Social media is one of the most cost-effective marketing tools available to self-published authors. For little to no cost, you can reach thousands of potential readers and connect with other professionals in the industry.
Don’t believe me:
- As of January 2017, there are 2.8 billion active users on social media
- There’s been a 22% increase in social media usage in the last year
- 76% of Americans who use the internet use social media
That’s a lot of people who would be interested in reading your book just waiting to connect with you!
I’ll admit though, social media can be overwhelming. There’s so many different accounts available. How do you start? Which social media sites are worth your time? How do you use these sites to build meaningful relationships with readers? Luckily, there’s help for those who need it.

Author Platform Set-up Through Social Media could help you if,
You’re confused about social media. How do you post updates and pictures or other relevant and compelling information on social media? Does the method vary between social media platforms? Where do these messages go, and who sees them? If just getting past the basics of social media fills you with anxiety, we can do all the legwork for you.
You’re not sure how to distinguish yourself as an author online. The updates you post as an author are bound to differ from the ones you post just for your friends and family. Your audience — and your reasons for communicating with them — are distinctly different. Your social media guru can help you establish an author presence online that helps you achieve specific marketing goals.
You want to build and maintain an ongoing relationship with your audience. Social media is the ideal way to connect with a target audience on an immediate and consistent basis. Did you just get a glowing book review? Are you working on a sequel? Is your new book ready for release? Want to get the word out about a sale or other special offers? Social media is the place to do that in a timely manner.
Time is not on your side. With your Social Media Author Platform, a few clicks can keep you connected with your audience.
