The Painless Self-Promotion Coaching Program
I've been diligently researching all aspects of this crazy book marketing/self-promotion biz for close to two years now. I've read some amazing books, met some incredible people, hosted a couple of quite-helpful on-line courses, and learned a TON of stuff about techy stuff, relationship marketing and, even, about myself.
My biggest takeaway from this adventure is that I've had to get over myself and try things that scare the bejeebers out of me. You see, I cherish my solitude. I love quiet days, all alone in my comfort zone with my craft and my books. Can you relate? I think you can. But the deal is, if I/we don't stick our necks out and let people know about our work, it's all for naught.
The conundrum is that, whether we're pre-published or mega-stars, we know we need to wrap our heads around aspects of this self-promotion stuff but we don't want to be perceived as icky, salesy, pushy, or self-absorbed, either. All that, plus learning the digital skills to get the job done seems insurmountable! To take it further, maybe you're interested in creating an online course, yet you're baffled by budgets. Palms sweating? Feeling palpitations? Take a breath. We can handle this together.
Keeping in the original C3=V theme (the title for the second on-line course I presented), the help I'm offering is that we work together on whatever marketing aspect that you deem pertinent in a three-week, one-on-one, online coaching session. Yep, that's right. A painless self-promotion support group. You and me. We can do this. Here are just some of the topics we can team up to work on.
Create a social media strategy
Establish and meet publicity goals
Develop a rapport with local and regional enterprises
Attack fears of developing digital aptitude
Kick the impostor syndrome to the curb
Develop deeper relationship with current mentoring students online
Develop online coursework from previous presentations

Here’s how it works:
First of all, we’ll schedule a brief, one-on-one discussion during which you describe the skill you desire to achieve. Together, we establish a three-session plan to meet that goal and develop the specific skill required to do so. This plan will be the structure we’ll follow during our time together.
Our shared content and correspondence will be shared using a project planning software called Trello. It’s super easy to use. Believe me. You will LOVE it!
We’ll hold our coaching sessions on Zoom, an easy-to-use video conferencing software. We’ll share screens during each coaching session. You’ll do the work. I’ll guide you along the way. Upon completion of each session, I’ll send a link for the audio recording of our time together. It’s your to refer to whenever you need to.
It’s important to consider session attendance a priority. The skills you’ll be learning will be sequential, each building upon the other. Scheduling make-up sessions is problematic as time slot availability is limited. Once we get your sessions booked, let’s do all we can to honor our time together. Sound good?

I’ve helped lots and lots of authors navigate their way through this crazy thing called self-promotion. I’d consider it an honor to help you, too.
