Coming March 25th… Goodreads

RWchat 3-25-18

March is Social Media Marketing Month on #RWchat, and we’re focusing on the platforms widely used for book marketing.

Goodreads is the reader hangout, and a jungle all on its own. From its brutally honest reviews to its yearly reading challenges to its never ending To-Be-Read lists, it serves as a hub for reader hangout.

Come chat with us about how you use Goodreads as a writer for promo and as a reader for discovering books, Sunday 4pm PT / 7pm ET on #RWChat

Let’s chat about it, Sunday 4pm PT/ 7pm ET.

I have accounts on those platforms, and a few others, but sometimes those additional platforms can be tedious, so I barely use them. My Holy Grail of social media platforms is Twitter.

Coming March 11th… Twitter

romance writers chat march 11th social media marketing month twitterFor March 2018, we’re doing Social Media Marketing Month. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Goodreads… to name a few. We’ll be chatting about each one in the coming weeks.

Sometimes the Twitter timeline can feel like chaos, and tweeting can feel like you’re shouting into the void. While RWchat provides built-in engagement through the question and answer format, engaging on Twitter outside of the chat can be a bit trickier. Oversharing, undersharing, how much is too much? Let’s talk about engaging on Twitter outside of RWchat on Sunday, March 11th, 7pmEST/4pmPST.
