AuthorPond - Providing Increased Online Visibility for Authors
Give Us 200 Words, Give Yourself the Advantage of a Powerful Personal Brand
Congratulations, you have written your book. You should be commended on bravery, after all you just entered one of our most hyper-competitive marketplaces. Book publicity and author publicity is an endurance sport.
A robust author profile should be one of your stops along your path to promoting yourself. You have already crafted tens of thousands of words so we know you can write. So go ahead and muster a few hundred more for the success of your personal brand. An investment of less than an hour of your time will pay long-tail dividends for years to come.
A well crafted AuthorPond profile will include a 2-3 paragraph about yourself. What inspires you? Why do you choose your subject matter? What is your back story? In addition to your bio, you need to include an author photo, contact information and links to your website, blog, youtube, Facebook, Twitter and other online assets. Think of your AuthorPond profile as a central hub where someone can go to learn everything they want to know about you--at least as much as you want them to know.
You have the opportunity to list your books or other creative works below your profile. Take some time to become your own Amazon.com affiliate before you list your books. As an affiliate you earn an additional percentage each time you direct a buyer to Amazon to purchase you book. Why not?
