Setting goals to grow your author brand

Most authors have goals they want to reach. These could be pie-in-the-sky New York Times Bestseller, couch of the Tonight Show type goals. Or they could be more modest goals to finish your manuscript, secure an agent, sign a publishing contract or sell a certain number of copies. But are you taking consistent action to achieve those goals?

The actions you take to grow your platform – your newsletter subscribers, your social media followers, book buyers and event attendees – are strategies that build your author brand. Having some actionable steps you can take daily, weekly and monthly can keep you on track and keep your brand growing. We love this info graphic from as a starting point.
