Authors have a lot to do.
- Write books.
- Edit said books.
- Proofread said books.
- Get said books off to alpha and beta readers.
- Seek publishing or set up self publishing...of yeah those books.
- And let us not forget...MARKET those books...
- and connect with readers...
- and do live in person &/or virtual events.
WHEW! That's an exhausting list!
Don't you love to save time and energy?
Well DUH! Of COURSE you do! Who doesn't. I mean...nobody is going to raise their hand and proclaim proudly, "I have NOTHING to do, so please, pile on more STUFF TO DO!"
Social media alone could devour 24/7 if you let it, and that will only account for a small percentage of your book sales anyway.
People tell me, "Ronda, you're EVERYWHERE? Do you sleep?"
Yes, I sleep. I'm everywhere because of some wonderful tricks and hacks As a matter of fact, I'm working on a book called 101 Tricks and Hacks for Writers right now. One of my favorite Cool Tools is in that book.
I know you're asking:
"How can I save time and energy on social media, Ronda?"
You probably feel like an exhausted hamster in a wheel, scurrying around to do this and that in a constant flurry of activity.
Slow down. Take a breath. I've got you. Check this out.
The 1-Post Problem
You write a blog post, upload a video, or whatever, and you share it once all over. Then what? Who has time to go back around every week or so and share one of your older posts?
That's the 1 post problem. It's hard to keep sharing your awesome past content.
