Part 2: Building your fan base:

I recently found a post on 89+ book marketing ideas and posted part 1 to this series. Book marketing can take a lot of time and effort and I continually want to make sure I’m on the right path. With life, learning, and writing, I’m trying to manage my time better so I love it when I find loads of information on one post instead of finding a bit here and a piece there.

The post on the blog I found has a ton of information so I’m separating the book marketing ideas into eight different posts. Hopefully, once a week. Since I am #Backinschool my time is limited. Feel free to visit Author Media to read the whole post and get more great information. I’ve been using these lists and checking off what I already have and what I need to do.

As with anything else, I may not use all of this information and you may not either. But it is nice to have on hand.

Build your fan base:

  1. Start a FB campaign to increase your fans
  2. Start a Google Campaign to increase traffic to your site
  3. Start a controversial web series
  4. Link up with other writers for your controversial web series
  5. Start weekly twitter chats with readers
  6. Keyword your blog posts
  7. Create a monthly newsletter
  8. Create an affiliate program
  9. Host-guest bloggers
  10. Become a guest blogger
  11. Create business cards with your web address on them and hand them out
  12. Put your photo on your business card for stronger branding
  13. Start commenting on other blogs (early and often)
  14. Host regular author hangouts on Google+
  15. Host regular author interviews on Google+
  16. Record your Google+ hangouts and put them on YouTube
  17. Get social media coaching

I have ten of these. How many do you have?

  1. Start a Google Campaign to increase traffic to your site (I’ve done this, but I’m not sure how much it helped)
  2. Keyword your blog posts
  3. Create a monthly newsletter
  4. Host-guest bloggers
  5. Become a guest blogger
  6. Create business cards with your web address on them and hand them out
  7. Create a monthly newsletter (I’ve played with this idea, but can’t seem to get a monthly newsletter out.)
  8. Put your photo on your business card for stronger branding
  9. Start commenting on other blogs (early and often)
  10. Get social media coaching (Right now I’m taking a Digital Marketing class from #shawacademy to get the right ins and outs on social media. Most of social media is common sense, but there is so much more information out there that I haven’t stopped to consider or thought of.)

I also highly suggest using trackback links to help get more traffic to your blog.

*Also a note from me personally. I prefer to set up other people’s blog links to hook up to a new tab so I don’t constantly have to hit the back button to get back to where I started:)*
