LinkedIn: Promoting Your Book With LinkedIn

See on Scoop.itEBook Promotion and Marketing

There are many things you can do to attract attention to your publication, but promoting effectively with LinkedIn requires specific techniques that are professional without being overly self-promotional.

Penelope‘s insight:


OK. Everyone wants to talk about Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+ for promotion of your ebooks; but what about forgotten step-child Linked in?

I admit, I was slow to embrace Linked In as a place to promote myself as an author, but I am slowly coming around. 101 Members Worldwide isn’t shabby!

You can not only set up a (FREE) and powerful profile to showcase you and your talents, but you can also list your publications, links, and descriptions to said books in the same location.

There are a myriad of groups to join that will allow you  to promote a link to your newest work. Here’s a sampling of a few: Books and Writers, Writer’s Cafe, Linking and Forwarding on B&N and Facebook. Do a search and find several to join–just don’t spam the group.

This beautiful infographic shows the stats on users of Linked In. LI is used by 69 of the top 100 Fortune 500 companies, and there is a higher trust factor. I think of Linked In in terms of lots of professional business people hanging around the worldwide water cooler.
