Using Social Media to Promote Your Book and Author Brand

If you are not very computer-savvy, social media marketing can seem daunting and often hard to comprehend. But it doesn’t have to be! Social media should be a fun, stress-free way to promote your book and author brand.

Using these three tips, you can begin your social media journey today!

1. Remember it takes time to grow your social media following. Do not get discouraged if you start with just a small following. It will take time for people to find you.

2. Don’t give up on posting on your social media sites. Even if you feel discouraged by a small following or think you are “doing it wrong,” do not give up. Keep posting about three times a week on platforms like Google+ and Facebook and about five times a day on Twitter. Consistency is a key element in establishing your virtual identity.

3. If you are running out of book-related content, post about your interests or hobbies.   Social media is not only about your book, it is about building your author brand. Your fans will want to learn about you as a person -- not just about your book. So feel free to share your favorite blog or pictures from your weekend getaway.

  1. I wrote my last book The Ball Shell Walls to promote the idea that we must not be anti- religious or God but should take a realistic look at how things naturally are while attempting to communicate with God without letting wishful thinking direct our beliefs. WE humans too are a miracle and most change is incumbent on us not God in order to create a better more human world. But I have a limited budget to promote this idea and to promote my book which is on amazon and e-book What are your suggestions for authors on a tight budget?? Regards J. Higgins
