7 Signs It’s Time For You to Create an Online Course of Your Own

55 years ago, a timid, unassuming high school student changed the world forever.

After his uncle had been killed by a burglar, he took it upon himself to hunt down the perpetrator. Soon after starting his search, he found the burglar, and as they stood face-to-face, he realized something …

The criminal was someone he’d seen before. In fact, the teenager had the opportunity to stop the burglar before, but he had failed to act.

Now, if you’re wondering what this story has to do with starting an online course, here’s the tie in:

Do American’s Reading Habits Dictate How Book Publishing Markets Books?

 
Americans love lists, statistics, and factoids that reveal some metric that they can compare themselves by.  If the numbers affirm their views, experiences, and circumstances they are happy.  If it appears they are better than average, they’re even happier. Out of ego, curiosity, or opportunity, we crave to know how we stack up against others. I recently came across stats on geography-based tendencies of Americans and wondered what this could mean for the book world.
For instance, in a recent New York Timespiece that highlighted findings from Facebook data that showed where users “check in when they are traveling abroad” the last four summers, a map can be constructed for each state.  Looks like Californians, Texans and a few other states each find Mexico to be the most popular overseas country. Oregon, Washington, and a few other states up north chose Canada.  But some states chose Liberia, Somalia, Ireland, Bolivia, Tonga and Marshall Islands.  Do these demographics help the book industry figure out how to market books regionally?

Easy author hack for more book reviews

One of my favorite marketing strategies is pretty simple: Study what successful people are doing and copy them.

Authors can do this with the best-selling or well-known authors in their genre or category, too.

It will take you seconds — literally seconds — to find bloggers who review books just like yours.

Email marketing for authors: MailChimp by Frances Caballo for BookWorks.comIf you aren’t using email marketing, you may want to rethink your marketing strategy.

We know that social media is all the rage—and rightly so—but email marketing, according to Kissmetrics “crushes” social media.

Email Marketing Has Advantages Over Social Media

Here are their findings:

1 – There are nearly three times as many user accounts for email as there are for Facebook and Twitter combined.

2 – Email is more personal. You can reach people right in their email inboxes and craft messages just for your readers.

3 – Email gets more attention and the messages are more targeted.

4 – You can use your email marketing messages to sell books, services, and other products.

If you’re considering going the traditional publishing route, your publisher will ask you about your email list numbers. If you’re an indie author, you need an email marketing program to keep in touch with your readers, announce new books, and solicit advance reviews, so you can sell more books.

You Can Boost Blog Traffic Using These Simple Blogging Tools

 

Blogging is so flexible and allows for a lot of creativity and exploration, but losing focus all together can cause trouble. Here are seven tools for bloggers to stay productive and improve blogging experience.

If you’re starting to get serious about blogging, it always helps to have an editorial calendar and an idea of where you want to take your blog. So planning is a must-have technique for every blogger.

Today I thought I’d share the nine tools I use every single day as a blogger. For me, these are the must-haves in my blogging toolbox!

Blog Topic Generator

Some writers would not admit, but many struggles when it comes to creating titles for their work. Titles are important especially since readers would look at the titles before they even spend time looking the first part of the text. With Hubspot’s blog topic generator, you no longer have to think as to what blog title you should use. You can just provide the files with nouns that you want to write about, and the platform generates relevant titles that you can use.

How YouTube Helps Your Social Media Marketing

By Katherine Lane

It has become more convenient today to give people a lasting impression about you on social media through the different online platforms–that is, depending on what you are into. Facebook is not the only one that offers the opportunity for Internet marketing. Using another platform like YouTube, for instance, can become a helpful business strategy to generate online traffic.

As far as content is concerned, video marketing on YouTube has become an effective approach. Increase YouTube views, and you can establish yourself, rather than solely setting up a website where people must find it.

.@WattPad Raccoon is a New Digital Storytelling App

WattPad has just launched a new digital storytelling app for the iPhone and iPad called Raccoon. This app leverages video to tell great stories that are told in 60 seconds or less. Each of these videos is brief, and they feature a true story told by the person who lived it. They can be funny, eye-opening, serious or entertaining. The experience is sort of like a popcorn confessional.

Wattpad co-founder Ivan Yuen said in a statement, “Raccoon’s focus is to deliver real stories from real people, and it’s a critical step forward in realizing Wattpad’s vision to connect and entertain the world through stories. As we look to the future of storytelling,” he says, “it’s clear that video will play an important role—digital video audiences are predicted to reach 2.15 billion this year alone.”
