The internet has us communicating in ways we never imagined just a few short years ago, and one of the primary benefits of this kind of communication is social networking. The world is becoming smaller and smaller, and it is now just as easy for me to have a conversation with my wife's sister (who serves as a missionary in Nepal) as it is with my own sister (who lives here in Oklahoma). In fact, we can all communicate at the same time through tools like Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter.
The good news is that these social networking sites are good for more than simply finding out how unattractive that old high school flame turned out to be. They can actually help us connect, do business, and if you're an author, sell books! If you're unfamiliar with the concept of social networking, check out the video below to see what social networking is all about:
Tate Publishing is now assisting our authors with building customizable MySpace and Facebook pages. Our goal is that these tools will help our authors connect with their target audience, explore new possibilities, and even connect with far away friends that simply didn't know they had published a book!
If you'd like more information about how social networking can work for you, contact your Tate Marketing Representative. Whether it's through joining online book clubs, becoming a "fan" of another book (and in turn, building your own "fan" base), or simply making you and your book more visible, we want to help take you to the next level and help you discover the power of social networking!
