Sierra Writers is pleased to announce its November speaker, Stephanie Chandler, presenting “Own Your Niche on the Internet and Beyond: Simple Strategies to Build Your Audience and Sell More Books” at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Before self-publishing her first book, Chandler decided to build an audience online. The success of that effort led to book contracts with several traditional publishers, corporate sponsorships, major media coverage, product sales, and a variety of other opportunities. In this content-rich presentation, she shares the lessons that authors can use to effectively build an audience online. The meeting is free and open to the public Wednesday in the Madelyn Helling Library Community Room in Nevada City.
Chandler is the author of several books, including “Own Your Niche: Hype-Free Internet Marketing Tactics to Establish Authority in Your Field and Promote Your Service-Based Business,” “Booked Up! How to Write, Publish, and Promote a Book to Grow Your Business,” “From Entrepreneur to Infopreneur: Make Money with Books, eBooks and Information Products” and “The Author’s Guide to Building an Online Platform: Leveraging the Internet to Sell More Books.”
Chandler is also founder and CEO of AuthorityPublishing.com, specializing in custom publishing for nonfiction books and social media marketing services, and BusinessInfoGuide.com, a directory of resources for entrepreneurs. A frequent speaker at business events and on the radio, she has been featured in Entrepreneur Magazine, BusinessWeek, Inc.com and Wired magazine, and she is a contributing blogger for Forbes.
