Know To Grow: Social Media Nails for Building Your Author Platform 
Presented by Lisa Angle

Thursday, July 25, 2019
12 pm CST
(10 am Pacific, 11 am Mountain, 1 pm Eastern)

If you don’t have a platform you must engineer one from the ground up. Essential building materials include community relations, personal branding, and online visibility. Tap into social media to seal bonds between all these different facets. If you don’t see the point of social media, this presentation will help you find a grip and hammer in some of the basic principles.  

You’ll find answers to these questions:
● Which social networking sites are key to your platform?
● What are three crucial actions you must take once you sign up for an account?
● How do you stand out in the noisy online crowd?
● If I don’t have anything to say, what do I post?
● Experts tell me “Don’t post ‘Buy My Book!’.” Is that true?
