Do you want to develop an engaged audience for your writing and creative work?
The most effective way to do this has nothing to do with begging for followers, gaming algorithms, or learning the latest marketing trend.
It is about connecting in meaningful ways with real people, while leveraging tools new and old to do so.
If you are looking to develop your author platform, effectively market your writing, launch your book, or establish creative habits, you are in the right place.
I’m Dan Blank, and human-centered marketing is what I am here to help you accomplish. I offer the following programs to help you at every stage of developing and engaging your audience. In each of these programs, you get direct one-on-one feedback and assistance from me. I answer your questions directly, I brainstorm ideas with you, and I ensure you have a clear strategy to reach your goals.
Marketing for Writers
I have helped thousands of writers grow their audiences and ensure their writing gets read.
Be the Gateway
Learn how to authentically share your creative work, identify your ideal readers, and connect with them in a manner that feels natural, not promotional.
Create an outreach plan to find and engage your ideal audience. You will develop a Reader Connection Plan, and use my outreach scripts to get it done.
Launch & Promotion
Asking people to buy a book or join a service is hard. A lot of people learn that the hard way, launching a book that flops, or an online program that is empty.
To engage with readers, you need the channels to be found and connect with them.
Blogging & Email
Newsletters for Writers
Create an email newsletter people actually look forward to receiving, a blog that reflects who you are as a writer, and a simple process to manage it all.
Social Media for Writers
Instead of spinning your wheels trying to go viral, I encourage you to use social media in a manner that connects to your readers in a meaningful way.
Develop a plan to launch your new author website or improve your existing one. This is the place where you craft your identity online, showcase your writing, and connect with readers.
To ensure your writing connects with the world requires that you have clarity in what you create, effective creative habits, and a support system to ensure you reach your goals. If you have started and stopped writing again and again, if you have always missed a big creative goal, the programs below are where you need to begin.
Clarity Card Session
Prioritize your creative goals and learn to fit them into your otherwise busy week. This is a simple 5-step process to find more time and energy to make writing a priority in your life.
Creative Shift Mastermind
Embark on a step-by-step process to gain greater creative clarity, establish routines to increase creative productivity, and understand how to better reach your audience.
Creativity Cave Trolls
Learn to manage and overcome the common pitfalls that stop you from creating, such as fear of being judged, impostors syndrome, distraction, overwhelm, and more!
