Four Ways Google+ Communities Help Authors Build Their Platforms

Did you know that Google+ has the second most active user base of all social media sites?

Yet one of the biggest complaints I hear about Google+ from authors is that they struggle to meet potential future readers and to get others to engage with what they’re posting.

The solution to both problems is Google+ communities.

I’m honored to be guest posting at Gene Lempp’s fantastic blog today talking about how authors can use Google+ communities to build their platforms. Please come by and join me.

For those of you who are interested, I’m also teaching a 90-minute webinar called A Crash Course in Using Google+ to Build Your Author Platform on Saturday, April 20th. Cost is $35. Even if you can’t attend live, sign up because the recording will be sent to all who register. Click here to register.

Purple by Marcy KennedyAnd don’t forget that I’m offering a copy of my suspense short story “Purple” as a thank you gift to anyone who signs up for my newsletter. My newsletter will only go out when I have news about new releases (in other words, novels, non-fiction books, and short stories), upcoming courses I’m teaching for writers, exclusive discounts for newsletter subscribers, and freebies. I expect it’ll only go out about once a month. You are not signed up for the newsletter just because you’re subscribed to this blog. To receive the newsletter, be sure to sign up below.
