I was reading another blog post today when I thought about this topic. Recently, I made a big change that could be good or bad for my writing. As some of you know, I used to write on Wattpad. A lot of my marketing and getting readers was from Wattpad. The joy of Wattpad is readers could find my story and add it to their reading list. However, now I’m just another little person on WordPress without an easy way to find me (or my stories).
This leads me to wonder, “How should I market my stories?”
I already have a Facebook page, Twitter page, and I still use my Wattpad site. Well, I don’t really use my Twitter and Wattpad site; I just kind of have them.
My dilemma now is how to get new readers to find me
Marketing isn’t easy. In fact, I read an article today about why an author quit his day job. He commented that if he still had his day job, he wouldn’t be able to market or promote his work like he did.
One method I use to promote my work is to ask readers questions about the story. Well, don’t try it, it doesn’t work =( I am kind at a loss here for how to market my work. If anyone has any tips or ideas, please let me know. Since I’ve left Wattpad behind to explore the writing world on my own, I’m like a lost kitten trying to find a new home.
Oh, and by the way, I will have a new cover of Clash of Tides coming and new pictures of Assan =) Sigh…I would think a story about merman and mermaids would gather more readers, but I guess not.
