Bragging or Self Marketing?

Returning from a writer’s conference, I found myself super stressed with how much marketing an individual must do in cyberspace. Dozens of websites, help tools, and self promotion techniques were discussed, leaving me in a muddle.

I have found one common thread between conference discussions of internet marketing: Pick out one or two sites or social media and do those well. Don’t try to do everything. Thankfully, ArkansasWriters.com published this post which is low key and may prove helpful.

“In this day of social networking as an important plank in the writer’s platform, you may want to check out these two sites if you don’t already know about them.

Good Reads is a networking site for readers. You don’t have to be a writer to join and enjoy it, but as the creator of books, you couldn’t find a better place to hang. And if you are a writer, you can present your own books to people for whom reading is important.

The site AuthorsAdvance is geared especially to writers. It offers a “full-featured social network for writers, packed with tools to keep you organized and advice to keep you writing at your best.”
