Feeling completely overwhelmed when it comes to figuring out what needs to get done (and when!) in order to build your online presence and market your book?
Wasting time on endless to-do's that don't really seem to be getting you anywhere?
Setting big goals and then having no clue how to actually break them down so you can achieve them?
Struggling to prioritize your massive writerly to-do list?
Wishing you had more time and more focus to write AND market your work? (Instead of only one or the other – or very little of either?)
What if you could attract droves of engaged fans, increase your author income, AND still have the independence to pursue your writing goals?
Psst, here’s a secret: You can.
If you're struggling to build your platform AND still find time to write (without pulling your hair out), I want to introduce you to my secret weapon:
Believe, Plan, Act: A Platform + Productivity Planner for Writers
This complete author business planning system is designed to specifically address the needs of writers working to build their platforms and author businesses – everything from tracking daily word counts and book sales, to strategic marketing, launch planning, and developing your author brand.
This is not a course, but a strategic, actionable and transformational planning tool to help writers focus on the results they’re after and the reasons they want to achieve them.
(It is a digital download that you print, organize and bind to fit your author business needs.)
The Planner will help you map out:
... and more!
This 200+ page printable planning system also has undated daily, weekly, and monthly planning pages, which means that you can start using it whenever you're ready. No wasted weeks or months – just steady progress toward your goals.
Purpose. Vision. Goals.
To achieve what you want, you need to critically examine what you perceive to be your limitations, embrace both your strengths AND your weaknesses, and then take action anyway, however imperfect.
In this section of the Platform + Productivity Planner, you'll work through:
Review. Prioritize. Strategize.
Now that you’ve defined what success looks like, it’s time to start the planning process. Remember, you’re looking for the fastest, simplest way you can reach your goal.
In this section of the Platform + Productivity Planner, you'll work through:
Schedule. Track. Evaluate.
By tracking your progress, you will be more aware of what's working and what's not – then you can do more of what's moving the needle for your career, and stop wasting your time doing things that aren't helping you achieve your goals.
In this section of the Platform + Productivity Planner, you'll have access to:
"Kimberley's Platform + Productivity Planner is packed full of everything a writer needs to lay out a course to success as an author entrepreneur. A “one-stop-shopping” resource that covers everything from designing your strategic plan to developing a strong online presence through blogging, social media channels, growing an email list, and so much more. The brainstorming sections are perfect for working through ideas and setting a clear course to a unique and effective author platform. In addition, the planner has bonus time-defined action planners, tools for analyzing and tracking book sales and marketing budget. In other words, this is a resource no author should be without. I can’t wait to start using mine!"
- C. S. Lakin, author of The Writer’s Toolbox Series
The Platform + Productivity Planner will help you:
You've got two choices here...
You could keep trying to figure this stuff out on your own (which often takes even the most hard-working and intelligent people years to do).
You could steal my strategies and get big results in a matter of weeks.
Think about where you want to be six months from now...or even ONE month from now.
Do you have a proven plan to get there?
You can use the Platform + Productivity Planner to help you achieve your writing and author business goals faster than you thought was possible.
What will you choose?
"I think having the monthly review section is very powerful. A lot of journals / planners / goal setting activities I come across don't have that section, which is one of the most important parts. My wife and I make yearly goals together and each anniversary we do a review. We both agree that the review is the most eye opening part."
