The FIRST thing you should do on Goodreads...
Authors avoid Goodreads. They sprint past it like a child running past a dark room, as if they don't look, and don't pause, the monsters there might not actually exist. But just like the dark room with the imaginary monsters - there is nothing to fear about Goodreads. And actually ... that dark room is a treasure trove of free promotional tools and avid readers.
SueBee (my Goodreads Guru) and I recently held a panel at the RT Convention in Atlanta, GA on Goodreads Marketing 101, and I'll be making a series of posts this week about how to properly use Goodreads. The below video is the first installment, and covers the following:
- How to Claim Your Author Profile on Goodreads (if you haven't already)
- How to Add Your Work-In-Progress (or unpublished) Novel on Goodreads
- Once you have a profile, How to Properly Complete Your Profile
- Common Errors that Most Author Profiles Contain
Click below to play the video, and look for more videos in this series later this week!
