In This Episode, Michelle Talks About…
- Share and recommend the author’s book
- Write a review on platforms like Goodreads and Amazon
- Extend your congratulations, invite them to your podcast, or include them in your newsletter
Share and recommend the author’s book
Sharing and recommending an author’s book on your social media platforms is a powerful way to support them. Your followers trust your recommendations, and this could lead to increased sales for the author. Michelle shares a personal story of how a picture of her reading a book led to a pre-order of that book by a follower.
Write a review on platforms like Goodreads and Amazon
Writing a review on platforms like Goodreads and Amazon can significantly boost an author’s visibility and credibility. Pre-publication reviews are particularly helpful, and positive reviews can counter any potential negative reviews that might be posted out of spite or without even reading the book.
Extend your congratulations, invite them to your podcast, or include them in your newsletter
Lastly, simply extending congratulations to an author can provide them much-needed encouragement during the long and often solitary process of writing and publishing a book. If you host a podcast or have a newsletter, inviting the author to share about themselves and their book can also help them reach a broader audience. In conclusion, supporting an author goes beyond buying their book; it involves helping them amplify their work to reach more readers.
