So ten months in, I find myself having to find courage to really find my way around the areas of marketing that remain my weak points… namely the area of social media and marketing appropriately!
The former has always made me feel like I am finding my way in the dark… how to use Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc. (and comment/post without breaking rules), whether to invest in ‘boosting’ (done it twice now and seeing interaction from all over) and generally trying to understand how it works.
The latter is proving tricky as I want to increase awareness of the book’s existence to schools, education departments etc but need to do so keeping in mind the SPAM laws! So lots of phone calls to different organisations is the best way, but takes time!
I remember someone saying to me that writing and actually having a book published is the EASY bit… the sharing and ‘getting it out there’ is where the hard part really begins.
So today- yes on Thanksgiving weekend, I have been trying to join math FB groups- so many!
Very excited to say I had an enquiry last week from South Africa!!!
Happy Thanksgiving- and Happy South Africa equivalent!
PS Did I ever mention that I have no idea if anyone reads this blog- but I am loving doing it!
