blogging. Image source.
As some of you may know, I’m currently undergoing a twelve-week Google mentoring programme. Alongside being incredibly exciting (it’s Google!), I’m also learning so much, particularly about marketing.
I’m currently managing online marketing for a travel startup in Barcelona, so I’ve learnt a fair bit about social media from this already, but now I’m starting to think more about how I market my blog.
Should book bloggers be using social media to promote their content and engage with other bloggers and readers? If so, what do you do already?
Social media for book bloggers: a routine and some tips I’m following
I only got my Instagram account last week (after getting a wonderful Nexus 5 phone), but I’m really excited about looking into how other bibliophiles use it. It seems like a great way to find exciting photos and share your own, so I’ll probably post whenever I have lovely new books to share!
This is probably my weakest area of social media, and I’ve only just started working properly on my Facebook page. This must change! The aim is to post every 1-3 days, sharing something like an article from my blog or another site, a literary image, quote, or list.
The more G+ that your articles gain, the more reputation your site seems to get, and it’s a great way of gaining more backlinks. If you’re interested in the connection between Google+ and SEO, take a look at this great article. I’d like to post on my G+ page every 1-3 days, and also keep my bibliotherapy community updated.
