Platform Building for Writers

Part of my business plan includes promotion, for writers today one of the most effective ways to promote is to build a platform. Quite simply, this is just the space where you market yourself. If your platform is effective it can help guide readers to your books and generate sales.

If you've read any writers' blogs you'll already know that there is a huge supportive community out there. Other writers will not only cheer you on, give you great tips and ideas, but sometimes they'll even buy a copy of your book (I know I LOVE buying a book that I find on a blogger-friend's site). 

Let writers help you with building your author platform - a good start? Check out Rach Writes. Rachel runs the Writers' Platform Building Campaign and you can sign up! It's a great way to meet new followers for your blog. I've joined up - will you?

  3. I've watched the crusade through several cycles. It's a cool idea, but I don't think it's does anything for anyone's platform, other than Rachel's. Once it's over, everyone goes back to doing what they did before. That's not a platform from my understanding of the definition. ;)

    I'm looking forward to see what she comes up with this time. The assignments are always very challenging.

  4. Fellow Campaigner here. Yes, building a platform is important, but I don't think collecting other authors helps that much. It's a great way to get to know very interesting people, the ones that share a bizarre addiction of putting words on an empty page, but I don't think having many author friends will help selling my book(s). But I don't care. I love the campaigner challenges. ;-)

  12. Hello from the campaign! I hope you decide to buy my book someday, even if it's for your children. Right now I'll be happy to finish converting it to first person. If you visit my blog (http://sherahart.blogspot.com), please weigh in on the post before last. I'd rather not divulge the info in the second paragraph, but if I don't, adults expect something Science Fictiony from the events in the first three chapters and get upset when they land in something more like James and the Giant Peach.
