AUTHOR TOOLS + RESOURCES
On your author journey, you will be exposed to many ways to promote, market, and share your books and mission with your target audience. These are some of my favorite tools and resources to use as an author that I highly recommend to my clients!
All your graphic designing in one place. Create book flyers, social media posts, website graphics, pdfs, videos and more to help market and promote your books.
Mailer lite is a great email marketing tool to use to curate your customer and target audience following. Send emails, set up email automation, create landing pages to sell your books and grow your subscriber list, and more!
Loom is great for screen recording. Use it for author visits, showing others how to access your website and book resources and more!
Every author needs a website to sell their books. It's how you make the most profit and share more about yourself, your books, and your mission. Namecheap is my favorite place to go to purchase a domain for your website.
ALLIANCE OF INDEPENDENT AUTHORS
ALLI provides wonderful resources to authors on their author journey. Podcasts, Q&A, resources for marketing and promoting, tons of deals, and discounts. One of the best memberships you need as an author.
Designrr is great for marketing and promoting your books. Create Flipbooks that can be sent to schools, influencers, organizations, reviewers, and others to share your book digitally.
Most of these are free or have a free option, but for the ones that don't, there is a chance that they are affiliate links. That means the company gives me a small percentage of your sign-up fee at no extra cost to you. I personally have used the majority of these options and love them. The few I haven't, have been highly recommended by a client or colleague. Try them out and see what works for you, because everyone is different.
