Identify Your Audience

The most important issue for authors is making sure they sell a ton of books.  However, there are certain things authors have to know about their audience to truly relate to them, so that they will buy the book/s.

In this workshop you will learn the demographics of your potential readers and how to identify what drives them to satisfy their needs, wants and values. You will also learn the buying process and communication needs of your target market.
