Finally a word of advice. There is no silver bullet. The secret to growing your audience and sales is to master the various steps and look for incremental gains. Don't be disheartened if your first efforts don't yield immediate results.

Look at the various aspects of your author platform and ensure that everything is as good as it can be. If you feel you're doing everything right with your ads, then turn your attention to your covers and blurb and so on.

In short, treat your writing as a business.

The Mastery facebook group is a great place to get moral support, as well as practical answers and I look forward to seeing you in there.

I can't wait to hear how you have progressed with the course, so please do let me know.

Best wishes,
