So… when I started writing my first book, I knew nothing about SEO, backlinks, website design or Twitter. I was barely a Facebook user. I can hear you laughing across cyberspace, but look at me now. An expert… not even close – a little smarter… you bet.
Here is my advice to you… and remember it’s free and you get what you pay for! Ha!
I’ve been told the one thing I need to market is me. You read that right… not the book, not the series, but me!
Start creating your presence on the web NOW. Buy yourself a domain name and several other similar ones if you can afford it. I use Go Daddy. They are user friendly. I use WordPress for my website and blog. Take your time and keep tweaking what you’re doing. Then start reaching out to social media darlings like Facebook and Twitter. After that you can expand to others like LinkedIn and MySpace. Wherever you go… remember you are an author! That is the way you should represent yourself.
Don’t be afraid to reach out to people. Being connected makes a big difference. Be sure to check out some awesome experts like… Kristen Lamb, Stacey Myers and Melissa Foster. These are three ladies I follow and read their tips and advice! I am still a work in progress. How about you?
Happy promotion of your creation!
