Quite often on this site, we recommend books or we excerpt books by permission, and provide a link to Amazon. These are affiliate links, and I am an Amazon Affiliate. So is Porter Anderson and other guests at this website. This means we might be paid a commission if you buy what we recommend from Amazon. (This does not increase the price you pay.)

We are required by law to tell you this.

But—also—we hope that you agree this is an excellent and non-intrusive method to help cover the costs for hosting this site and providing useful information and reporting. If you’re especially grateful for the content you find here, then you can proactively click here to shop at Amazon, and let Amazon pay us a commission on your purchases! Again, this is at no cost to you, and is an easy way to help support the work that goes into this site.

Master the Principles of Social Media Without Feeling Like a Marketer

Jane's newest online course focuses on how to take a holistic and strategic approach to social media that’s based on long-term reader growth and sound principles of online marketing. You won’t find gimmicks or short-term approaches here. Rather, my philosophy is that (1) your work—your writing—is always central, and (2) you have to enjoy what you’re doing on social media for it to be sustainable and eventually become a meaningful part of your author platform.

A big challenge for authors is deciding what types of marketing will work for them strategically, and figuring out what will be effective in cutting through the noise without consuming huge amounts of time. Over the course of 12 weeks, our goal will be to answer this question for you, eliminate as much guesswork as possible, and retain your authentic voice regardless of your strategy.
