The following is a quick list of things authors can do to help them with promotion. In this day and age, authors must have an ebook and a blog in order to even consider social media. With a quick way to do videos, take pictures and audios (podcast), you can be on your way to social media stardom.

Tips i didn’t add to the resource sheet for download is :

Set up on Amazon.com an Author’s Page | click here to see how

Sell books directly on website | See how I’ve set up my bookstore

Synergize with other authors (collaborate)

Don’t forget special days (See Chase’s Calendar of Events)

Keep track of stats on your website

Save time and use sites like ping.fm, hootsuite or tweetdeck (multi-social network platforms)

Please attend upcoming offline events because networking online is just as important as networking online.
