Before reading this totally absorbing book I didn’t think Goodreads would work for me. I’m an author without much time to read for pleasure. Trust Frances Caballo, the guru of social media, to ferret out the whys and hows of this marvelous platform and make me a believer!
Goodreads is a powerful tool for authors, but you need to know how to use it effectively to maximize its value. And it’s not hard, if you follow Frances’ directions and great “show me” screen shots. I couldn’t wait to dive in. So hurry and buy this book before Goodreads changes the screen shots and you have to think more!
This book tells you how to set up a goodreads account and show that you love reading.
The former seems a waste of time (how hard is it to set up n account? If you can download a kindle book, you have the skills to set up a goodreads account!) the latter seems like a moot point. If you don't love reading, why be on goodreads? Why be a writer for that matter?
There is no useful marketing advice. I read it start to finish in less than 15 mins, so at least I didn't waste my time on it. It tells you not to be a pushy marketer. Duh. Who wants to be a pushy marketer?
I'm reading all the books I can find, to see if anyone's figured out this platform re marketing. So far, there's not much useful advice. I'll keep looking. I'm on goodreads cause I love reading, but with millions of readers on goodreads it seems like an untapped opportunity if only authors knew what to do with it! (In a non-pushy way, of course!)
When the author told me about the guide she had just finished, I knew I had to read it. Frances already taught me to use Twitter better, plus I sensed my involvement at Goodreads was lacking. I knew I had underutilized Goodreads, but had I misused it? Unfortunately I had.
Within a few pages I was at my author dashboard making changes thanks to Frances. Humbling too, because I'm supposed to be an expert on these things. My Goodreads strategy was limited to filling out an author profile, leaving reviews of some books I've read and listing those I've written. That was it, my involvement based on self-interest more than a love of reading and sharing. A bit shameful now that I think about it.
The guide makes everything simple. Plus it's fun. Frances reminds us it's about sharing great books and connecting with people who love discussing them. There are plenty of screenshots to help newbies follow along to make the most of the site and get more enjoyment from it.
If you're a reader, a writer, or someone who wants to participate more in the Goodreads community, do yourself a favor and get this book.
