Join the St. Louis Publishers Association on September 14 and learn “How to Utilize Your Networks to Sell Books”, presented by Author, Public Speaking Coach, and SLPA Board Member Kevin Desrosiers. 


We all have networks of friends and acquaintances. Are you effectively utilizing them, without being pushy, to sell your upcoming or existing book? As self-published authors, we are responsible for marketing our own books.  You can’t do that all on your own. Your networks are a tremendous source for support.  They can reach people and open many doors that you do not have direct access to.  


It isn’t as simple as just asking your network of friends to promote or sell your book though. It takes time to build interest and not make them feel like you are just another person marketing their product. 


In this presentation you will learn:  

  • How to identify your existing networks that can help 
  • How to find and develop new networks 
  • What your networks can do for you 
  • How to start generating interest from your networks and when to use them 
    • One sentence pitch 
    • Positioning Statement 
    • Elevator Pitch 
  • When to start the book networking process 
  • How networking has benefited Kevin’s book sales
