So, the 12th question is “How do you market and brand yourself as an author?”
1) Author #1 : Todd Johnson
Social media pod casting also YouTube channel. Go to city events.
This is my branding: Else Byskov is an international authority on the spiritual science of Martinus, the Danish visionary and mystic.
3) Author #3: Sandra Lott
The best way for all up and coming authors, who are not well known yet to use all the available social media sites. They are free advertisement and many out there. I also have an author page on goodreads.com That is another good source it is like an online library, and when you invest in one, or however many books you choose to give away in their author giveaway program, it is a good way to get your name out there all over the world at a minimal cost. People from all over the world use that site.
4) Author #4: Sharon Farber
I created an author website, author Facebook page, and made accounts on Twitter and Instagram. I have author pages on Amazon, Goodreads, and the Llewellyn (my publisher) website. I’ve been giving author talks and book signings at libraries, book stores, and spiritual venues. My book was just published on March 8, 2019, so I’m still at the beginning of this experience. I’ll continue marketing and branding wherever and however I can.
5) Author #5: Mitch Gannon
I try to use Facebook and Instagram. Sometimes I will pay a small amount of money to help advertise. I let The Universe guide me with how to market.
6) Author #6: Hemal Radia
Before I wrote my book I had ‘followed my joy and inspiration’ and had the idea of creating social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter. On there I shared my quotes and ideas and this led to many followers organically (there were over 80,000 followers on Twitter very quickly and similarly on Facebook). I also had an email database as well as blog. So when I released my book I had a platform to market it from the ‘inspiration’ I’d had previously. I say ‘inspiration’ because at that time I was not as marketing savvy as I am now… so in following my inspiration and joy the best ideas, synchronicities and manifestations kept coming my way. This also included live events in Las Vegas, Gold Coast/Australia and much more. I now work with people one-to-one as well as do weekly webinars where I teach my latest methods and answer questions.
7) Author #7: Brina Tharishinee
Let me admit, I am horrible at it! But among my 2019 resolutions, is to market and brand myself; creating a projecting platform for myself and I will be doing so, by setting up a social media page where I can interact with my readers.
8) Author #8: Barry Rice
Y One of the blessings I’ve received is to meet and have the opportunity to work with Gabby Reed of marketingbygabby.com. She does a spectacular job and her motivation and commitment is unmatched. I also communicate via emails with my contacts asking that they also help market my book and or speeches. I have a website at seeyoursunrise.com and an active Facebook presence. I have also done various interviews. Each time I speak to a group, I ask the attendees to help out by recommending to their friends, business associates, family, etc.
9) Author #9: Chris Batts
The most important thing is the message and reaching as many people as possible. I am speaking about my near death experience on several spiritual radio shows / podcasts as well as for the International Association for Near Death Studies (IANDS).
10) Author #10: Syl Sabastian
I don’t bother much. I let that side of matters take care of itself, As Appropriate. I write to express and Share what’s in me, to myself, and to the Universe. That’s enough. The information is then out there for anyone to connect to, if that’s their Intent.
11) Author #11: Donald Smith
By getting your name and books out there sometimes word of mouth and possibly on social media and free podcasts and radio interviews
12) Author #12: Rabjot
Just through Facebook where I constantly share my updates/write ups and quotes.
