Book Promotion Using Virtual Presentations

with Publicity Coach and Speaker Steve Harrison

How can we market in a pandemic? MiPA’s May virtual meeting speaker, Steve Harrison is a marketing expert who says authors and publishers can use webinars and other virtual presentations (webcasts, web classes, teleseminars, Facebook Live videos, and more) to sell books and expand their reach … mask-free.

“The most successful authors and experts are committed to learning how to market themselves.”

During MiPA’s May meeting, Steve will talk about:

  • Why you should be doing virtual presentations before you write your book.
  • The 4 things you must have to monetize your virtual presentation.
  • The 10 biggest mistakes people make when doing virtual presentations.
  • How to do a virtual book signing.
  • Best of all, you don’t have to be a “tech geek” to succeed with virtual presentations.

On Tuesday, May 12, call in or access our online meeting using the Zoom app on your computer or mobile device or call in from your phone. Connection details below.
