    How do you promote yourself as a writer on hubpages and elsewhere?

    I am having trouble promoting myself as a writer; for instance, I use a pseudonym on hubpages and I am not active on Facebook.  I suppose that I am a bit shy, and I also like the freedom to express myself anonymously.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks

    You should promote your hubs a few times a day via traffic and share it via here, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google + and your own blog/website/domian, if you have one.  You should be active. You can follow hubbers, comment on other hubs, and answer questions on Q&A and forum here to get some fellow hubs to head your way. It takes time and patience to get noticed here. Don't be shy. We're all friendly.

    I've found that Twitter is a place where you can be whoever you want to be, and very effectively promote your works. The trick to Twitter is to always include an image with each post. If your hub URLs are key worded for SEO (search engine optimization), I would suggest you include the entire link to your articles (not a bit link, or shortened link.) Use hashtags to your advantage.

    Tsu is another place where you can be whoever you want, and it's Excellent for gaining followers very quickly. Another bonus is that they pay you for posting original content. Include an original image in each post, include the hashtag #originalcontent, of course include the link to your hub, and interact a little and you'll be amazed at how quickly it catches fire. It's invite only, so if you're not on there already you can sign up through me: www.tsu.co/KateParkerRDH

    Google+ is excellent for getting rated well on Google, and Pinterest is great, especially if you have a lot of original pictures in your hubs.

    Hope that helps! smile
