Duolit Courses: Facebook, Mailing Lists and Blog Tours

Going live today are three very worthwhile workshops for writer/authors (and for creative artists too, I must add). The Duolit team – Shannon and Toni, have been working on three weekend workshops, with beta responses from a group of people signed up as Weekend Warriors – of which, I am one. So, I got access to all three courses over April, and can tell you that I learnt from every single one.

If you’re after up-to-date advice on the latest methods to grow your author platform, have a look at these courses. I’m not an affiliate but I have gone through all three courses, and they work. In fact, the Duolit latest newsletter quotes me about the courses with the following –

“I thought I knew quite a lot about mailing lists and Facebook, but I was wrong. Both Mailing List Magic and Facebook Facelift workshops contained lots of new knowledge for me. I think the additional bonus downloads and forms and things were the most helpful surprises!”

Facebook Facelift

FF Facebook Facelift is designed to help you create a Facebook fan page as an author (or for a book or book series) – covering the differences between profile and pages, profile and cover photos, helpful apps for authors, how and what to post onto the page, ways to get your page liked, and productivity help such as setting up a posting schedule.
