Admit it. If you’re a writer, then you’ve likely dreamed of being a best-selling author. Many writers go to great lengths to study what great writers say about writing. We strive to develop ourselves in the craft of writing.

But being a great writer is more than just being able to write well.

Best-selling authors also do a great job of connecting with and nurturing their readership. And the most likely place to nurture those relationships (outside of their books) is through their online activity.

In this webinar, we’ll be taking a look the websites (and other digital properties) for 10 top-ranked authors. What are they doing on their websites and in social media to nurture their readers? How are they marketing themselves and their books?

Learn some practical website trends and strategies to help you develop your website and social media presence as a writer.

  • Add new email addresses (including “quick add” from your Dashboard)
  • Add email addresses for a domain that is not your primary domain
  • Manage email address settings

  • Set up your email in common email programs on your computer
