By Lizzie Chantree
Networking can be tricky, especially if you are shy, or lack confidence at times. When I wrote my first book, I was used to making retail and wholesale sales face to face, but selling a book you’ve written is different. It feels very personal and pushing it out into the world is scary. You may even suffer from imposter syndrome, and worry you don’t deserve success or aren’t as good at something as everyone else. Believe me, the majority of creative people I speak to feel that way. Being artistic can mean we are wonderfully sensitive to the world around us. This helps us in our art, but it can also make us doubt ourselves unnecessarily. At first, even the word ‘marketing’ scared me! Now I find it a challenge that I enjoy. What difference a year or two can make.
Word of mouth is very powerful. Having a network of friends, family, colleagues, readers, business owners and contacts to help you can give your work a head start and make it stand out from the crowd. Books, especially, can get lost in a sea of new releases. Thousands are published each day. What can you do to make your work fly off the shelves?
In my book, Networking for writers, I talk about how networking can help you as a writer, I offer ways to simplify your marketing plan and make it more effective, I give ideas for apps that might help save time in scheduling social media posts, as well as talking about author branding, Facebook groups, networking hours, hashtags for writers, your timelines and more.
