This is a quick and easy read, with solid advice broken down into small and easily implemented chunks (some from Beth, some from guest authors). There are sections that seem very Twitter 101, like using lists and setting up a profile, but don't skim past these basics! For instance, the book covers how to write an effective profile blurb that draws attention and encourages people to follow you. It's worth taking a second look at yours to make sure you're using it to best advantage.
Using this book for encouragement and advice on interacting and what to tweet, I was back in business with my neglected Twitter account within a few days. If anything, I could only wish for the book to be longer. Maybe a follow up?
Although not a step-by-step How To Twitter book, she succeeds in laying a firm foundation for the reasoning behind using Twitter. She also is liberal in examples to illustrate her advice in action.
Of particular interest to me were the chapters on Author Branding (chap 14) and Marketing Strategies for Shy Writers (chap 15).
I will be re-reading this little book with a notepad at my side to better glean the gems of experience-born knowledge I found resident in this book.
Be a Smart Cookie, grab Beth's guide and start 2013 right, you'll have SUCH a much better understanding of the value of Tweeps, Twitters, and Tweeting!
The book does exactly what it promises to do - it gives you a short, easy to read and concise guide on twitter marketing. It manages to give basic Twitter information for novices whilst still appealing to Twitter veterans,
Even though I have over 3,000 twitter followers I have no clue how to utilize these followers and use them to help me market my book. Most people follow me after seeing me on TV, radio or magazines, so you could say I'm lucky because I don't have to work hard to get followers but I still battle to sell my ebooks and form "real" virtual relationships.
Reading "Twitter for Authors" helped me understand what I was doing wrong and how to change it. I've learned about setting a goal for twitter, connecting with other authors by mentioning their books (my book references many authors but I never tweet about these authors or connect with them on twitter) and engaging in conversations with others. I have started conversing with people and I'm seeing how this spills over to my Facebook profile and then to my website. The best part is that people then retweet and start telling people about my book by spontaneously sharing their experience.
Another thing that this book will get you to do is to think like your reader so you understand who they are and what they want. I know I'm supposed to do this but I don't because it seems like a long process, but the book breaks the process down and simplifies it. As soon as you understand who your reader is, it becomes easy to connect with them and start tweeting about relevant things. This has been a major aha moment for me and the best take away from the book, because I can see how thinking like my reader suddenly makes me relevant because my tweets are helping them solve problems.
Beth Barany has done a phenomenal job with this book; I highly recommend it for anyone looking to improve their online brand or simply connect with others in Twitter Land.
And Beth Barany does a great job of explaining how this author communication tool works and why all authors should not be afraid to come into the water.
Plus her advice on a "Clear Message" is so important that I've been working on my own since reading her book.
Even if you're already active on Twitter and even if you're not an author, read this short book to help you step up your game to the next level.
