Pinterest for Authors: A Beginner's Guide | Jane Friedman | Book Promotion and Marketing | Scoop.it
Learn four reasons writers might want to use Pinterest, how to best use the platform, and best practices to get the most traction for your work.
Penelope's insight:

 

This is an extremely detailed post on how authors can use Pinterest to promote themselves, their blogs, and their books. Simplified? Make sure to have a business account, get your blog verified, and set up at least two boards for your blog and your books. If you're writing something new, you can give readers a sneak peek of your creative behind-the-scenes process on another board.

SOCL - Visual Social Networking for Authors (or Anyone)

SOCL - Visual Social Networking for Authors (or Anyone) | Book Promotion and Marketing | Scoop.it
Pinterest versus Socl? Well, I really don't think so. Pinterest is a huge monster - third largest social network in the world - and it's humming with activity.
Penelope's insight:

 

Do you pin your books to Pinterest? If not, you should start--since it is the third largest social network in the world! I pin all my books on a couple of different boards, and I also have several other Pinterest boards relating to all things self-publishing. Pinterest requires you to find the pins and set them up attractively so that others will grab them and pin away!

 

There is a lesser known, but up and coming new visual network called SOCL. This article discusses this new social site that I hadn't yet heard of--another ebook promotion angle worth checking into.

 

SOCL could work as another free visual site for exposure of your books to the world. Socl is the new guy in town, and a little more limited because users can only post what they can find on the search engine Bing. Advantages? Fast and easy to create your board. Just type in your search term and you pin directly from the results right onto your board.

 

Take a look at SOCL and see if there are ways to incorporate this new site into your ebook promotion and marketing plan.

New study reveals key insights behind Pinterest’s growth | Trendist

New study reveals key insights behind Pinterest’s growth | Trendist | Book Promotion and Marketing | Scoop.it
Penelope's insight:

 

I admit that my name is Penelope and I am an "extreme pinner". When I stumble onto this site, I literally have to tear myself away. If you want to see how I've been using Pinterest, check out my site and follow a few of the boards or all of them!

There are four powerful verbs that distinguish Pinterest:

 

o USE

o LOOK

o WANT

o NEED

 

OK. Does this mean that if I make pins of my book covers "drool-worthy" that I will attract more readers? Maybe I should pin a piece of pie next the picture of the cover. It's worth a try! ;)
