How to Maximize Your Amazon Sales Page with a Great Blurb
with John Byrne Barry
Before self-publishing, the publishers wrote the blurb. Now you’re the publisher, and you need a killer blurb to make your book visible in today’s crowded marketplace.
This is a hands-on workshop — we will solicit blurbs from authors in advance, and together, make them memorable. We’ll devote five to ten minutes to each blurb, putting the draft up on a slide on the shared screen and brainstorming and editing in real time.
If you would like us to edit your blurb in the workshop, submit a blurb of 200 words or less to [email protected] by Thursday, March 17. (But shorter is better.) One blurb per participant. Fiction or nonfiction. If you have a book cover, send that too, and I’ll include that on the slide next to the blurb. First-come, first-served. See more in How to Submit Your Blurb for Our March 19 ‘Killer Blurb’ Workshop.
You can participate in the workshop without submitting a blurb.
You’re welcome to submit a shorter blurb, for social media or Amazon ads, which limit you to 149 characters. (That’s how many are in this paragraph.)
This workshop WILL be recorded and a link will be sent to all paid participants by 6 PM on the following Monday.
In addition, tickets are available below for members who just want the recording for $15.00 each.
