posted in: Podcast 1

In this episode Chris introduces a short series on disruptive marketing. Because traditional methods we’ve been using for years are not delivering as well as they used to, it may be time to shake things up going into 2019. Not for the faint of heart.

Links & Show Notes:

-Why readers’ desires are going to dictate the direction of marketing.

-Why books don’t sell: is it your marketing or is it the book’s quality?

-Why your idea of success needs to determine your marketing strategies.

-The two applications of disruptive marketing we’re going to cover in the series: writing to market and giving your current books a facelift.

-What we need to keep going forward (don’t throw out the baby with the bath water):
