What Is An Author Platform and Why Do I Need One?
If you’re a writer making the leap to becoming a published author or maybe a self-published author wanting to achieve greater success but don’t know what an author platform is and isn’t that exciting?
Having a strong author platform means you have both visibility and connection with your target audience. Many people mistakenly believe it refers to social media presence, but social media is just one of dozens of essential elements in an author platform. Cruise on over to our Author Platform page and you will see what my criteria are for the best author platforms. In the meantime, here is a short list of elements that an author platform includes.
- Significant website traffic
- A large blog following
- A sizeable social media following
- Wide-ranging exposure across many related websites
- Regular event appearances and speaking engagements
- Connections with acclaimed authors
- Endorsements from A-list writers
- Interviews with major media
The author platform has taken on an astoundingly important role when it comes to whether or not a writer will get a traditional publishing contract. For self-published authors who are serious about their writing careers and becoming successful – the author platform is an amazing tool.
While industry folks may argue that platform has always mattered, today it’s more important than ever before. A huge shift has transpired in the past decade when it comes to what agents and editors weigh when deciding what projects to represent or publish — and in some cases an author’s star quality matters more than their actual book.

It started with a dream that became a clear vision of “what” to deliver (inspirational teacher, dynamic speaker, best selling author) but no clear path and understanding as to “how.” Enter the Guru …
With Jackie’s passion and my design & marketing skills we began the adventure, created a website, marketing materials, and social media presence; followed by two publishing contracts and a full time speaking career.
Jackie has signed on with Guru Publishing to produce and distribute the audiobook for her forthcoming release of “Calming the Chaos.”
Once in a while, a book comes out that changes the way that we see ourselves and the world around us, that creates a significant impact, this book, written by Quantum Healer and Intuitive Abigail Aguilera, is definitely one of them. The wonderful and inspiring story about what it takes to overcome the pain that sometimes comes with being human, forgetting what you have been taught and remembering who you really are.
Michelle had been working on documenting her battle with bacterial meningitis soon after she left the hospital; each word physically challenging to write as the meningitis had affected much of her motor system resulting in partial paralysis and, on an emotional level, re-living such an experience is not always comforting.
Writing Get Back Up was another act of bravery like the actions and focus it took for her to keep her focus and battle through recovery.
