Every day when I check my current social feeds, I notice an author friend has joined the next new thing. I couldn’t tell you how often a brand new social platform with a funny name picks up interest, but I don’t doubt that with each launch there’s an author trying to figure out how to use it for book promotion. As an author, I like to think outside the box where selling books is concerned, though I recognize the importance of reading terms of service policies to make sure I don’t step on any toes. Nonetheless, if you’re still trying to wrap your head around Twitter and become overwhelmed by new gadgets and sites, don’t worry. They’re here to help with word of mouth, and some are quite simple to use.
If no one is commenting, then it is fairly obvious it is because the content being posted on the page is boring. Usually when I take a look through their wall feed, the content is just a lot of posts saying something like….
If you don’t have any unique content to share, set up a time each day to simply focus on taking pictures to share. It can be shots of your products, your office, employees, etc. If it relates to your brand and business, take an interesting shot of it and edit it to your liking and share.
It is easy to lose track of time when you log in to your social media accounts. This is especially true with följare, where you can easily lose an hour just scanning through the wide variety of images in your stream.
Show your band’s personality. Perhaps the most important point to keep in mind. This will effectively communicate how your band is different. Think about your band’s range, and then try to communicate that using imagery. This will help in getting your message across more effectively, and will also help in letting the recipient know what kind of music you play.
Embrace the time concept. It takes time for people to find you. It takes time for you to find them. I remember when I first started exploring the online maze. I almost gave up before I started. I couldn’t connect with people are even know who to follow, listen to or respond to. But the more I interacted with people online, listening to what they were saying and adding in value-filled content, the easier it was to find who I had been looking for. In addition, I became more fluent in social media language.
Bolstering a strong base of fans is paramount in successfully launching your band. It also proves to be most effective when trying to distribute future albums. The more support of fans, the more attention you will get, thereby getting the attention of music labels. Simply remember that keeping your personality on the forefront, and in unison will prove the most beneficial. Having a creative and unique voice is always something that is wanted in the today’s field.
