Bestselling author Renée Pawlish discusses Flipboard, the online magazine, and shares tips on how indie authors can use it for book marketing.
I stumbled across another creative method for indie authors to promote their books. It's called FLIPBOARD, and it's actually a magazine app for iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets. Now this market might be one you want to reach--since Flipboard readers have hit 50 million!
You actually have the ability to create your own magazine, to which anyone can subscribe. Now, you'll have to be a bit creative, since people want to learn and don't want to be sold to every minute. Here are some ideas for indie authors depending your writing genre:
Flipboard Tip #1 – Create An Enticing TITLE - You want them to click into your magazine (i.e., Hot Flash Updates from a Menopausal Momma)
Flipboard Tip #2 – Create An Enticing DESCRIPTION - Again, think like a copywriter (i.e., Enter the manic world of hormones and hot flashes)
Flipboard Tip #3 – Pick The Right CATEGORY For Your Magazine - Just as in Amazon, categories are uber important to be found.
Flipboard Tip #4 – Be CREATIVE With Your Magazines - You can also include videos, music and photo. You can base your magazine on a character. You can have a collection of pictures of published stories with a similar theme.
Remember, you will find readers when you are teaching and being entertaining! Think like there is no box, and let your imagination soar!
