Visibility is key
So, just the other day I read this brilliant book. Curious about the author, I started to do what most readers do. I Googled the crap out of him. His social media pages offered some book links and jokes, but very little in terms of who he was. What was his Amazon Author page, was equivalent to that of a news reader’s resume. Short and to the point. He did this and he did that, now he’s an Author (Yay).
So it brings me to this little nugget of wisdom to share…
If you are an author/ writer, then you are a BRAND. You are a business. You need to be visible not only on Social Media but also on the web. I’m astounded at how many authors don’t have websites. An Amazon page only tells you so much! A website gives you personality! You need to shine your own little light and sparkle for the world to know who you are and why they should read your books.
Get your readers excited to get to know the real you. Let them be able to see deeper into your heart and soul.
Many authors (myself included) use their blogs to showcase other authors and share some wise old words here and there, but that’s not enough. Have a intriguing website to show the world who you are, what you do and why you are so unique.
