  • How to Build a Tribe Online And Form a Community of Readers
    Feb 14 2024

    A few years ago, the popular buzzword in the author world was "tribe." Building a tribe of readers was seen as the key to success. Reader relationships are still important for authors, so why did the term "tribe" go out of fashion?
    Having a tribe of readers is still an incredible asset that will help you sell your books and raise your profile amongst readers, but you need to know how and where to build a tribe if you want it to grow.
    In this week's episode, you'll learn:

    • The difference between a platform and a tribe
    • Why authors need a tribe
    • How large your tribe needs to be
    • Where to gather your tribe to ensure a positive experience

    If you've been wondering how to listen to your Timothy or eavesdrop on a conversation between several of your target readers, listen in to find out how and where to build your tribe or check out the blog version of this episode.

  • How to Market With No Money
    Feb 7 2024

    Two authors recently asked me the same question: “What should I do if I have no money for book marketing?"
    It’s a question that requires exploration and evaluation. If you have the same question, you may be at a crossroads. You have two options if you want to write but have no money for marketing.
    In this week’s episode, we’ll examine the two paths forward from the no-money conundrum. You’ll discover

    • Whether money spent on writing is an expense or an investment
    • How to turn the “expensive option” into the “budget option”
    • How and where to invest your time when you don’t have the funds for publishing

     If you feel stuck because you want to write but you have no money to fund your writing, listen in and discover your next steps forward, and be sure to check out the blog version with all the links and articles I reference.

A Must-Listen for Authors

There's simply no one else out there with the wisdom, experience, and common sense that Thomas Umstattd displays in podcast after podcast (not to mention his many webinars). Any author who is at all involved in marketing his own works--and certainly all authors who self-publish--should take advantage of this extraordinary resource.
