When I entered the Writer’s Got Talent contest 4 weeks ago, I thought I would be meeting some new people and possibly exposing some new people to my books. I had no idea that I would learn so much about marketing and exposure in general.
The creator of Writer’s Got Talent, Bruce Goldwell (www.BruceGoldwell.com) has been a valuable source of information. From him, I have learned how to do a proper Press Release, where is get listed, how to brand, where to find new followers. On top of all of these things, we were given the opportunity to learn how to improve our descriptions, or our Amazon Author Pages. How to grab a potential new buyer and spread the word about our novels. The other authors have also been a wealthy resource of information as well as wonderful supporters. Especially, Jim Henry, Clarence Bonner, Venessa Kimball, and Aoife Marie Sheridan. All of us working together to promote this experience and each other.
I thought I was doing it right before, but I’m seeing where I have totally improved. I’m not sure who will make it through to the last week and final challenge, but even if this is my last week, I have had a great time and I know that I will continue to learn and hopefully remain friends with these other authors. The Writing World can only benefit from the symbiotic relationship of paying it all forward, such as we have been experiencing in Writer’s Got Talent. We are all looking to find that level of success, whatever that is to us. I was looking for more exposure. I got that, but I will also walk away with a lot more knowledge and some new friends. Over all, its been a wonderful ride and I look forward to the next contest and hope it’s been as fabulous as this one 🙂
