In this ebook, we discuss how to effectively use social media channels to promote your book and your brand. Twitter, for example, is the largest social bookmarking site on the Internet today, with over 500 million users in 2012. It enables users to read and reply to short text-based messages (tweets’), and helps users generate a following. When linked to other social media channels, such as Pinterest, for example, it can be a useful promotional tool for your book. Likewise, we explain how social cataloguing websites like Shelfari, with its book clubs and forums, and Goodreads, which allows users to rate and review books, can help you and your book to reach its intended market.
