Ask An Author: What is your most effective social media platform?

Today, I’ve asked my panel of published authors the question, “What is your most effective social media platform?” Here are their answers….

—————————————————————————————————————————————————-

“WordPress is most effective for people to read samples of your work and get a real idea of what you write, why you write, and how you write.  Twitter is most effective for getting quick attention and saying, “Hi. I have a book. Would you please read it?  Thanks!”

-Decker Schutt

“Facebook, with WordPress as a close second.”

– S.L. Stacy

“I’ve found Facebook, don’t over post there otherwise you will drive perspective readers away, and Twitter to be the best. Also doing radio interviews and blogs.”

– Lindsay Downs

“Facebook because I cheat. When I post on Facebook it also posts on Twitter. I kill two birds with one stone.”

-Tricia Andersen

“For me, it’s WordPress, hands down. WP is where most of my followers are and where more people are engaged.

FB would be my second choice. Though it seems most people that follow my FB page know me in real life, so I wouldn’t say it’s been a good way for me to communicate with my readers.

I’m a big fan of  the “don’t spam your friends” on FB thing. So, I don’t post writing related things on my personal FB. If my close friends/family want to know what I’m doing writing wise, they follow/check my page.

-H.N. Sieverding

“(facebook, twitter, wordpress, etc) Facebook, for allowing communication with readers and friends of course, although WordPress is a great tool for allowing you to improve your writing craft and connect with other writers who in some cases also become wonderfully dear friends.”

-Paula Acton

  2. This suggests I’m employing a viable strategy. I use Twitter and a FB writer page sparingly. I use WordPress to post flash fiction and respond to all comments in a way that facilitates productive relationships. I also host a separate inspirational blog. I just expect quicker results, something I can control only to a limited degree.
