Today’s Blog Post, part of the Don’t Rock Fear Blog Tour welcomes Social Media Guru and Authorpreneur Ms. LaShaunda C. Hoffman to discuss help for authors and breaking free from promotion fear.
Thanks for following the Don’t ROCK Fear Blog Tour.
Welcome to day three of the tour. I would like to thank Tracee for letting me share with you today.
Today’s Promotion, Fear – Stepping Out Of My Comfort Zone
Most writers are pretty shy so, getting out from behind the computer can be a little intimidating. However they also know you can’t sell books if no one knows you have a book.
It’s hard to step away from your comfort zone, but it doesn’t have to be if you find a few things that you find comfortable. I recommend social media if you’re not ready to leave your home.
Social media is a fun way to promote and you don’t have to leave the comforts of your home.
Facebook is all about chatting with readers
Instagram you can share pictures
Twitter you can have fast conversations with your readers.
Find the platforms you like and master them. Before you know it, you won’t be worried about your comfort zones, because you will be building relationships on these platforms and selling books.
When you are ready to venture outside your home, I recommend you start local.
Check out the local libraries they always have events for authors to participate in.
Or you can pitch a workshop or book signings to them.
Become the celebrity author in your hometown; then move to outside areas when you feel comfortable.
Now you don’t have to ROCK this fear anymore. You are ready to move past your comfort zone and become the social butterfly you are meant to be.
I would like to invite you to register for the Don’t ROCK Fear – Promotion Mindset 7 Day challenge and kick fear in the butt.
This challenge is for writers, business owners and anyone who is dealing with fear. Don’t let fear ROCK You. http://bit.ly/PM7Challenge
