New Product: Full Service Twitter For Writers - webbella.com

New Product: Full Service Twitter For Writers - webbella.com | Emarketing for the Technically Challenged | Scoop.it

I'm getting ready to launch a full service Twitter service for writers and authors.


The objective of this service will be...


1. To establish the writer on Twitter with a profile image, header, and bio.
2. To acquire a following targeted to match their goals, values, and genre.
3. To tweet news and blogs relevant to their author brand and important to their audience.
4. To free up the author's time so they can spend more time writing and revising instead of monitoring their Twitter account.

 

This service is ideal for


1. People who are inexperienced with Twitter.
2. Indie authors and traditionally published authors who need more website traffic and book sales.
3. Writers who are having trouble developing an engaged following.
4. Writers who are too busy to manage their accounts effectively.


This package will cost $100 a month and come with Hootsuite Analytics and Tweet Adder Features. No contract necessary. Pay as you go.


ATTN: National Novel Writing Month participants.
November is a special month for some writers–a month of locking yourself in a room with a pot of coffee and a crazy story idea. Being distracted by Twitter during NaNo could be your downfall, so...

 

In honor of NaNoWriMo, The FIRST TEN CLIENTS will be locked in at
$80 a month!

 

Write with abandon knowing that your Twitter account is alive and growing as you forge your next masterpiece.

Stories are a hot commodity right now. Writers who can tell a good story are in hot demand, too.

 

Your blog can be ho hum, but can become hum hum! with a great story inserted inside. Like a chewy center in the middle of the tootsie roll pop.
