Self-Promotion: Is it a Good Idea
Self-promote with a great plan
Is self-promotion a good idea for you?
Is self-promotion a good idea for you?
Do you think self-promoting is a bad idea?
Can self-promotion do you more harm than good?
People tend to believe what you say about yourself. So, self-promoting is not a bad idea.
The key to understanding psychology, and to listen to what people have in mind is a good way to forward the idea in self-promotion.
I learned that self-promotion is the secret to success and a good idea about self-promotion; you don't have to fake it.
You need to get the word out and turn your book idea into a positive sale.
Be connected online and offline to see positive results in self-promotion.
You don't need to work with self-interested, self-absorbed, and self-serving individuals
An individual needs to know there is a right place and time for self-promotion,
It is an important skill to recognize when you need self-promotion.
Self-promote with the right people and in the right way.
First you must know yourself.
Know you values.
Be able to operate your ideas truthfully.
You can meet your expectations or raise your expectations.
Show quality posts
Make the experience a quality experience.
Do everything promptly.
Love what you do and do it greatly.
Be motivated by your plans.
Be good at your strengths and develop quality relationships.
Be satisfied with your team in self-promotion.
Be the leader and show your good qualities.
Be positive and trust what you do.
In self-promotion you must be willing and realistic.
Be open to failures and don't just focus on successes.
Show patience and determination.
Move on with your ideas with an open mind.
Never blame yourself and think of what you should have, and could have done to have changed the plans if not much comes of self-promotion.
Self-promoting on social sites are helpful if you approach well.
Keep up with marketing strategies. Word of mouth and referrals are of continuous help. You need a technique and to spread the word daily.
You won't always see the positive results right away.
Make marketing part of your daily routine as I do for my books via Twitter.
It becomes part of what you do each day, and people on the popular social sites will notice your information.
You immediately get tweeted and others share your work to other business sites. In the process more and more people get to know about your work.
Be active on social sites to share your new idea or book.
Some people pop up at these sites only when they have something important to share. It doesn't work that way.
Time is required to post your blogs and leave comments on other posts before you get your word out there. Be helpful not selfish.
Don't just appear and post your posts thinking everyone will return favor you too, have to be helpful and do your part.
You need to show your face daily.
Don't be the spammer.
The value you self-promote means more than self-promotion itself.
Share the example of how you gained your platform and success. Don't share your ego. What you have accomplished is valuable to the reader.
Be thoughtful about your audience. Think about what you want to share with your audience and of what is relevant to them.
What you share must have meaning to you and your audience.
Share something that has value to you and your audience to allow for both sides to be winners and can gain from that.
What is it for authors to self-promote?
Self-promotion for a business works when you put yourself out there and talk to people to let them know of your new company.
An author finds it difficult to get positive results from self-promoting their book.
Gone are the days when you need a steady platform and an audience to get your writing to the public.
It is scary when you look at it from that point of view.
When I started writing and sharing my work from 2008 I had seen great improvement.
Years have gone by since I started blogging and getting the word out to the public. Not much of that works out anymore.
Do you think Twitter sells your books?
If that were true then I would have sold millions by now.
My book would have reached top lists if Twitter sold it.
Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way.
Facebook is expensive to advertise my books.
Connect with people and chat about your new book.
Be curious and discover new ideas.
Keep writing and don't give up on that great idea or invention.
Shout out your book and be positive about your writing.
Self-promotion is tough and requires patience.
Authors do worry about getting people to notice their writing. The abundance of articles online allows for lost information.
The content you share daily can be useful but not everyone will get to it.
Its senseless sitting at home with a pile of books and no one reads it.
It is frustrating to work hard in getting ideas in manuscript form and to still have negative replies. The effort you put in is hardly what you get out.
Social media is not the perfect answer to selling your books. If you use social media to your advantage it helps to get the word spread further to other groups of interest. Sharing unique content is a way to get to your readers attention.
Social media is a way to get your word out about your new book if you do this with quality and with small pieces of information.
You don't get much feedback as you would expect from Twitter and Facebook.
The constant plea for exchange reviews and honest reviews on your book is not worth my time.
Readers need to get the information directly and not to authors. I don't believe in you writing reviews for my work and I writing reviews for yours. If you want to help out sure I am pleased to have you by my side. Be honest!
Why I write and my motivation for writing is the key to keep on writing and sharing my ideas here.
Promoting other people's work does help you further in self-promotion.
Are you using social media to sell your books?
If your content is outstanding and helps people with a value, then self-promotion is the idea for you.
When you choose to share your best content self-promotion won't feel a nightmare.
You need to be right by your audience.
Sharing your work on Twitter daily is not the only way to get good results. It is how you share your posts.
The quality of your post is of importance to your readers. How people receive your message on the other end of line is the answer to worthy self-promotion.
People sharing their posts on Twitter are not geniuses but know what to do in self-promotion.
They think of the process in sharing and not of the product itself.
Make time to share something small daily.
Avoid posting the same post every few minutes.
Engage with each other to make you heard. The art of self-promotion is to share quality posts and don't be a spammer.
The key to writing a book is to make the lasting sale.
Don't write for short term publishing.
