Are You Confused About Social Media?
People who want to buy your book are active on social media
You’re not alone. Many authors are afraid of taking the plunge into social media. It’s ok - you can get help setting up your social media profiles.
Establishing YOU Online
You spent years writing a book that can help you spread a message far and wide. You just need people to read it. You’ve already talked to friends and family, and they’ve bought the book, but you want to reach more of your target audience. That means you have to establish a name for yourself online. What’s the easiest way to do this? Get involved in social media. You can spread the word about your book to a much wider audience by taking advantage of many of the communication tools that are already at your disposal (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.).
You Need Guidance
You’re no social media “guru”, and no one expects you to be. You can benefit from someone else’s years of experience setting up and managing social media profiles on all of the major sites.
You Need to Connect
Sales don’t happen without connections. Does a tree in an empty forest make a sound? Possibly, but no one will hear it. The same goes for the message you intend to spread with your book. If you haven’t connected to an engaged audience, no one will benefit from it. There is potentially a large and wide audience for your book, but avoiding social media has you locked out of the market. Why? Because social media is the ultimate communication and connection tool for people from all walks of life.

"Every building needs a foundation. Likewise, every author needs a platform, which is like the building's foundation. Your platform gives you a firm, solid foundation to speak from, as well as gives your advertising message continuity, throughout your marketing campaign. I am thankful for my author platform."

"I signed up for Author Platform Set-up Through Social Media because email is about the extent of my online social experience. Outskirts sent me an impressive list of my new marketing outlets. At that point I saw a great deal of potential but still didn't know how to make it work, so I signed up for five hours of Personal Marketing Assistance. I am looking forward to touting my raw material on sites across the web."
