1% Author Club
Learn alongside other authors and build and maintain an amazing author social media profile that gets you noticed by readers and publishing influencers. Small daily actions add up to huge results.
DOES ANY OF THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?
You know how important an online presence is for authors.
You aren’t sure how to build your social media profile (or if you want to).
You have social media profiles but are struggling to build an audience.
You’ve got imposter syndrome – everyone else is a better, more established.
You aren’t sure how to scale up consistent social media activity.
Your author social media activity stalls and goes in fits and starts.
You want to sell books but don’t want to ‘sell’ all the time online.
You want to be ‘known’ for something but aren’t sure how.
Writing your novel is a solitary pursuit but marketing it isn't
I don’t have time, I don’t know what to write on social media, everyone else online seems better. I don’t know how to start. I’ve run out of ideas, I don’t have enough followers.
We all have that negative voice in our head, telling us all the reasons we can’t do something. Perhaps authors more than most.
We’re here to tell you that you can.

What is 1% Author Club?
- It’s estimated only 1% of books published sell more than 150 copies
- Barely 10% of self-published authors sell more than 100 copies of their books (WordsRated, 2022)
- More than 60% of self-published authors want help with social media and internet marketing (The Author’s Guild, 2019).
What we're covering
We’ll teach you how to find your book marketing niche, how to speed up the process of writing and publishing social media posts to promote your books and crucially, how to expand your social network media network and influence.
Each session is supported with a range of supporting material in our learning hub.

What people say about our coaching courses
AuthorSpark founders Andrew Seel and Nigel Cooper have been digital pioneers since the birth of the web. They are both AI explorers, sharing their knowledge of this fast-moving field with you to help you keep up and thrive in this brave new AI world.
Nigel is also a bestselling author of 3 fiction novels and Andrew publishes his first non-fiction book, The 30 Day Social Club, later this year.
As digital marketing experts, Andrew and Nigel have trained and coached people for many years, from companies including Post Office, BT, HSBC, PA Consulting, Big Issue, Vest’d, Crowdfunder, River Island and more.
Here’s what some of them had to say about their experience:
“The 30 Day Social Club was incredible. It was more than just a social media course. It was like life coaching. I feel more confident at work, able to communicate better in meetings. I’ve grown my visibility.”
“I really enjoyed the 30 Day Social Club – social media was something I probably deemed ‘pointless’ 2 years ago – but incredibly important in my life now!”
“Since doing the course myself, I’ve put my team on the 30 day Social Club.”
“It makes social media something not to be scared of. That’s quite freeing for the individual to be able to talk about themselves whilst talking about their role as well.”
