Our Author Branding Bootcamp starts November 28!

It’s gonna be intense, so you’ll need your strength.

Rest up this holiday. Eat well. Shop. And, most importantly, be thankful.

Not just one day, but everyday!

What I’m thankful for?

Good family, good friends, great business, Netflix and all of you who will be attending the AUTHOR BRANDING BOOTCAMP Nov. 28-Dec. 4

Here’s a reminder of the schedule:

“you don’t know jack about author branding”

This will give authors an overview of what a brand is, why they should have one and some examples of awesome author brands. We’ll break down some pretty cool brands into bite-sized chunks that help you understand why they keep you coming back for more.

“target your brand. p.s. don’t use a shotgun.”

In this post we will teach you how to create a targeted author brand. We’ll get all frou-frou and help you create a branding roadmap to take you from the unbranded flub you are now to a branding diva, or whatever the masculine equivalent of diva is- I’m thinking pimp, maybe?

“branding vehicles. no lemons here, people.”

This will outline cool vehicles authors can use to brand themselves. We’ll also highlight a few “best practices” to give authors ideas on how to use these vehicles effectively.

“don’t let your brand get stale. it leaves a bad taste in our mouths.”

This post will teach authors how to keep their brands current, but consistent. Branding is a never-ending process and you have to both keep up with the times and be ahead of the curve in some respects. Don’t miss it. We’re excited about this one!

“author branding case study. because it makes us sound all official.”

We will pick one lucky author from our visitor/subscriber pool to do a case study on! What does this mean exactly? We will evaluate your brand and give you branding tips, insights and a stockpile full of ideas on how to develop your brand over the next year. Year, I said! More details about this coming soon.

At the end of the course, we’ll offer a free handy, dandy eBook download of all the materialsto subscribers of the Creativity Loft News List (less frequent updates from us) and the Blogfeed list(daily updates from our blog posts). The download will only be available for a limited time.

I’d suggest signing up for the blogfeed to make sure you don’t miss any content. Plus, at the end of the course, you’ll have an email with every, single post for referencing later. That way you won’t have to search around my site for the information.

And share this with friends, email loops, family, colleagues and anyone you think could benefit from this free bootcamp. Don’t be stubborn. Share the wealth, people.

And, before I forget, if you have any ideas or requests for future bootcamps, content, or just things you want to know more about, here on the Creativity Loft site, feel free to leave a comment or you can ping the content minions at henchmen (*at*) creativityloft.com.

Happy Thanksgiving! I’ll see you guys next week for the AUTHOR BRANDING BOOTCAMP!
