It’s all about CONTENT MARKETING…
Authors can do either of the following:
- Spend ten thousands, even hundred thousands of dollars to buy their way into bestseller lists
- Create their platform – do your own marketing, write articles or short stories – or hire publicists
REMEMBER: Even Celebrity Authors are required to have a platform and a web presence!
Social Media has become part of our culture, and helps to connect with your readers. However when scrawling through tweets and other posts on Social Media sites one gets the impression that 90% of all posts by writers are “buy my book, buy my book, buy my book…”. Instead of posting links to useful or entertaining articles, reader only land at sales pages. Few links are pointing to interesting, entertaining or helpful content – despite the fact that there are so many talented writers out there, who could write great articles or show snippets of their books online. This would make their Social Media presence more valuable and would connect readers with their writing craft.
If you would like to get more support in all things publishing, have your book intensively promoted and learn how to navigate social media sites – or to learn how you can make yourself a name as an author through content writing: We offer all this and more for only $179 for three months – or less than $2 per day!

Reblogged this on A.R. Rivera Books and commented:
As a soon-to-be published Indie author, I have been researching marketing and platform building for several months now. I found this particular article very helpful and thought maybe you would, too!

I like the graphics a lot. I am more a visual type kind of person, so any graphic with a few explaining words is a good advertising for me. But it has to make sense and be useful. Like this one. 😉
