Beyond Facebook: How to Make Social Media Work for You
November 21, 2015
A special workshop with Karma Bennett
In this workshop, we dig into the nitty gritty of spreading the word about your book with social media.
We explore different social networks, find the right one for spreading the word about your book, and come up with a personalized plan.
Topics include Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, Reddit, Google+, Tumblr, LinkedIn and, yes, even Facebook!
You'll learn essential tools that make using social networks more efficient, as well as critical do's and don'ts for social media etiquette.
