I am a student currently working on my thesis for college. For my thesis I am testing unconventional tactics that book authors could implement themselves. I am also revealing how this changing book market works and how authors could respond to these changes.
I am making a true how-to guide on how to improve your chances of becoming a successful book author.
In this particular post I will be talking about creating a bigger following using one of my favorite social media sites.
My biggest success in creating a following has been on Booklikes. Booklikes is unique in how people can interact. This is the most “book culture” centered site I have ever seen, giving me far more to work with.
Want to be known on Booklikes?
Here’s some ways to get followers on Booklikes:
There are no friends on Booklikes, only followers. When you follow someone, they get a notification that you are following them. I don’t find this spammy or half hearted like a random friend request. So I followed 200 people who I thought I would want to interact with. Surprisingly 50 of them followed me back within a week and almost 20 more came around eventually! haha
Create a Provocative Group:
Booklikes users tend to like controversy and all things juicy. To keep true to my thesis and to achieve this, I made my group named “Censored by Goodreads.” The group talks about the censorship of Goodreads since the Amazon buyout. This group is now one of the biggest groups on the site and I have gotten around 50 followers from it directly. It continues to grow.
Don’t Just Post Book Reviews!
I have positioned myself as more of a “book culture” blogger than a “book reviewer.” This was easy for me, because that’s more my realm and I can come up with new content a few times a day without spending hours upon hours doing it. By positioning myself like this I can post things like Harry Potter GIF’s or have funny Memes about Lord of The Rings. I will post more on making a good post in the future.
