6 Ways to Build an Author Platform

Written By: Book Marketing International - Jun• 15•15

1. Define who you are – your platform is about you. Decide on how you want to promote your work.
2. Create valuable content – start sharing your knowledge with others. Post blogs about yourself, your book and your writing.
3. Connect with your readers – open accounts on social media and start interacting with your targeted audience.
4. Talk to your readers even before your book comes out – build those relationships.
5. Interact with other authors – whether you are writing fiction or non-fiction, there are always others writing in the same genre. They can be your cheerleaders and your support.
6. Participate in book events in your town – chose events that are similar to yours. You may meet your most faithful readers just by going to a bookstore.
