Last weekend we presented at the Pacific Northwest Writers Association Conference! With our panel of experts which included, Ross Swartwout, Scotty Iseri, and Gerri Russell, we discussed the importance of author platforms and how to effectively build them! Throughout the presentation, we tweeted out some "nuggets of wisdom" from our session. So, if you weren't able to be at the PNWA Conference or our session, here are a few takeaways from the presentation:
"The cover is the introduction to your book, and people do judge your book by its cover" - Scotty Iseri #PNWA16— Visual Quill (@VisualQuill) July 30, 2016
"It's really important to pay attention to the frequency of your social media posting... People like consistency" - Ross #PNWA16— Visual Quill (@VisualQuill) July 30, 2016
"As an author, with Twitter, you can keep your finger on the pulse" - Ross Swartwout #PNWA16— Visual Quill (@VisualQuill) July 30, 2016
"How do I know if I'm doing well on social? That's where engagement comes in." - Ross Swartwout #PNWA16— Visual Quill (@VisualQuill) July 30, 2016
Whether you were at the PNWA Conference or not, we hope these tidbits of information can help you begin the process of building your author platform!
