Social media gives writers the opportunity to connect with more readers, agents, and editors than ever before. If you’re new to social networking or want to know how to make the best use of your author platform, here are a few guidelines to help you effectively utilize your online presence:

Engage, Entice, and Be Enthusiastic

Engage in the dialogue. Whether you’re new to marketing your author brand or a seasoned, published veteran, you should establish a professional presence online. If you prefer discussion and commentary, a Facebook Fan Page or a Twitter account is right up your alley. For more image-driven networks, consider up-and-comers Tumblr and Pinterest. And don’t be shy—contribute something. Just be sure that what you post brings something of value to the conversation. You don’t want to appear to be blowing smoke for the sake of attention, or you’ll risk getting a reputation for self-centered promotion.

Entice followers or fans back to your own profile.
