One of the most important aspects, after actually writing a quality book, is reaching people who might want to buy your book. But how are you going to do that? Maybe you've had your blog for a long time, but not many people are coming to your pages to read your content. Maybe your book has been out for a while and, even though you post to Facebook and Twitter, you just don't seem to be creating much of a following.
There are tools out there to help you reach more people. One of them is Triberr. Triberr is a community, and you can create your own community of authors to share each others' content within Triberr. First, you need a Triberr account. Then you need to join some groups on Triberr, preferably groups of writers or groups who share content related to the content of your book.
This is where the number of people you can potentially reach with each blog post grows. For each person you add to your Triberr group, or who is already in a group you join, your list of people you will reach grows - not by one person but by all of the people who follow them on Twitter.
For example, the number of people who follow my @beckyfyfe account on Twitteris 3,682. If I join a group of 10 people (in addition to me) and every member in that group in addition to myself has 2,000 followers, then the potential number of people I can reach with each one of my blog posts grows to 23,682 people.
You can start your own group and add people to it, or you can join a group that is already set up. I have just set up a new group called Writing Warriors on Triberr for those of you who follow this challenge. If you'd like to be added to the group, let me know your Twitter user name and the name you are signed up as on Twitter (for example, mine is @beckyfyfe and Becky Fyfe) in the comments and I will add you to the Writing Warriors group.
The key in using Twitter here is to make sure that the people in your group are sharing the type of content you want to share and your followers will enjoy, but also to have members who remain active and share each others' blog posts out regularly. If you have members who never share your blog posts, then you lose out on that poteential source of getting your content in front of the eyes of others.
This is just one of the prizes that you might win at the end of the challenge. (Subject to availability. If this Book Magic Keychain is not available at the time, something similar will be substituted.) One of these will be added to the collection of prizes that one signed up member will win during the drawing on April 30th.
