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:)*

Lynn Thompson’s home is in the Land of Enchantment, and, yes, the land is enchanting. The skies are blue, the stars are bright., and there are beautiful panoramic landscapes surrounding her hometown. Lynn wades through the craziness of life to follow her true passion, writing fiction. You can find her, or not, trekking through the mountains, searching for fairies and vortexes, keeping her eye out for anything paranormal, or sitting in the hot springs in her spare time. Lynn doesn’t have a specific genre she writes in. Characters have a way of leading her stories. She follows. Lynn is also a sponge when it comes to knowledge. She’s always on the move to continue her education in writing, marketing, social media, digital media, and hopes to find the extra time to add some criminal investigation classes to her repertoire. Lynn has three novels out: Blake, Sterling, and Tarnished Gold. Blake is the beginning of Montana’s story. Her need for seclusion, at least, for one winter. She does not get what she wants. There is someone or something in the mountains stalking her, people keep showing up on her doorstep, and she meets Max. Max knows what is hunting Montana, but won’t tell her. Montana’s lack of trust in Max drives her to fix her own problems. If she had known what she’d be confronting that night, she never would have sedated Max. Sterling is the second novel in the Montana Dayton series. Montana moves to Florida hoping to escape her old life, and regain her normal life back, but her past has come back to haunt her. Not only does she start losing time, she continues to wake up every morning wearing gorgeous jewels and is surrounded by precious gems. She never remembers where, or who she’s getting the glittery baubles from and is hell bent to get back her memories and return the jewels. Afraid she has been out robbing houses in the middle of the night, she is determined to figure out what is happening on her own. That is until the dreams and the strong pull to explore the gulf. When she finally realizes she needs help, she is powerless to get it. Tarnished Gold is Sam’s story and will be coming out around the new year. Sam first appeared in Sterling and demanded her own novel. Lynn has bowed to Sam’s wishes and is writing that story now. Lynn is also the proud owner of: Dark Fates. Eight short stories that are fun, but still on the dark side. Dark Fates-Madness. Four dark short stories. News Worthy. News Worthy stands alone with five short stories. Watching the news first thing in the morning may not be fun, but dissecting news clips and re-writing them into short stories that had a different ending was a blast! Dark Fates Collections is compiled of Dark Fates, Dark Fates-Madness, News Worthy, and features Karma Shay’s adventures.
