The Author Platform Diagnostic Analysis digs into key elements of your author platform to identify where you are doing things right, as well as diagnose what may hold you back from achieving your vision. By the end of our time together, you will have a clear picture of where you stand and how you can improve your odds of accomplishing your goals.

Meet Your Book Diagnostician

My name is Carma Spence, and I am the author of five books, including the #1 bestseller Home Sweet Home Page, and the award-winning and bestselling Public Speaking Super Powers. I have contributed to several international bestselling books, am an award-winning speaker, and a three-times award-winning editor. In addition, I am a Certified StoryWay Guide and am certified in Author Marketing.

I have been obsessed with all aspects of being an author since I was a toddler, continuously self-educating throughout my life with books, classes, and in-the-trenches, hands-on experience. I’ve experimented with independent and hybrid publishing, as well as been published by a boutique publisher. My first book turned a profit within six months – with no audience and very little marketing. And it still sells well to this day.
In addition, I have more than 25 years of professional experience in marketing and public relations and hold a master’s degree in public relations.
I’ve studied the success – and lack thereof – of numerous authors, which is how I developed the range of Author Diagnostics available on this site. Therefore, I know a thing or two about how to lay the foundations for a successful author-entrepreneur (or as I call it, Authorneer) business.

What Is the Author Platform Diagnostic Analysis?

The Author Platform Diagnostic Analysis is a comprehensive and systematic examination of an author’s platform. It is based on the BLAP Framework, which identifies the four keys to a healthy author platform, setting the author up for long-term success.

Here are the four quadrants of the BLAP Framework which gives structure to the Author Platform Diagnostic Analysis and why each one of these is so vital for your success:

Quadrant One: Brand Clarity

In this quadrant, we look at your brand from various perspectives to identify its Clarity Factor. This is the foundation of an author platform. The clearer your brand, the easier it is to market and make decisions about your business.

Quadrant Two: Lead Systems

In this quadrant, we look at your lead generation system and how effectively it works, and how well-aligned it is with your brand. This quadrant is the engine that drives your author-based business and platform.

Quadrant Three: Asimov Quotient

In this quadrant, we look at how wide your reach is. We take a look at your online presence and its potential for influencing followers to engage with you and purchase your books. With an effective Asimov Quotient, you can grow your Author Platform more effectively.

Quadrant Four: Partnerships

No author is an island. In this quadrant, we look at the partnerships in your life and business to discover if you have the support you need to grow your author platform, sell more books and enhance your authority.

This All Sounds Great But…

Is this session for aspiring or established authors?

The best time to start working on your author platform is the moment you decide to write a book. The next best time is now.

Whether you are an aspiring or seasoned author, you can benefit from experiencing the Author Platform Diagnostic Analysys because it will show you where you will gain the best return on investment of your time in building your platform.

How is this different from a standard coaching session?

For the Author Platform Diagnostic Analysis, I use a special diagnostic software tool that was specifically designed for this type of session. Although I may provide some coaching as we move through the diagnostic analysis, this session is more about uncovering your current strengths and identifying areas for improvement based on a framework for author success that I have developed over the 20+ years I’ve been a writer and author.

How do I know this is suitable for me?

This session is for you if:

  • You are an author entrepreneur (authorneer) or are planning to make that leap
  • You have a book idea (no matter how vague at the moment)

This session is not for you if:

  • You have no intention of using a book to grow your business
  • You have no interest in selling multiple copies of your book
How much is the cost?

There are two versions of the Author Platform Diagnostic Analysis:

  1. A sample session that covers the first quadrant only.
  2. A full session that dives into the full four quadrants to analyze the strengths and areas in need of improvement of your author platform. The full session is valued at $1,196, but your price is only $499.
