A few months ago now, I wrote about how I’m changing my marketing tactics.
I’m pleased to say that since I did so, book sales have gone up.
Not only that, but hits to The Writer’s Cookbook have tripled.
Now it’s time for more changes to my marketing strategy…
New social media usernames
When you’re trying to build a brand, it’s important that it’s easy for your audience to find you.
One of the ways to do this is to have the same username on all social media platforms.
I’d attempted this a few times, but every time I came up with a username I liked, it was either taken or too long for Twitter.
Recently, I settled on using the same name as this blog for my social media. But that was also too long for Twitter 🙄
And that’s what I’ve done!
Here’s where you can now find me:
You can still find me on Google+ as well, but since that won’t let me add a custom URL (I’ve no idea why), I haven’t included it in the list.
I’ve also created a completely new Instagram that focuses on my books and blog. Unlike my other account, it’s a business account, so I can schedule posts in advance. I currently use Planoly for this, but if you use a different tool to schedule posts to Instagram I’d love to hear about it!
My next step is to set up SmarterQueue. I gave their trial a go earlier in the month and was really impressed. It’s super easy to use and my followers and engagement rates skyrocketed. Since the trial ended, they’ve plummeted 😱
Once that’s ready to go, my evergreen content will share to my social media accounts automatically. This will give me more time to create content, write books, and get more done.
How do you manage your social media accounts? Do you have the same username across all platforms? Why/why not?
