Invisible Stories: Write to be Seen

Jun 15, 2021

Today’s Invisible Stories guest is AJ Joiner, a multi-hyphenate entrepreneur, marketing strategist, coach, radio host, and author of  several marketing books, including Stop Bullsh!#%ng & Write Your Book! AJ consults with a wide variety of clients about marketing themselves and how to get their information out there through social media and the written word. He helps authors strategize how to reach their target audience and pull out threads from their writing that are universally relatable to their readers. 


In this podcast, AJ offers amazing insight into how he strategizes with his authors, and what it takes to market yourself to your maximum potential. AJ shares his process for guiding authors through their writing process: 

  • He has them focus on what are the universal lessons that the author learned through their experiences of trauma, and how they can use those lessons as talking points and a way to reframe interviews or discussions about their work. 
  • How he impresses upon people the idea that they shouldn’t be writing for the money, but rather to have their legacy left behind them and to encourage others that they, too, have a story worth telling. 
  • Some tips and things to look out for in order to avoid predatory publishers looking to take advantage of authors.
