Between Books: Bridging the Gap |

Between Books: Bridging the Gap | | Marketing for Writers | Scoop.it

Writing a book is often fairly long process and as a result readers may have to wait up to a year or longer for a return to the world that your last book created. Lovers of your previous work grow to miss the fantastic world you created and it’s characters. They are usually more than willing to shell out the purchase price once they’re finally rewarded with a new book. This is how the relationship between Authors and readers has always been in the past. With the ease of self-publishing and the emergence of social media, this does not necessarily have to be the case anymore. Authors have the tools to change this relationship with their readers and create unique engagement opportunities.

Instagram, Pinterest and the Visual Internet |

Instagram, Pinterest and the Visual Internet | | Marketing for Writers | Scoop.it

If you remember the Internet back in the nineties you may recall there was a lot more text and annoying things that blinked. Easily, by today’s standards these animated gifs would be considered tacky except perhaps on Google+. The Internet has evolved a lot since then and you will find that most websites are much more refined with less blink and more quality graphics. In reality, the modern Internet is very much more graphics based and if current trends continue you can expect it to move towards more pictures and less text. Pinterest and Instagram are two huge examples of how this new visual Internet is going to take shape.

All writers should self-publish

No, I haven't gone entirely mad. Or even, I venture to say, a tiny bit mad. Nor have I started to believe the self-publishing-is-the-answer-to-everything and the publishing-is-completely-broken rubbish.

Curation Techniques, Types And Tips

Curation Techniques, Types And Tips | Marketing for Writers | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Steve Buttry, who has already written several articles on content curation (see the end of his original article), just published this in-depth essay celebrating the launch of a new curation team at Digital First Media and pointing to many of the critical factors neeeded for a content / news curator to be effective.

 

He covers a lot ground while giving a particular emphasis to the importance of linking and attribution. He writes: "Where you can’t learn much about the source of content you’re curating, consider crowdsourcing the question: Note the name and organization, tell readers what you’ve found and that you’re continuing research and ask them what they know about the source.

 

Where the source of online content is unclear, you should be clear about what you know and where you found the material."

 

and...

 

"Sometimes the name of a person or organization is not sufficient attribution.

 

If the person or organization is not well-known, do a little research (Google will provide quick answers in many cases; sometimes an “about us” page will help).

 

Especially in political content, you want to note whether you are linking to partisan sources. A liberal or conservative think tank or political action committee is an entirely different kind of source from a professional media outlet or an independent fact-checking site."

 

Steve Buttry also includes some valuable key guidelines on "how to add value" when curating content and suggests several types of curation approaches that can be used in the newsroom.

 

Good advice on curation and practical tips. 8/10

The Clout of Klout |

The Clout of Klout | | Marketing for Writers | Scoop.it

Lately, there has been a lot of talk about something called Klout. You have most likely heard of it or seen tweets announcing that someone received a +k in some topic or another or even announcing that a particular person has a specific Klout score. Undoubtedly you are probably curious about what exactly all the fuss is about and more importantly is it even something you should be concerned about. The answer is not as clear cut as a simple yes or no at this time. However, there are changes happening in business, human resources, and even airport noodle bars in San Francisco that just might make Klout something you should be paying more attention to.
