Virtual Marketing With A Book & Speech Retreat

You Are Cordially Invited By Henry DeVries of Indie Books To Kick Into High Gear

June 17 & 18, 2021 Virtual Marketing Retreat On Zoom

If you would be open to a conversation about attending my June 17-18 virtual Marketing With A Book and Speech retreat on Zoom, that would be great. The retreat is about how authors can add paid speaking to what they are doing. I limit this to 12 authors only, and currently we have a few spots left. The retreat helps authors get more bookings, more buzz, and more business so they can have more impact and influence.

Venue: Zoom. When you register we give you the code and password.

Content: No more ready, fire, aim. No more ready, aim, aim, aim. For you to have more impact and influence you need the right strategy, the right tactics, and the right execution. The magic is in the mix. Don’t you dare blame the pandemic for a lack of activity. Personally I am speaking more than ever. More Zoominars. More podcasts. More paid events. And I am booking paid events when we can get back into rooms together. You can shine a spotlight on your book and speaking by using a mix of strategies that are working now. Let’s spend six hours of brainstorming, getting feedback, and committing to an action plan to make that happen.

Schedule: The two-day Marketing With A Book and Speech Retreat begins on Thursday, June 17th with a three-hour session from 2-5 pm PT (4-7 pm CT, 5-8 pm ET). There will be homework for Thursday night. We reconvene Friday, June 18th for two sessions from 9 am-noon PT (11 am – 2 pm CT, noon-3 pm ET) and 2-5 pm PT (4-7 pm CT, 5-8 pm ET). This is not a pitch-fest. This retreat is a no-selling zone. All four books, tools and worksheet materials are included. No kidding. I limit the number of participants to 12 to keep it interactive. You will be asked to present and share several times over the course of two days. You will leave with a pragmatic action plan of what to do in 30 days, 90 days, and the next year. This is different than the IFF Forum and the three-day retreats we do when we can get together in the same room. There will be breaks between modules.
