I think that every now and then it’s important to discuss marketing. Right now, my marketing efforts are pretty minimal and consist mainly of letting readers get to know me a bit. Because I don’t really have much to offer by way of an actual product, I offer my ideas, knowledge and results from experiments that may or may not produce better fiction and poetry.
But what’s the best way to get my ideas out there? I’ll share with you what I’m currently doing, and perhaps it’ll benefit you too–of course, feel free to share tips and tricks you’ve picked up along the way.
At present, I’m enjoying the Publicize feature in wordpress. I schedule or post my blog entry and it automatically posts to my Twitter account (@mmcnelliswrites). My Twitter account automatically posts to my Facebook. Automation really has come a long way since I first used wordpress four or five years ago.
I’ve also come to adore Buffer App, which lets me schedule tweets ahead of schedule in a similar way I schedule some posts on wordpress ahead of schedule. No longer will I have to worry that a busy schedule keeps me out of the loop of sharing information. And let’s not forget the glory and addiction of stats, offered by both Buffer App & WordPress.
What do you do to get your ideas out there?
