Useful tips for Authors:
If you are new to promoting on Twitter, I found a helpful article and great tips from Laura Pepper Wu. She explains what hashtags are and why they are effective in sending out your message to your targeted audience.
To be honest with you, it wasn’t until a few months ago, I was a bit behind with using Twitter and couldn’t understand how it would help me gain an audience for my blog. I was skeptical at first. I had only been using twitter for personal tweets with my friends and colleagues. I had a very controlled number of followers and only followed people in my circle. I didn’t understand how people who had thousands of followers could honestly read tons of tweets every day. I also didn’t know how my tweets would even be noticed if I had that many followers. However, I am finally convinced that Twitter is a great medium to connect with people who would be interested in what I had to say.
So what are hashtags? Simply they are keywords followed by # that help filter out tweets. A sample hashtag to target other authors would be #authors.
Here are some useful hashtags to help promote you Kindle book:
#kindle #kindlefire #kindledeals #Kindlefreebooks #goodreads #greatreads #ebooks #AmazonPrime #Kindledeals #mustread #bookmarket #kindlebooks #Amazon
