While #SelPubCon is a digital writing conference, there's a plethora of benefits to attending in person conferences too. If you haven't attended one recently, it might be time. There are lots of conference options around the globe, some huge, others intimate. But one thing is certain, the networking you get from a conference is invaluable. ALLi is thrilled to work in association with two major trade shows each year and to be able to give our members discounted ticket rates.

Welcome to the next in the series of quick self-publishing tips from our upcoming speakers at the Alliance of Independent Authors Self-Publishing Advice Conference in association with London Book Fair. The conference count down continues, March 14-15th, 2020 is right around the corner, so what better way to continue the series than with a tip from bestselling author Adam Croft on thinking wide.
Adam Croft's Quick Tip
My biggest tip would be to always think beyond the US and UK, particularly if you're publishing wide. The non-US/UK markets are 95% of the world by population, and are largely untouched by the huge advertising spend that's flooded those two markets. Clicks are significantly cheaper, readers are not bombarded with ads and you can make a much bigger splash with a much smaller outlay.
