I recently put up a blog post for all authors, speakers, trainers, and coaches – on LinkedIn CLICK HERE all about taking control of your fan following this year.
It was received well with a few shares and quite a few likes and reads. It might have been the fabulous picture I used in the header that captured the imagination, especially for any Star War fans out there – or it could have been the title of the blog post itself. ‘TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR BOOK SALES IN 2016 BY BECOMING A FAN YOURSELF!’
The main message was about ‘taking control’ this year and the fact that there are so many new habits you could create to grow your personal brand as an author and to sell more copies of your books.
I thought it would be good to list a few pointers of great habits you can create in 2016 to grow your list of followers:
1. Write a profile of your perfect reader/fan – then actively seek out what they might be reading, (online and offline publications) and where they are hanging out on social media (see pointers below).
2. Write great content and send it off the publications to see if they will use it. Everyone is looking for great, free content. This is a great way to get you in front of your target audience.
3. Hang out online where they hang out
