Let’s face it. Social Media is hot. Almost everyone you know is on Facebook these days, including your grandma. Your local news station wants you to follow them on Twitter. Your friends share home videos on Facebook from YouTube. You received a resume with a link to find references for the candidate on LinkedIn. Activity on social networking sites is growing daily. If you are not already leveraging these resources in your marketing efforts, now is the time to get started!
I blog about book marketing tips for authors because book marketing is one of my specialties. Social media is important for authors in their book promotion efforts, as it is for any business owner with a product to sell or any non-profit organization with a message to share.
How social media can benefit your business or organization
Businesses can use social media to help grow their business by increasing customer loyalty, generating leads and referrals, driving traffic to the website, promoting events, increasing visibility, monitoring reputation, keeping an eye on the competition, and providing better customer service.
Non-Profits can use social media to increase awareness for their organization, promote events, run fundraising campaigns, personalize interactions with supporters, educate, and provide better customer service.

I’ve just completed my first book. It is a poetry book filled with poems from bereavement, military pain to love and intimate moments. The book is written to appeal to men and women with something that readers from the ages eighteen to eighty and older to appreciate and enjoy. I would love help on the very best ways to promote and sell my book.
