How to Maximize Social Media

Hello everyone!

Since January 2017 will be the one year anniversary for my blog, writer’s website, and writer’s Facebook page, I have started reflecting on what I have learned over the past year and what I can do better next year.  I have also been asking myself whether or not I should expand to another form of online media.

Below are three articles I found enlightening.  I hope they help you as much as they did me.

“How Writers Should Be Using Social Media [Infographic]” by Wealthy Web Writer, contributed by Matt Banner:

“How Successful Authors Use Social Media to Sell More Books” by Chuck Sambuchino, excerpted from Guide to Literary Agents, from Writer’s Digest Books

I liked the advice from “10 Pro Tips for Writers Using Social Media” by Matt Petronzio, but I had to wade through pop-ups to read it.  I pasted the ten tips below.  If you’re willing to risk the pop-ups, here’s the link:

  1. “Sign Up for the Big Networks”
  2. “Interact and Engage — Enthusiastically”
  3. “Minimize Self-Promotion”
  4. “Consider Privacy and Comfort Levels”
  5. “Find a Happy Medium”
  6. “Make Valuable Connections”
  7. “Keep Up Appearances”
  8. “Aspiring Writers vs. Seasoned Writers”
  9. “Don’t Obsess Over Number of Followers”
  10. “Don’t Force It”

Happy writing!
