spq29 author platformSteve’s Presentation

In one week, Steve is participating in the Author Marketing Live event. The virtual event, which runs from January 26 to January 30, has 20 speakers giving one-hour presentations. Learn more or register for Author Marketing Live at www.amlticket.com.

Steve will cover the following topics during his presentation:

Over the past three years, Steve has turned his self-publishing income into a full-time income. He’s had a few months where he hit anywhere from $50,000 to over 65,000, so he has the background necessary to provide advice on this topic.

Additional Presenters

Steve is looking forward to listening to the other presenters because he feels their information will add a lot of value to his business. These are a few of the presenters who will be participating in Author Marketing Live.

Steve attended the previous Author Marketing Live event in Cleveland. One of the major benefits of attending was meeting Derek Murphy, Sean Platt, Johnny B. Platt, Jim Kukral, and Bryan Cohen in person.

The problem with attending a live event is that it is expensive. Steve paid $400 for his plane ticket, a few hundred dollars for the hotel room, and a few hundred dollars on the ticket. He also had to travel for two days, reducing his productivity. Steve says live events are the way to go if you want to get out there and meet people, but it’s nice to check out presentations from the comfort of your home.
