Being a self-published author is a great profession, but success is by no means easy to reach. You can spread the work about your book locally through book signings and speaking engagements, but you can also market and promote your book worldwide through social media on the internet.
AuthorHouse presents you with 3 tips for authors on how to become bloggers–to talk about not only your book, but yourself as well. First, in order to have a place to write, you’ll need to set up a free or paid profile account. Try to use a domain name that identifies your site with your subject (not always easy, since most of the more obvious domain names are already taken.) Check out hosting sites like WordPress or Blogger; they have templates that make set-up easy for first-time users, and can be customized for more advanced bloggers. Your blog should be well-maintained, with content updates daily (or at least a few times every week.) Your content should be informative, interesting, and a good “conversation starter” for other bloggers with similar interests. Remember, how well you interact with others is almost important as your book.
Marketing isn’t easy, but if you apply some basic strategies for promoting yourself and your book, you’ll have a distinct advantage over other authors.
