Marketing. Ain't It a Bitch?
You've probably figured out by the title, marketing is not my strong suit. In fact, I think that's true for a lot of writers. If we were geared toward marketing, we would have went into marketing instead of writing, correct? At least that's my story, and I'm sticking it to it. Grin.
I twitter: some.
I facebook: some. I won't go so far as to say facebook creeps me out, but it makes me distinctly uneasy. It's like the whole world is watching you. And some of the things on facebook: Move over Jerry Springer. Why would you want to put THOSE kind of details out there.
And yet on the upside of the equation, I enjoy blogging. It seems more intimate somehow. You and a band of bloggers grow into online friends. Now granted people can find you just as easily as as they can on facebook, but how many take the time to look?
I do contests. Though, I'm not sure how much effect it has in the world of sales.
Alex Cavanaugh had a unique marketing idea and set up a website titled What Are The Kargrandes prior to the release of Dragon of the Stars. Is that a neat idea or what? Kudos on this, Alex. You're always thinking.
Love, Lattes and Danger is coming out in August. I would love some help from the innovative side of the house. Got any ideas?
