​In church settings we don’t typically talk much about marketing. But if you have a story to tell or if you want to help others, marketing is the way to reach people to let them know what you have to offer.

This webinar addresses the critical strategic and marketing aspects of marketing within a spiritual environment, and ​is particularly​ helpful ​for spiritual writers early in their publishing career. The presentation is strategic in that it deals with topics such as market positioning and social media strategy, but also tactical as we dive into the details of Facebook marketing and advertising.

Topics we will cover include: ​

  • ​Why social media matters
  • How marketing differs for spiritual writers
  • H​ow to find your niche
  • ​H​ow to build your platform
  • Guidelines for Facebook marketing and advertising​
  • Whether you should consider ​self-publishing​

After participating in this webinar, you will:

  • ​Feel confident in your approach to online marketing
  • Understand the strategic questions to ask yourself about selecting your niche
  • Understand how the publishing industry has changed and make more informed choices about publishing​
