Newsletter Building Services

We spend all this time trying to build our followers on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, then post an update and no one sees it! Frustrated? Yep.

The Indie Academy #21
That’s why building your newsletter is the most powerful tool you have. You have direct access to your fans and even if you haven’t launched a book for twelve months, you know exactly how to find them.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not as easy as adding a bunch of people to your list and they’ll buy all your books. It’s your responsibility to turn your subscribers into true fans.

But of course, you can’t turn them into true fans if you don’t have anyone on your list.

Getting our help isn’t as expensive as you might think. Let us build your newsletter for as little as $20 per month. Or we can teach you how to do it yourself.

Visit our website or email with any questions.

There’s Literally No Reason Why You Can’t Write A Book

The Indie Academy #3

When I was a kid I used to get pretty bad insomnia, so instead of sleeping I would curl up in bed and tell myself stories. They started out as single scenes but sometimes I got so excited about my imaginary world that I would let the story play out in instalments, each night picking up where I left off.

Sometimes I would whisper the dialogue aloud and many of those characters were with me for months.

They’re my earliest memories of telling stories but at the time I didn’t realise those imagining would become real. Those secret stories didn’t have to exist just inside my head when I was meant to be sleeping.

It didn’t happen in an instant but I let those stories into my life and now they’ve become a career.

If you’ve ever thought about writing a book, you should know that there is literally no reason in the world that you can’t do it.

Don’t Need A PA? Perhaps You Have The Wrong Idea

The Indie Academy #20

You might think you’re not successful enough to hire a personal assistant, or you can’t afford it.

But perhaps you have the wrong idea…

What if you know you need a newsletter but you’re not sure how to build one?

Do you have a new release coming up but you’re not sure how to get the word out?

Social media presence is important but maybe you just don’t enjoy spending time on it?

You can hire our help for as little as an hour a month. We have some clients who only want newsletter building services and it costs them $5 a week. Or social media campaigns that include between 15 minutes to an hour a week – you’re call.

You can change your services anytime. You can add extra hours if you need more work than your originally thought. You’re in complete control.

Visit our website if you’re looking for more information. Or send us an email.

Make sure your book reaches enough people to catch fire!

The Indie Academy #2.png

As authors too often we sit back and think, ‘If my book is good enough it will find success.’ But the truth is that’s not good enough. 99% of successful authors busted their ass to get there.

If your book is well written readers will talk about it, but first you need to make sure it reaches enough people to catch fire.

Don’t feel disheartened because you’re not an instant bestseller. The majority of bestsellers hit that rank because of good marketing.

We spend good money on editing, we’ll invest in great cover art because we know it sells our product, but don’t forget the advertising budget. Obviously the more you have to spend, the better, but it doesn’t have to break the bank.

Make a COURAGEOUS decision and book promotions with your new release. STACK those ads and climb the Amazon rank. If you don’t know where to find cheap book promotions – ask.

We can arrange them for you if you’re short on time, but if you need to save money where you can it’s easy enough to do it all yourself!
