Back in March I joined a group of ladies in their blogging venture at Sweethearts of the West and over the course of the first month, learned that many of them weren’t taking advantage of social media outlets like they should be. The reason they weren’t was because…they didn’t know how.
I’m the type of person who won’t stop digging away at something until I’ve mastered it to the best of my ability and when I see a new way to reach readers, I do my homework and fiddle until I’ve managed to make use of it. Not everyone is as hard-headed as me and most give up without much effort or can’t figure out where to start to begin with, so I promised the other Sweethearts that I’d do a series of social media (and other author friendly) posts to help them out and give them a guide of How To’s when tackling these outlets.
I have ten post (so far) that will introduce authors to, and help you set up, manage and maintain a number of sites and applications. I’ll be posting these, one every week, starting next Wednesday. I am by no means an expert and I make no claim to be so these will just be my experience with these programs.
The topics I’ll be talking about in the coming weeks are Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Rafflecopter, Mailchimp, Hootsuite, Scrivener, Instagram and creating your own book production schedules.
