Articulating Your Author Brand: Your Foundational Narrative

The key to marketing that builds an author’s reach is articulating a cohesive, compelling Foundational Narrative about who you are, what you write, and why. Too many authors can’t articulate their brand, their “why,” or their mutually beneficial purpose to connect with a dedicated audience who will anticipate your work!

In a connection economy, stories are the currency. Marketing in the 21st century relies on transformative tales, succinct storytelling, and a powerful purpose. You may know yours, but it can be hard to choose the right words to strike a chord with your audience.

Let us help.

In articulating compelling and comprehensive Foundational Narratives for authors, we must differentiate you from a crowded marketplace to build exposure, awareness, and engagement.

The Foundational Narrative includes…

  • Vision
  • Mission
  • Tagline(s)
  • 5-10 paragraphs of Anchor Content to drive all marketing storytelling
  • Boilerplate
  • Core Values/Guiding Principles

This sounds business-y, of course. But the difference between an author who writes quietly in a corner of their home and one who sells thousands of books and has a riveted audience is being able to articulate who you are, why and what you write, and what you care about.

Over the course of 8 weeks, we’ll work together to dig down into the depths of how your writing career came to be, why you do the work you do, and who should read your work. Your Foundational Narrative is the first step in creating marketing that works. Once you know who you are and why you do what you do, you can communicate that to the people who need you most.

You’re a writer. It shouldn’t be hard to write a great story about your Author Brand, right?
