It’s difficult for writers to grasp the concept of using social media to increase awareness and sales. This is because most writers fail to approach their writing as a business. Even if writing is only a hobby, even if you only enter contests or write short stories, you are a business. You are in the business of finding readers for the words you put down on paper. You both want and need to greater exposure to new and bigger readership markets to make a success of your writing career.

The other way that you can add value is through making your own videos. And ideally posting them on YouTube. A lot of people are doing this. It’s also a great way to get your message across and, plus, it is more personal as people get to see you talk. There are also other websites that offers video-hosting platforms, such as Vimeo, Vzaar, to name a few. You can choose the best ones out there and start making your own video.

For those of you that haven’t set up a twitter account, now is the perfect time. Hop on over to TWITTER and get started. There’s opportunity to follow other authors and writers. You can learn so much by simply by following someone who writes.

My interests works especially well to drive traffic to highly “visual” (image-driven) content. It doesn’t have the same impact on text-based content. take the idea of your book and make it visual.

You can also add a “Pin It” button to your website or blog like you would with Facebook or Twitter. That makes it easy for visitors to share your products or content with others.

Overall, a strong social media marketing campaign combined with a well-run pay per click advertising campaign can help grow your business . . . and keep it growing!
