Every writer wants to know how to build a stronger platform. We get constantly asked, How much is enough? What number should I shoot for?
When asked how much money is enough, John D. Rockefeller famously said, “Just a little bit more.” The same goes for platform numbers. More is always better. Even if you have a large platform, it could be a bit bigger, right? Most writers are in platform infancy. So what do you do when you’re pulling together your proposal and you want to talk about your platform that you wish was, “Just a little bit more?”
Here are three ways to talk about your platform when you don’t have one:
“Hope isn’t a strategy.”
Do you want further advice and help with creating your proposal? We’ll show you all our book proposal tips and tricks in The Essential Book Proposal, an 11-module video course developed specifically for authors just like you, on the cusp of getting published. We are going to show you what we want in a book proposal, as literary agents, and walk you through each element in a book proposal, including specific sections like Unique Selling Proposition, Comparable Titles, Short Summary Statement, and more!
