Day 16 of the NO EXCUSES 3-Week Author Blog Challenge: How do you approach book marketing on social media?

A mistake many authors make is to see social media as a sales tool. Social media is a tool for connecting to others with shared interests and values. What kinds of connections are you making? With whom are you connecting? How well do you know your audience so that you can find them on the various platforms?



Each day, we have a prompt upon which the authors may base their posts – or they may opt to write on the topics of their choice.

The Day 16 prompt is:

The first word in social media is SOCIAL. How are you using social media to promote your book, without coming across too salesy/pushy? What aspect of social media would you like to learn more about? What are your next steps?
