It’s Blog day and we are continuing our little marketing series....which has jumped around a bit with the extra posts on YouTube promotion that authors are doing for their books and online workshops...
Let’s do a little recap.
101a looked at SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION, KEYWORDS AND PRESS RELEASES
101b we learned to be WEB FRIENDLY
101c was where we looked at WHO IS YOUR WEB SITE AUDIENCE
Then we diverted to looking at AUTHOR PROMOTION online, and what one publisher is doing to promote a book. BLOGGING and YouTube videos then got a look in.
Today I’m going to join these all up with links to two places.
The first, 5 Publicity Tips for Authors. READ ABOUT IT HERE
MARKETING AND PROMOTION is all about NETWORKING.
You the author need to become part of the online community.
You need to talk about your work on message boards, blog comments, etc
You need to celebrate your success by posting press releases of your work.
You need to have a distinct voice on line...blog... web... social network.... which brings me to my next link...All you ever wanted to know about writer’s websites...
After you have read these and thought about the implications I will be interested to learn your thoughts about the helpfulness of what I have been blogging about.
Remember, I am co convening the National Children’s Writer’s and Illustrators conference next year in September... It has already been suggested that we have some sort of online teaching component to the conference. What do you think?
