As I flicked through my TikTok For You, I came across a group that might be worth the follow. There’s a group, @womeninpublishingsummit, who offer writers tips on publishing and marketing their books. They quick answers help you navigate through social media and managing your accounts. They also have live Q&A.
Testing out the live feature of other groups, I would say that adding groups like this to your notifications is worth the many sounds you hear from your phone. Let’s face it, writing a book is tough enough on it’s own. Learning that you need to let other people know your book exists and market it, is a whole another challenge. Any advice that you can pick up from other groups help cut down on research time, and the increases your follow count in a shorter amount of time.
I still say that TikTok is the faster way to increase your fan base, gain recognition, and sell more of your books. I’ve seen many people who had 0 sales start to bring in steady sales because they shared their book cover and created a 7 second video. Other social media takes more time.
I’ve said this before but your agent and publisher will tell you that having a fan page, a website, or both is a must. Readers want to know who wrote the book they love. Other readers are looking for new writers to feed their hungry minds. And if you are a writer, like myself, sharing and following your fellow writers helps us all. We need to support one another.
This leads me to your prompt for today. Go to your social media and post today. Then, like, share and follow another writer.
My posts are Monday through Friday.
