Social media can be an author’s best friend–if used smartly. ONCE I started utilizing it first, I was thrilled for connecting with old friends and meet plenty of new ones. Then it became overwhelming to try to maintain so many places and make updates on most of them. It got tiresome Then.
Let’s face it, there is no way to make it sound interesting if all you’re discussing is what you’d for breakfast. Here I am walking outside. I am purchasing espresso Here. Wow, I’m stuck on the turnpike. I want to post a picture of this tree. Actually, public media can be considered a very useful tool, fun and does not have to require constant care and nourishing. You can utilize it effectively without burning yourself out, throwing away time or spamming others. If you are an author who’s got books to promote, it’s really easier than you think. Twitter – best for quick connections. Keeps your communication simple and simple. But don’t spam your followers by asking them to buy your book.
Mix your mentions in with other tweets. RT (retweet) interesting tweets so that you’re not just focusing on you. It’s a simple way to connect and connect without the sensation of overwhelm that you may feel on other sites. Facebook – post your publication cover, articles, talk about other posts, quotations, pictures, etc. Share your interests while you promote your books. Develop a fan page to market yourself as an author.
But whatever you are doing, be yourself and don’t feel compelled to state yes to every friend request. LinkedIn – actually a good place for authors to communicate. Plenty of writing and publishing groups and (for the freelancers out there) opportunities to get job offers. In the event that you write business books, it’s ideal because your potential visitors will be on the website. Good spot to establish your “thought leader” needs.

Instagram – when I got my book proof, I had taken a picture and published it on my accounts as an announcement of my new reserve. At first I was skeptical about its usefulness, but it’s actually fun to take pictures and share with your followers. Pandora – Do your character types have a favorite tune?
Any music inspires you when you work? Share your playlist or your preferred tracks with your readers. Podcasts – take up a podcast or be considered a guest. Have a look at my radio show, Women Business owners Radio to get an idea of how it’s done. Pinterest – If you are a visible person you’ll easily get lost on this site. So, don’t utilize it if you cannot keep track of time!
Set up boards to post pics that describe your characters or settings from your reserve. Share pins that show locations you’ve went to, or perhaps are related to topics from your book. It’s another way to attain potential readers, connect with others, and share your interests. Social networking can enable you to connect with visitors throughout the world. But don’t rely on just one single way to reach out to your fans and promote your books.
