How to Create Awareness, Attract Fans, and Build a Following Online
By Bob Baker
As an author, you know you should be using social media more to spread the word about your book. But you’re probably holding back, for all sorts of reasons:
You’re afraid of what people might think
You’re worried it’ll seem too spammy
You think you don’t have time or the right equipment
You’re not sure what to post
You tried it once and didn’t get much of a response
You think you’ll annoy your friends and followers
If you can relate to any of these obstacles, you’re not alone. Yet, these blocks are keeping you from reaching more people and making more of an impact with your book.
In this mini workshop on March 13, 7pm at the Richmond Heights Community Center, you’ll learn at least a dozen simple strategies for sharing your message online in authentic ways that won’t feel spammy, using basic tools you already have. Your friends and followers will actually thank you for sharing your messages, because you’ll deliver value in a wide variety of inspiring and entertaining ways. Plus, you just might sell more books in the process!
