Over the years, I’ve met a lot of savvy marketers in this business. Right at the top of the list is Nancy Cohen. She’s also a terrific teacher with a knack for breaking down information into useful chunks. Last Saturday, I listened to her lecture at the Florida Mystery Writers Association meeting, and I wanted to share a few of her ideas about social marketing with you. Most of what you'll see below comes under the heading of, "Who knew?" and the answer of course is "Nancy did!"
- Put up an author page on Amazon for each foreign site (i.e. UK, Australia).
- Consider becoming an Amazon affiliate so that when people purchase your books from your website, you receive a referral fee.
- Create an Amazon book carousel from your Author Central account.
- Remember that people who visit your blog might not visit your website and vice versa.
- Give blog readers a way to contact you via email.
- Consider writing about writing! Information on writing has generated the most blog hits for Nancy.
- Add your book titles to your Facebook page where it directs you to "Add a project."
- Promote a single title on Facebook with this app from BookPulse. http://bookpulse.heroku.com/website/index.html
- Import your blog into your FB pages: http://www.networkedblogs.com/blog
- Post on Pinterest! It's the third most popular social network in the US after Facebook and Twitter.
