SPI 198: Building a Book Launch “Street Team” (Plus Pre-Order)

SPI 198

I’d like you to meet someone who’s been invaluable in making my next book a reality. He’s Daniel Decker, the man behind the Will It Fly? launch team.

If you’re new to the incredible power of launch teams, this episode is for you. Daniel is a master at building community. He’s managed launch teams for authors like Michael Hyatt and Lewis Howes and taken the success of their books to new heights.

No matter what you’re launching, everyone can benefit from the powerful word-of-mouth generated by a community that’s as excited about your project as you are. Daniel’s here to walk you through how to build a team like this, how to keep them engaged, and what you should be doing in the weeks leading up to your big launch. Thanks to Daniel’s expertise, I’m already seeing some amazing things come out of my launch team. I knew I wanted you all to benefit from that expertise, too.

  • How a launch team can help your next book or project get the attention it deserves.
