We have a team of support staff located in different timezones all around the world so you shouldn’t have to wait too long for a response.

I promise we will be working hard to answer each one as quickly as possible.

An in depth and instructional course on using Amazon's paid ads. The service has recently been made available to authors who are 'wide' as well as exclusive with Amazon and it's an exciting innovation. This session is currently in production but will be made available to students very soon.
Twitter for Authors
Although the Twitter Ads platform is no longer viable for authors (in our opinion), the social media platform is still a fantastic tool for finding new readers. Guest author Ian Sutherland has written a book on the subject of how to use Twitter organically for authors and we're delighted that he's produced a bonus course that will get you started on your Twitter marketing journey.
Write Simpler, Better Ads
Bryan Cohen has produced a detailed guide to copy writing for book ads, just for us. This important bonus course can give you an edge in making your campaigns as successful as possible.
Ads Design for Authors
Stuart Bache, designer of my book covers and ads as well as the covers of such greats as John Le Carré, has put together an exclusive session on how to use web tools to design high converting images for your Facebook ads.

WORDPRESS SITE AND MAILCHIMP INTEGRATION
A fully functioning Wordpress site with Mailchimp integration from a tried and trusted team that echoes the style of my very own author site (discount worth $130 - $250).
We’re really pleased to be able to point our students in the direction of a Wordpress designer who can create a site based closely on my own Joomla design. Each template is designed to work with a Mailchimp account and all will be offered up with an aggressive discount. I just need to make it clear that the team behind this offering is not affiliated to the SPF in any way, and neither are we receiving anything in return for making this offer available. I do know that the service has been used and approved by scores of existing SPF students. My involvement was to persuade them to reduce the price for each purchasing option which has resulted in the following: Silver $129 (normally $259), Gold $249 (normally $499) and Platinum $399 (normally $799).

DONE-FOR-YOU AUTHOR SITE BY KRAIG MATHIAS
Kraig designs and builds WordPress websites for authors and entrepreneurs. He works with some of the most successful online entrepreneurs out there today - like Nick Stephenson, (Your First 10K Readers), and David Siteman Garland, (Create Awesome Online Courses).
Fortunately, we were able to partner up with him for this launch to set aside some of his extremely limited openings for those Advertising for Authors students looking to put their best foot forward online with a unique, one-of-a-kind website.
Working with Kraig is an opportunity to work one-on-one with a top-notch designer and developer to create that perfect and unique site just for you.
Here are some examples of Kraig's work:
The standard cost for Kraig's Done-for-You Author Website is $2,497. We're thrilled to be able to offer it up to students with a hefty 20% discount - $1,997.
As with the other bonuses on this page, we're not receiving anything for making this offer available to you. We're very excited, however, to be able to provide students with the opportunity of working with a professional like Kraig.
