Ricardo Fayet is a cofounder of Reedsy. He started Reedsy with a few friends after business school.
A partner came up with the idea of creating a venue that offers expert consultants in self-publishing, such as editors, book cover designers, and marketing experts. Reedsy vets applicant experts before accepting them into their program. Experts submit applications and Reedsy employees review them. They accept 3% of the applicants they receive. Right now they have 800 vetted consultants that self-published authors can hire.
At its core, Reedsy is a marketplace for professionals: various forms of editing, cover designers, illustrators, interior designers, publicists, book marketers, and advertising specialists. They recently added 80 ghostwriters. Finally, they recently added website developers. Reedsy has a blog and every two weeks they offer webinars.
In this webinar, Ricardo discusses marketing but spends most of the time explaining how to use Facebook advertising.
