Do You Need Tips For Your Author Newsletter? Free Online Email Marketing Workshop For #Writers

 

email newsletter tips for writers

 

Save the date! On June 12 at 10 a.m. EST, email marketing strategist Meera Kothand will drop by the Shortcuts for Writers Facebook Group to discuss a different aspect of writing and editing that many authors have trouble with—how to write for your email list. Topics will include finding ideas to write about and how to craft engaging marketing copy for an email audience.

If you’re a published author, you probably have an email list, but may need inspiration for how you can best make use of it. If you’re an unpublished author, it’s never too soon to start collecting email addresses. Perhaps in the meantime, you can promote your blog, YouTube channel, or other authors in your genre. Since my Facebook group has a mix of beginners and established bestselling authors, rather than talk about expensive email platforms, we’re going to focus on simple techniques that you can use regardless of your mailing list platform.

As you may know, I recently launched the Shortcuts for Writers website and blog, and am working on finishing up my online course Book Editing Blueprint: A Step-By-Step Plan To Making Your Novels Publishable. I’m also working on creating a free line editing course, writing informative blog posts for writers, and shooting some YouTube videos. I didn’t want you to have to wait too long for great content, so when the opportunity arose to host Meera on my Facebook group, I was thrilled. After all, I have been following her for a while and find her books extremely helpful.

Meera’s latest release is 300 Email Marketing Tips: Critical Advice And Strategy To Turn Subscribers Into Buyers & Grow A Six-Figure Business With Email.

Here is the blurb for the book:

Does any of this sound familiar to you?

1. You sit down every week staring at that blinking cursor wondering what to send your email list, and then a week becomes two or more, and you can’t remember when the last time you emailed them was.

2. You have an opt-in incentive or lead magnet that’s pretty much doing nothing for you or your business.

3. You have a haphazardly thrown together email sequence that doesn’t bring you sales or engagement.

4. You silently cringe every month as you pay out your email service provider because you’re not using any of their features.

5. You’re pretty much winging it with email.

email tips for writersIf you’re nodding yes, 300 Email Marketing Tips will give you more than a bare-bones framework to put in place an email marketing strategy for your business. Here’s what’s packed in this how-to guide:

  • What branding has to do with email marketing and the #1 thing most solopreneurs ignore when it comes to their email list
  • 7 things your welcome email must do (but probably doesn’t!)
  • Why your lead magnet has to address THESE two critical points
  • 3 ways to plan your email editorial calendar
  • Answers to these questions and more:

– I have thirty thousand page views a month but get only 42 subscribers for an month. What am I doing wrong?

 – My email sequence gets a lot of engagement and opens. Everyone says they love my stuff, but I still get no sales for my e-book. Why?

Facebook groups for writers

Welcome to the Shortcuts for Writers Blog! In addition to launching this website and blog, I’ve started an online writing community on Facebook and am offering an exclusive toolkit to members. It’s called 7 Simple Steps To Nailing Your Book Blurb and will guide you through crafting your novel blurb in a series of 7 easy steps. It also lists the most common mistakes for back cover copy and gives examples of successful blurbs that have reeled in readers.

I’m really excited about this download as in my editing business, I see many clients who have trouble writing book blurbs. It’s not an easy task to boil down your book to one or two paragaphs and to make it sound enticing rather than having it read like a book report. I used to hate writing book blurbs until I came up with a system to make it easier.

You can download the free toolkit once you’re a member of the Shortcuts for Writers: Editing Made Simple Facebook Group. My goal with this online writing community is to inspire you during your writing and editing journey, share editing tips, and foster a sense of community. We’ve been having fun discussions on topics ranging from the aggravation of lay vs lie and awhile vs a while to the writing habits of Danielle Steel.

I’ve been working on my new Shortcuts for Writers website and blog, as well as a free 5-day self-editing class and my signature online course Book Editing Blueprint: A Step-By-Step Plan To Making Your Novels Publishable. Classes, blog posts, and YouTube tip videos are coming soon, but in the meantime, join the Facebook group where you can make some new friends and get started on writing a book blurb. Be sure to answer the quick admission questions and then you can get started. See you there!
