If after watching you have questions, ask!!! We love helping authors work around the gatekeepers Amazon and Ingram that continue to squeeze authors.
How do we turn our preaching into caring content? It starts with:
Empathetic Storytelling: Weave relatable anecdotes that showcase your understanding of your audience’s experiences.
Understanding Pain Points: Identify the challenges your readers face and address them with genuine concern.
Practical Solutions: Offer actionable advice that stems from a sincere desire to help your readers overcome their issues.
Authenticity Matters: Share personal stories of growth and learning to connect with your audience on a human level.
Active Listening: Engage with your audience’s feedback and respond with empathy and insights.
Subtle Advice Integration: Integrate advice into relatable scenarios rather than stating opinions outright.
Walk in Their Shoes: Write from the reader’s perspective, acknowledging their emotions and concerns.
Open Dialogue: Encourage discussions that allow readers to share their experiences and insights.
Tailored Solutions: Offer customized solutions that cater to your diverse readers’ needs and preferences.
Positive Impact: Keep the focus on helping and inspiring your readers rather than instructing or preaching.
Community Building: Foster a sense of community where readers feel cared for and supported.
Sincere Tone: Convey your message with a genuine and caring tone, showing that you truly value your readers’ well-being.
