You have heard that you need to use social networking as part of your author platform.
But you still have questions:
- How do I actually sell books using social networking?
- How do I use my time effectively and balance that time with writing and ‘real life'?
- What about privacy and security issues?
- How do I even use tools like Twitter and Facebook?
- How long does it take to make a difference?
- What is the most effective way to reach people who will buy my books, not just other writers?
- What about the reader social networks like Goodreads or Shelfari?
- How do you get followers/fans on these platforms?
- How do you keep these people engaged and interacting on your networks?
- Where are my target market online?
- How do I even start? This is all so overwhelming!
If this is you, don't worry!
This was me a few years ago as well but I have spent the last two and a half years getting to know social networking and using it to reach people online all over the world.
I currently have over 21,000 followers on Twitter @thecreativepenn and over 2100 Facebook fans for The Creative Penn. I've had over 55,000 views of my videos on YouTube. I have over 1300 friends on Goodreads and am linked to over 650 people on LinkedIn.
It's not all about the numbers but it is about connecting with people on these networks and then using your platform effectively by being useful and then to promote your books. I've learned a lot in the last few years and now I want to help save you time and effort in building your social networking platform.
Written by an author for other authors/writers
I am a passionate believer in the power of social networking and also count it as one of the most rewarding parts of my online life. Indeed, Twitter changed my life for the better in terms of the people I have met and the benefits to my writing and my business. I also think it played a big part in my launch of my thriller novel Pentecost which has remained an Amazon bestseller for over 6 months in the Action-Adventure & Religious Fiction categories.
In this course, you will find the answers to these questions and many more you don't even know how to ask yet.
