by | Goodreads Tips, Links Roundup, Social Networking For Writers | 0 comments

Social media is vital to spreading the word about your writing across the Web. Even if you’re a proud Luddite, you can’t deny that it makes sense: People aren’t going to magically happen upon your website, so you have to find them where they hang out and tell them about it.

Here are some articles with a bunch of helpful hints about social media for writers.

How Much Time Should You Spend On Social Media Every Day? via ThumbPrint Marketing Group – This is a question a lot of our clients ask. Not everyone has time to write Facebook posts and tweet every five minutes, but you should spend some time on your social media profiles each day so you don’t fall off your followers’ radars.

What Writers Need To Know About Goodreads via GalleyCat – Goodreads has traditionally been geared toward book lovers—that is, readers. But did you know there is a way to use it to promote your own writing? This post has a whole bunch of tips on how to do it (without crossing any lines).

11 Rules Of Twitter Etiquette You Need To Know via Jeff Bullas – We love this particular article because it follows the same philosophy we approach when maintaining our own social media campaigns: Social media is like dating! And just like when you’re on a date, you want to make the best impression possible. At least we hope so. Speaking of which…

The One Thing An Author Should Never Do On Social Media via Bestseller Labs – If there is one article you read from this Links Roundup, let it be this one. If you’re a regular Twitter user who follows fellow authors, you’ll recognize the mistake right away.

Working with the Web Design Relief team was a total pleasure. They made the process easy, in-depth, professional, and lyrical. I wanted a site that leaned toward the bohemian and yet held an edge of minimalist sophistication. I couldn’t be happier with my very inviting and creative site! We should win awards with this one!

I cannot possibly detail how professional and helpful Web Design Relief has been in helping me launch my collection of short stories—there are just too many things they have done! They’ve been there for me all along the way, guiding me in developing my book and into the 21st century of web design and social media platforms. It could have been a bewildering journey; Instead it was one that was organized and so pleasant. Truly, Web Design Relief has blown me away by what they have created. The first time I watched my book trailer (who knew there were book trailers?), I cried. That team perfectly imaged what my book is about. I want to thank the whole team for their skill and creativity. I appreciate it so much.

I’m pleased with the look of my website. The team at Web Design Relief listened to my suggestions and added a few of their own to make my website look exactly how I envisioned it. I would definitely recommend using Web Design Relief if you are looking to create a website.
