This session was originally scheduled for last spring, but as with most social networking sites, much has changed over the summer. I’m updating the presentation.
You’ll find something valuable in this talk whether you’re new to the profession, a person working full-time or an independent consultant/contractor.
I’ll be focusing on three areas:
Enhancing your personal profile, with a few tricks many people miss. I’ll also be discussing setting up a company page for independent consultants.
Demonstrating your authority, skills, and talents by creating content through group participation and the new Professional Publishing Platform.
Using LinkedIn’s basic and advanced search to find your dream job! LinkedIn offers great tools to find people at companies you want to work for. I’ll also help you decide whether LinkedIn Premium is the right choice for you.
I’ll also be giving away a copy of Build Your Author Platform: The New Rules.
Hope to see you next week! If you have any questions or other topics you’d like to hear about, leave a comment here or on the STC-Wisconsin page.
If you’ve ever wanted to make a career as a book author, or simply want to improve your social-media savvy, mark the date: May 13, 2014. This is when BenBella Books releases Build Your Author Platform: The New Rules, by my marvelous agent and collaborator, Carole Jelen and yours truly.
What is Build Your Author Platform, you ask? A 14-step guide to finding an audience for your writing, nurturing that audience, and selling your books to them when the time comes. Among other things, we’ll tell you how to make Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn work for you.
Can’t wait to see the trailer? Oh, alright, here it is:
Carole and I firmly believe this book will help any writer — published or not, Interested in traditional publishing or the indie/self-publishing route — establish authority, build an audience, and ideally sell a lot of books (paper or electrons) in the process.
Counting Down to May 13
Perhaps you noticed the countdown ticker over on the right side of the page. As time keeps flowing, you’ll see more stuff happening around here. I’ll be adding more information about the book over on the Books page in the coming days. Watch this site and BuildAuthorPlatform.com for events, giveaways and other fun stuff.
