Social Media: Strategies to Mastering Your Brand, by David Kelly


Don’t forget to check out my Patreon!

To be honest, there’s no way I can do this review without sounding like a sellout. So here we go: I’m just going to sound like a sellout.

A lot of self-help books and marketing guides out there that profess big money if you follow their step-by-step instructions. Then said instructions are frustratingly convoluted about their process, and most of it is fairly common sense. They’re “tips and tricks” that are common knowledge in the vaguest way. That’s one of the first things that makes this book stand out: it doesn’t try to sell you with the promise of big bucks or a “get rich quick scheme.”

The second thing that stands out is the level of detail, organization, and the general breakdown of each platform they mention. It even gives examples of things to make the tasks easier. There’s helpful links (in the Kindle version, at least). The author’s tone manages to sound like they know what they’re talking about without being a salesperson.

It flowed well, it made sense, and the topics were relevant to the current headings. I actually managed to garner a few new ideas , which is not something I can usually say. I was actually pretty impressed with how this one was laid out.

No Review Today

So, while I’ve been trying to keep to the “post a review a day” mantra, today I’m going to forgo it.

Why?

I’m building myself up to take the necessary leaps forward. I’m terrified of failure. I’m equally as terrified of never having the opportunity to fail. Now, I’m gathering the resources needed to start expanding. I’ve never done anything like this before, so I want to do what I can to get things right.

Today I’m drafting my first newsletter. Working on the details associated with distributing it. Also trying to plan ahead content. I want to make this process as streamlined as possible.

That being said, would anyone like to volunteer to be my first author interview? Comment with your e-mail address below and we’ll talk about it!

I can’t tell you how excited I am to begin this kind of journey. I can only hope I don’t disappoint along the way.

Question for Authors

Books Reviews Anonymous

There’s a local convention coming up at the end of July. They do a sci-if/fantasy book exchange. I was thinking that if authors were interested in donating a physical copy of their novel, I would enter it in said book exchange. Signed copy, possibly?

There’s a limit of three, however. The decision would be made by random drawing of those that signed up?

Of course I’d leave a note with both mine and the authors information asking the reader to provide their thoughts via review and/or social media.

Anyone interested in contributing?
