Press Release Fun: How to Collaborate With the Kidlit Community
I saw this from Mark Blevis of Just One More Book! the other day. Looks mighty interesting at that. Note:
Greg Pincus and I have teamed up and will be running a series of four webcasts designed to help publishers, editors, publicists, authors and illustrators better understand how to make the web work for them, and how to engage and collaborate with the Kidlit community.
The series is titled How social media can help you sell books: Guidance for the book publishing industry and its stakeholders and each installment will seek to answer the question "How does this help me sell books?"
Don’t miss the first four free sessions.
*SEP 10 – Finding the Conversation: Who’s talking about you and what they are saying*
Understanding search and alerts to monitor the digital conversation. This session will focus on effective use of Google with references to Technorati, Twitter and IceRocket.
*SEP 17 – Twitter: More than “What are you doing?”*
Why use Twitter, how to engage and craft your message, using hash tags and a few Twitter stories.
*SEP 24 – Bloggers/Podcasters are People, Too: Engaging with the social media community*
Recommendations for meeting, relating to and collaborating with the social media community.
*OCT 01 – Remarkable Use of the Internet to Promote Books and the People Behind Them*
Storytelling and interesting examples of effective book promotion in the digital age.
Thanks a million!
