Today, I’m going to talk a little bit about how I started out in terms of online marketing.
Hi, everyone! Well, I had an idea what to do today. More random thoughts for the new year. And it just happened to coincide with something I saw on a blog that I like to read.
In Part Seven of my guide to being an indie author, I’d planned to talk about Amazon, but there’s loads of info out there about that.
What I’m doing today is telling you ways that you can be a truly indie author, which is to say non-Amazon exclusive. Because going wide is the only way to keep complete control over your own content.
What is the single most important thing you can do to establish your presence online? The answer is to create your own blog.
The reason I say that is that your blog is where you can best express who you are and what you do. No amount of Facebook likes, retweets, Twitter followers, or Instagram photos and likes thereon will do the job of a well-structured blog.
Frankly, creating a blog isn’t as complex as one might suppose. It doesn’t take a technical genius to do it. I’m living proof of that.
