My, how the weeks fly by. I find myself wondering where the time goes, not only in my day to day stuff, but also with my social media marketing stuff. I tend to lose track especially if I get caught up on Facebook, or any other social site.
Lately I've been putting more time in my latest WIP (work in progress). I've got so much work to do that using up my time scrolling through Facebook is losing valuable minutes. So I've chosen to back off the endless hours of dog videos and political talking points. It's amazing how much more I can accomplish.
Choosing to limit your time on your social sites is the best way to organize, not only your work, but your life. I think one of the best things I ever purchased is my smart phone. I can jump on any site and spend a couple of minutes, then get on with other things. I'm still engaged, but on a much smaller time table.
I've been working on building ads for Fable and my website. I'm almost ready to send out my first one. I've also been trying to update my website with pictures and contact letters for my newsletter. In fact, the most valuable way to reach your readers is through emails and I've refocused on doing just that.
Writing on this blog is another social marketing tool. It's nice to be able to reach people with a click of a button on my Fanpage.
But the most important way to connect: getting my series written and publishing it so my readers can enjoy my hard work. I mean, isn't that what it's all about? My writing?!
I am going to be offering, not only a free book - Fable - but if you leave me a review on Amazon you can read Fated for free. Refocusing on what's is vital, which is reviews, takes me to a whole other level. I want to get my books out there for readers to enjoy and hopefully can't wait for the next one. It's truly what I strive for.
And I want to build my fanbase so reorganizing how I market is key to reaching my goals.
What do you do to reach your fans? Do you find yourself spending too much time on Facebook? Leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts or secrets. I would love to discuss it with you.
Taking time out to do for you and to continue doing what you do best is what's important. Think about this before you spend all your time on social media. Everything needs balance.
