I’ll also give you some insider knowledge on how to successfully launch your own book.

Be consistent with your small following

A small, engaged following is better than having tons of followers who never engage with your content. Everyday I have to block fake followers. They’re not going to grow your community or engage with you in a productive way.

Consistency creates opportunity

Some people will follow you but not engage for a long time. Make sure your profile name and bio accurately reflect what you do and what you can do for them.

I recently had two followers who were just lurking on my page but were watching me because of my name, Authentic Online Marketing Pod. But because they knew who I was and what I can do for them, they reached out and I was able to book two speaking engagements at their conferences.

Consistency builds community

I knew I needed to write a book this year but I was struggling to reign myself in and get on track.

But at every juncture God sent me who I needed at that time. All I knew is that I didn’t want to format my book and I didn’t want to make the book cover.

Formatting “Empty Nest Awakening”

The Lord brought Mandy Roberson into my life who asked me to speak at her conference. I learned what Mandy did for authors and I was so excited to learn that she could do all of the formatting and design work for me!

Small but mighty

I might have a small number of followers, but they’re a mighty number and they are excited for my book! People will take notice of you if you’re consistent.
