    Reading this book feels like talking to a good friend. Anne-Laure does not overcomplicate things. She knows exactly why you’re procrastinating on marketing your product, and helps you with kind advice and guidance. I read Make and Shine in one go, without putting it down. I'm sure you will, too

Hi everyone! 😻 If you are a maker and find it hard to attract new users beyond launch day, this is for you. ✨ Before starting building my own products, I studied marketing, and worked at Google as a marketing manager, so I know a thing or two about marketing. I also know that lots of traditional methods simply don't work for indie makers. 🙅 In this book, I'm ditching anything that costs $ and I'm focusing on affordable, simple, proven methods that will help you: • Define your personal brand • Grow your audience in an authentic & sustainable way • Get featured in the press • Speak at events in front of relevant people • Build your own community It's available on Kindle via Amazon, or you can download the extended version in PDF, EPUB, MOBI with extra content on Gumroad. You can use the code FORTHEKITTIES for a sweet, sweet discount on the extended version! 🤑 Massive thanks to the Women Make community, Product Hunt Makers, the Solo Entrepreneurs Telegram group, @tcodinat @marie_dm_ @bentossell @faizsyedhussain and many more people for all their help! 🙏

"To @rrhoover "... 🧐 Congrats on launching the book Anne! ❤️ So awesome that you're sharing your own knowledge and experience to makers, I think marketing is something hard to deal with specially for bootstrappers, who are usually more into the development & shipping aspect of building products, so I'm sure your book will make this task easier & allow more makers to be known & successful 😄
