Viral Marketing for Self-Published Authors – Tip #2

Tip #2 – Exist

Last week I gave the first in a series of viral marketing tips: #1 – Give Something Away. I gave an example of a current successful viral marketing campaign taking place on Twitter. This brings me to tip #2. You may know what you want to give away (a copy of your book, a service, etc.), but you may not know how to go about that. If so, the first thing you need to do is develop your online presence. As a self-published author, you need to EXIST online.

There are many social networking sites where you can set up a profile and start networking with other authors and potential readers. Here are a few to get you started:

Facebook
Twitter
MySpace

If you’re already on Twitter or once you set up your profile, you can follow us:
