Leveraging Social Media for Book Releases – A Tech With Heart Interview with Author, Lisa Towles
Did you know that you should start marketing your book up to six months prior to your launch date?
For many newbie authors, this fact about marketing six months before launch comes as quite a shock, because authors are mostly focusing on writing, editing, re-writing, proofreading, designing, and then ultimately publishing their book.
Social media offers authors a lot of publicity and leverage, at little to no cost when strategically managed and executed.
Author, Michelle Calloway, host of the Tech With Heart Show, interviewed Crime Novelist, Lisa Towles about the topic of leveraging social media for book releases.
The two authors offer many good tips and strategies for authors to build up anticipation, excitement, and interest prior to the launch. Since time is a precious commodity, and authors often have very little free time, they also discuss how to set up a marketing strategy that uses automation to schedule the bulk of the posts on social media.
If you are an author and you need some insights on how to leverage social media for your upcoming book release, I highly recommend you give this interview a listen, and reach out to Lisa Towles for a free consultation to discuss your book launch.
In this interview with author, Lisa Towles, you will learn:
- How to build excitement and anticipation from potential book buyers
- How to create various pieces of content and share them during the day of release
- What NOT to do during your book release on social media
