SPEAKER: Danielle Hampson, Executive Director, The Author Show
Danielle Hampson created The Authors Show, a professional online author interview program many years before internet stream radio and TV became popular. In 12 years of production, more than 4,000 authors from around the world were processed through the show, and she is leveraging the show’s following to promote “Give a Book, Give a Smile,” a children’s literacy initiative she developed to benefit local communities in the USA and Canada.
Being an author is a business where writing is the easy part. Marketing is the true challenge and most authors recognize needing help promoting their work.
The constantly evolving new technologies also make it difficult to understand how online tools can be utilized to enhance the exposure of the authors’ work to the book buying public.
This talk provides authors a clear understanding of the value of incorporating audio/video in a book marketing strategy; it teaches authors to present their work to traditional and online media show producers in a professional manner, and it reviews the common interview mistakes to avoid.
PRICING: $30 for members and guests. SEE PAYPAL INFO ABOVE. We are no longer taking checks or cash at the door. This is a workable and good system for all of us. Thank you for moving forward with SSWW.
