Are you trying to get started using social media? Finding it confusing and crazy-making?
Do you find yourself asking questions like these?
- What’s it all about?
- Do I have to be visible on all these sites?
- Isn’t this going to take a whole lot of time?
- Am I going to get any real results from all this?
If you do, you’re not alone. If you talk to other authors you’ll find that lots of us are trying to work out the best way to deal with social media “craziness.”
Not only that, the whole world of social media just keeps changing.
- Facebook changes their interface about every 10 minutes
- New sites spring up almost overnight, like Pinterest
- Everybody keeps telling you you have to market your books yourself
What’s a busy author to do? How can you make sense of it all?
Don’t despair! I’ve got a simple, strategic plan for using social media that any author can use, no matter what she writes about.
I call it the Hub and Outpost Method for Social Media Marketing.
(Okay, I didn’t make up that name, but I love the plan!)
It’s a simple, easy-to-understand system that will:
- show you how to pick the right social media sites
- make sure that you’re not just wasting your time
- help you grow your following in a logical way
- keep you sane with a common-sense approach to social media book marketing
Dozens of enthusiastic authors have attended this webinar and learned this system that will help you make the most of all the hard work you put into your books.
And they loved it. I was thrilled to get feedback like this:
Thanks @jfbookman and @ibpa for a great webinar today – such valuable info. We really appreciate it! —ArielandShya
… and this:
@jfbookman @ibpa Your webinar was filled with great information and tactics I can use immediately. Thanks so much. —Monica Barrois
… and even this:
“This was one of the best webinars yet! (Joel) was so encouraging and confident… it just made me feel good to listen to him.”—Pat Garrison
Now this training is available to you, so you can use this method to make sense of your own social media efforts.
This webinar has great examples and tips on how to put this system to work for you, all delivered in high-quality audio and video.
What you’ll learn:
Here are just a few of the things you’ll learn in this lively 47-minute presentation:
- How to pick the sites you should be active on
- The importance of “congruence” in your posts
- The 5 reasons you should use a blog as your online “hub”
- How to create pathways that lead people back to your hub
- The awesome power of syndication to spread your message
- 5 ideas for events that will draw readers back to your hub
- The one thing you MUST do at every single outpost for this system to work
- How to create a non-stop, content-driven traffic and engagement machine
- Using the community you gather for your very own “market research”
Now, this isn’t a “nuts-and-bolts” course. I’m not going to show you which buttons to press or how to find the name of your feed. What you will get is:
A framework that will make your work make sense.
A strategy that anyone can start to use today.
A way to make sure you don’t “burn out” doing tweets or status updates.
The confidence to know that you’re building an online asset that will pay you dividends over time.
And the exact same strategies that have helped me build a following of tens of thousands of people interested in my books, training products and other services.
Now maybe you’ve taken social media marketing courses aimed at authors, and many of them are great. A Facebook course, for instance, can be very helpful in showing you how to deal with the ins and outs of that huge community.
What this webinar will teach you is how to put that in the context of an overall plan, a strategy that can incorporate any new sites, any changes to existing sites, and your growing community.
When you do it right, social media marketing can result in that non-stop, content-driven traffic and engagement machine, with lots of it done automatically.
It will make the most of your content to create communities of interest and drive streams of traffic to your blog or website.
Yeah, it really works!
Follow this plan and end up in the “circle of awesome” where your content continues to drive people to your site, and you learn to use social media sites for engagement, market research, and more.
