How to gain organic followers?

How to gain organic followers?

This post is gold! Cristian Mihai wrote a very soulful post on how to gain your followers or readers when you blog. Now, I believe this applies not just for bloggers but also authors.

Now, let me share with you how being authentic helped to just forget about stressing if I’ll attract readers for my blog, thoughtsandviewsthatmatter.blogspot.com because I know for a fact that what I wrote there would definitely interest readers who are keen to learn about social issues.

Being authentic had helped to me to grow my audience, and even had an author sending her book to me as a gift. This is also how I plan to promote my new book.

I’m still in the planning phase of my new book, but I’ve roped in my audience, asking them what social issues pertaining to women that they want me to discuss in my new book.

I’ve had readers saying Female Genital Mutilation, forced marriage, and human rights as some of the issues to be incorporated into the book.

Tentative cover idea of my new book

Just so you don’t know, this book is going to be highlighting issues that are common to women across the world. For instance, rape happens in a different context and intensity in different countries. Spiking drinks and raping women when they are drunk happens in the Western part of the world. Whereas, marital rapes are more prevalent in the East.

Do you have an idea that would fit my book? Please, please drop me an email to jassie987 at gmail.com and follow my blog at thoughtsandviewsthatmatter blogspot.com

It creates an interest even before the book is released. Genuine interest because you’re being authentic.

Pinterest Marketing Strategy for Authors

Do you know that Pinterest is one of the tools you might want to add to your marketing strategy as an author of you’re an author, trying to gain some traction.

I’ve seen many business blogs gaining traffic to their website merely by being active on Pinterest.

However, Pinterest is not a social media platform where you connect with your fans. You’re most likely to gain followers if you post tips and collections of useful information pertaining to your subject matter.

With that being said, you can also find other public boards related to writing and contribute to the boards by pinning interesting news from your blog posts.

I’m still learning how to optimize Pinterest for marketing but I thought this post of worth your time.

I always think that authors associate book signings with the amount of sales they make, but in the actual reality, it is really a drip marketing, where people get to know you and the more you show up on the media, the more they remember you and the tendency to buy your book later would be higher.

Here is a blog post from Yecheilyah where she shares her experience on book signing events.
