Twitter Promotion Tips for Authors

Twitter promotion tips for authors

Twitter is a great way to promote your book, allowing you to share bite-sized content with your readers across the globe.

But Twitter can be tricky, too!

It took me a few years to really fall in love with Twitter (many of those months spent ignoring it altogether), but now I prefer Twitter to Pinterest, Facebook, and all the other social media platforms I’d just as soon forget.

If you’re new to Twitter, I want to help you hurry through the Twitter growing pains — so you can avoid wandering in the Twitterverse wilderness for months or years like I did.

To that end, I’ve compiled some articles on Twitter promotion tips, etiquette, and more. Some of them are from CD Baby’s DIY Musician Blog, so they deal specifically with music promotion, but the same concepts can easily apply to books and poetry — just substitute the word “author” for “musician.”

Here they are…
