Share and share alike.

Here’s a link to a great infographic to help you determine the best sizes for graphics to create shareable posts on social media. Compelling photos, videos, stories, or links can spread across social media rapidly, increasing your exposure. One idea is to take quotes from your book and create graphic images to post. There are several sites online that offer a free way to combine cool images with your own quotes, but you can also use any photo editing application you have on your computer or tablet.

A social experiment – social media tips from authors

From TheWriteLife.com, here’s a nice article that includes author’s tips on using social media to sell more books. Here were some of my takeaways:

  • Do the stuff you like, don’t do the rest. If you hate LinkedIn but love Twitter, do that. If you can’t stand Facebook but love to blog, do that. If you love it you’ll keep it up and build your platform from there.
  • You don’t have to do them all. If you jump into 20 forms of social media, you run the risk of burning out and giving up.
  • Be yourself. ‘Nuf said.
