Hey, everyone. I’ve had a number of people ask me specific questions about how to do this or that lately. More specifically, “what can they do to network more effectively and grow their platforms?” And I’ve done my best to share some of my thoughts with quite a number of you. But the bottom line is this…
You’re not me, and I’m not you.
Each individual has to develop their own path. What works for Joe, may not work for Schmoe. Perhaps a mix of practices and habits from a handful of colleagues could work best for you. From my perspective, it would be great to hear what you all have to say about your own journeys. Maybe that little tip you share with someone will be the key to their success. Stranger things have been known to happen. Blogs are great, but it’s time to try something different.
Are you with me so far?
Here’s what I’m going to do. Every so often while on Twitter, perhaps twice a week, I’m going to throw out a question that I’d love you to respond to. I tried this earlier in the week, asking for your thoughts on naming ebooks by the same name as other author’s works; I was pleased with the number, and quality, of responses.
So…I’m doing it again tonite, around 8pm EDT. I’ll do my best to respond to everyone, if able. Think of this as an impromptu town hall meeting about indie stuff. I like the short-notice aspect about this, as it keeps things loose, and laid-back.
The way I see it, if you’re meant to be there, chances are we’re about to chat.
Cheers everyone, Al
PS: I hope you’ll scroll down and check out my great friend, AJ Powers’s interview before you bail outta here. We both thank you.
What was the question? I’m still singing, “For those about to rock, We salute you.” If that song is stuck in my head the rest of the night, I’ll be sure to complain to you about it.
Have you heard the expression “different strokes for different folks”? Of course you have. Well the same applies to marketing yourself. For me, I’ve found being chatty on twitter is what works. But everyone is different. Oh and how your market also depends on what genre you write in.
Hey, Al. I want in on this. Will there be a hashtag for your questions? I might be a bit late but I’ll be there. My tweets have a long way to travel, ha!
