Instructor: Kenzi Nevins
As authors, most of us wish we could spend more time writing and leave marketing to the experts, but in today’s world, social media is a necessary part of our job. Fortunately, with a little work, you can turn it in to a vehicle for reaching the world with your words, rather than a frustrating time-waster.

Video Marketing for Authors
Instructor: Hallee Bridgeman
We are in a visual, video society. If you want to reach readers, video is a perfect tool.

Bestselling author Hallee Bridgeman will show you different ways you can use video to capture your audience with the tools you already have.
