First, brand yourself. Yea, I had no clue what I was doing when I started so having to backtrack on the branding. It is easy to change and if you haven’t done so, do it now AND don’t forget to change the link address where you’ve posted it (like My Stalker Package) because it does NOT automatically re-route people who are looking for you.
This short, useful post tells you how to do it -
Don’t forget to link your blog to your Linkedin profile.
Find like minded-groups and follow their posting rules. Although, if you use an automatic service like me, they go to the front page.
Anyone else have any tips for using Linkedin?
I’ve generally had positive results there, but sometimes people can be a bit dense (older, not techy?) and hijacking threads is common. You can send messages and make connections, but it is writers, not readers, so it only seems good if you have information or tips to share. In general, I’ve found it is a great place to meet other writers and exchange useful publishing/self-publishing information.
