Promote your British-themed work
How I promote your UK-themed writing
What's that? I promote your work? Yes, that's right. I genuinely want to promote the great, the good, the wacky and the weird products, people, pets and peculiarities that originated in the United Kingdom.
Where your work can go to get hits & exposure
Here is the list of links - both off and on this site - where your articles will go. Rather than be confusing with a plethora of links, CLICK HERE to see the full list on my blog.
Reviews & recipes
Many of the articles I promote are either carefully-considered reviews or original, tried and tested recipes. People love to read genuine reviews of films, books, TV shows and products that are written by real people. And as for recipes, almost everyone loves to eat! Reviews and recipes on this site look extremely professional.
1. Maybe you've reviewed a book by a British author. This includes fiction and non fiction. If so, let me know and I'll add it to the page you see below. It is promoted via social media every time it's updated.
2. The page you see in the image below is specifically about Britain at war (any war) and can also include any relevant films, TV shows or books about the subject, but all types of article are welcome. A very popular subject right now is wartime cooking, so that's also cool.
3. Pinterest is a visual medium and I find that it's one of the best ways to promote webpages. It's important that articles have appealing photographs (especially if you've written a wonderful recipe) and images of products are popular too. See the image below.
4. Twitter, unlike Pinterest, is more limited as tweets are restricted to only 140 characters (less if you want the message to be shared) but luckily I have plenty of followers (real ones!) and Twitter invariably brings hits to British-related articles and recipes. See the image below.
5. Below you'll see a wonderful service that allows me to collate the best articles. I can then share them to other media. This page gets a lot of daily interaction from followers. It's a great way to get content to people who don't use other social media.
6. I regularly produce online newsletters featuring a variety of individual articles.You can see a recipe example below. This can be emailed, viewed online or, as you'll see in the images, shared thanks to the social sharing buttons that are embedded on the page.
7. Everyone is on Facebook - well, almost, it seems. A dedicated page on Facebook is there specifically to promote your reviews, recipes and stories. Individual pages, plus compilation articles, are posted there daily.
8. There seems to be some erroneous rumour amongst the non-gourmets of the world that British cooking leaves something to be desired. We know differently and I'm on a mission to change this mistake. Your recipes can be included on this page.
9. Carry On Britain is yet another site where individual articles are posted. As you can see, these can be product reviews, recipes or any stories with a British theme. This page too is regularly promoted via various social media.
10. An online daily paper is a wonderful thing. This is edited by hand (unlike many automated services) and sent out every morning via Twitter. If you use Twitter yourself and are tweeting a British-themed article use the hashtag #britflorida - or simply contact me.
11. Do you have favourite British television programmes? If they are available on DVD from Amazon, then review them and I'll make sure that I include them on this special page. It's great for readers to see genuine reviews from real people.
12. Every day, I post articles from this site to Google+ and I'm always happy to share great quality lenses from other writers here. Enlarge the image and you'll see that I also post pages from other services - note that the online newsletter has been added.
13. Of course, exactly what constitutes a British film is rather debatable these days. But if it's set in the UK or has mostly British actors then that's fine by me. Let me know about your movie reviews and I'll add them to this page.
14. This is my Tumblr page and every article I write gets uploaded there.
I can do this for your articles too. The link will take the viewer directly to your page.
15. Us and them? Nooooooooo! I don't want you to think that my role is to encourage British writers only.On this page,I'm collecting stories about British people abroad - from every point of view. If you're French, for example, and you have written about your experiences with British tourists, that's perfectly fine - and probably very funny too!
So, what this means is that YOUR article, review or recipe will go to EIGHT other websites and AT LEAST ONE compilation page. For example, if you have reviewed a book about Britain in WW2, your review will go to the BOOKS and WARTIME pages.
Let me know about your articles below.
16. This is my own blog which is updated every day - often more than once a day.
The hit rate is good, Goggle visits on a regular basis and ll the links are legitimate 'follow' links. Your work will get its own brief article and a link.
