Why is serving your audience so important? And how do you build community around your message?

If you could use some coaching on how to build community with your audience (and future readers), then you are in for a treat! Today Kathi is talking with author, (in)courage Community Manager, and future Red House Writers Collective coach, Becky Keife, who believes that everyone can learn to build, create, and serve others well, no matter their personality or natural gifting.

In this inspiring interview, you will learn the three pillars of building community:

  1. Be generous. Offer a safe place for people and serve with generosity.
  2. Be a connector. Know your audience, connect with them, and connect them to others.
  3. Be an encourager. A word from you can make a real difference in people’s lives.

Becky’s goal as a coach is to see writers who are able to eagerly and confidently serve their community with passion, purpose, and a plan. If you need that, come and join us in the Red House Writers Collective!

The Collective is a day-by-day roadmap that not only shows you exactly what to do to increase your writing but also build your writing business in a way that you’ve always known you could.
