Author Branding Tips #1: No Engagement is Better Than Fake Engagement

No Engagement is Better Than Fake Engagement

I recently came across authors who probably felt that it is okay to tag their friends in social media every single day in the posts they publish, drop snippets of their book and links to their Amazon site as comments under their friends non-book related posts, and comment in an unengaging way with their friends probably with the hope that it enhances their author branding.

Guess what? It is not going to help people notice you. I think, in order to stop getting overwhelmed with the needs to comment excessively, one should narrow down their focus, and try engaging with people whose posts you genuinely like.

It is also a part of your journey in creating your very own tribe of readers.

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.
