Episode 16: Your Blog Is Just The Beginning, A Conversation With Content Creator, Charnaie Gordon

Welcome to the Children’s Book Marketing Podcast, where we dive into the world of marketing and promotion for children’s books. In Season 2, Episode 16, we’re focusing on content delivery and exploring the different platforms to share your stories and reach your target audience.

Charnaie Gordon is a mom, wife, and entrepreneur residing in Connecticut. With a background in IT and over 15 years of experience as a computer programmer, she made the leap to full-time content creator, author, speaker, and podcast host in the summer of 2020. Charnaie also runs a 501c3 nonprofit and is dedicated to sharing her expertise and inspiring others through her work.

Here’s what this episode covers: 

  • Why a blog may be your key to defining your impact as a children’s book author
  • Where you can begin with blogging and what’s appealing to blog readers
  • Why it’s worth your effort to birth a non-profit that’s a 501c3
  • How owning a blog allows your community of readers to see a different side of you
  • Where opportunities exist for establishing relationships with brand sponsors

Tune in to this episode to explore the power of blogging, branding, and leveraging online platforms in the world of children’s book marketing.
