Everything You Need to Know about Planning and Running Big-Bang Promotions
This is a two-part course.
In Part One, Andrea will teach you about Amazon algorithms, reviews, and launching and relaunching books and series. She'll give case studies for the relaunches she's done, and whether they've been successful or not. She'll also discuss, in great detail, download bonuses, working with other authors, and how to know if the algorithms for your books are struggling (and ways to fix them if they are).
In Part Two, Andrea teaches how to prepare your readers for downloading. She also goes over running small, big, and steady-traffic promotions. She shows you large promotions she's run along with things she learned from each and how she would do them differently. Her case studies also include several websites that consistently perform well for her and other authors.

"If you want to continue to be a minor league author and/or publishing company then stop reading and go waste your time watching funny animal videos on YouTube. If you want a shot at the big time audience growth and income then run and don’t walk in taking Andrea Pearson’s Publishing Strong courses. I fully expect my business to double if not triple in the coming year using what I’ve learned hearing her speak in person and most recently with the online classes."
