Eastbourne, Lewes & Seaford Group: Marketing Bootcamp
28 October @ 12:00 - 13:30 BST
Calling all best-selling and novice authors of all genres, traditionally and independently published. Join the Eastbourne, Lewes and Seaford Group for their next online meet-up on Thursday 28 October from 12pm for an online workshop on marketing.
This Zoom workshop is based on the belief that what works in marketing will vary from author, project and context and that there is wisdom and valuable experience to be shared amongst SoA members. Please bring your experience of marketing ideas that have worked for you and those you wouldn’t repeat, your plans and questions about marketing your next projects and your willingness to share ideas and participate in the conversation.
Aims of Session
- To mine the wealth of experience in the group – What marketing techniques and events have worked for you in previous projects? Who, what, where do you know of locally that has been or might be helpful for promoting your projects? What hasn’t worked or been worthwhile?
- To encourage members to design their own marketing strategies for their writing projects.
- To pool information about local resources, media contacts, venues in Eastbourne, Seaford & Lewes
- To explore ways of working together locally to promote one another’s work.
During this session
- We will split into small groups (ideally of 5) for 30 minutes and each writer will share briefly on marketing strategies that have been effective for them in the past (3 minutes each). After everyone has shared their experiences the group can discuss or explore the ideas in more detail.
- Return to main group for feedback (15 minutes)
- Back to small groups for another 30 minutes. Each person shares for 3 minutes ideas & questions about how they might market their next project, followed by an open discussion in the small group.
- Return to main group for final comments. All notes to be shared with local group organiser Vicky Cosstick afterwards and a summary will be prepared and sent to participants.
