe ~
All of the sudden, the trepidation of marketing fell from my shoulders. I decided that although I didn’t have everything I thought I needed to market myself adequately, I did have some things. You may feel that marketing isn’t for you but you are more equipped than you think.
Listing your Assets
Make a list of your assets. Next, ask a few family members and friends to list ways you’ve helped or encouraged them. Compare your lists, I bet you’ll see some similarities.
You see, you already know where you’re gifted. Those gifts are exactly what you need to grow your business!
Marketing is less about selling a product or service and more about creating relationships. Think of the many people you come into contact with each day. How do you communicate with them? Are you a compassionate listener? Do solving problems come easy for you? Are you a natural born leader or do you enjoy working behind the scenes?
Your personality plays a huge part in how you will effectively brand and market yourself.
Creating Art as a Business
If you want to become a professional writer and get your creative work in the hands of others, you have to approach writing as a business.
