Marketing Tip: Beating a Following addiction!
This is something I do. I follow ALOT of blogs (yes it is an addiction but you all are so smart I love to read your thoughts!). Obviously, I do not get a chance to read everyone, everyday. :( I put aside one full day a month and go to every blog I follow/catch up.
An Award? Aw Shucks
Aw shucks :) Cathy Hall awarded me the Superior Scribbler.
1. pass the Award on to 5 most-deserving bloggy buds.
2. link to the author and name of the blog from whom he/she has received the Award.
3. display the Award and link to the Award explanation.
4. visit this post and add his or her name to the Mr. Linky List at the Scholastic-Scribe's blog. That way, we'll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who wins this prestigious Award!
5. post rules on his/her blog.
My 5 blogs are some new ones I found recently:
Little Ms J - because she is honest and cracks me up!
Serenity now - just found this one (somehow) and I like the voice
Road to publication - I roomed with Kimberly and want to give a shout out! (oh yeah and she is going to be huge when her book comes out in March. Melissa Marr just blurbed it and the cover is gorgeous!)
Reverie Book Review - new teen blog I found that reviews books
Lauren Barnholdt - a fellow Trident author who is also with my agent.
I was recently interviewed by WOW (women on writing) about branding and marketing. Check it out (special shout out to Cathy for thinking of me!)
Here are some great posts for the week!
Focus on blog content instead of traffic - we rarely hear the pros talk about the one thing that is essential in a great blog: content.
Public speaking for authors - This is a series that covers how to prepare, organize and speak. So, the day has arrived. It’s time to actually talk to an audience. What do you do?
Why a video sells books? Publicists and marketing professionals believe these videos are the best new way to create the kind of buzz that attracts readers and sales.
Finding your Facebook strategy - Create an amazing network of really cool people who are engaged, supportive, and excited about your work.
Lost in the madness of marketing? Top ways to market your book.
have a great weekend! :) Thanks for all the comments this week - I appreciate you all spending time reading AND commenting. Plus I love finding new blogs. :)
