Marketing tip: Use text in your hyperlinks

Posted by Maria Murnane on July 22, 2014 at 9:57am 0 Comments

Including hyperlinks in your marketing materials is a great way to send people to your Amazon page, or your website, or your Facebook page, or anywhere you want them to go. But the actual links can be long and quite unsightly, so I suggest using the text function to make them look clean, pretty and professional.

 

Hyperlinks look better with text!

Let's use the e-mail signature as an example. Including a clever blurb about your books and a hyperlink or two in your e-mail signature is a fantastic marketing strategy that I've been recommending for as long as I've been writing this blog. However, I often receive e-mails from authors that include crazy long links. To protect the guilty, I'm…

[THE WRITER'S LIFE] Vacation

Posted by Cindy Eastman on July 22, 2014 at 6:00am 5 Comments

I just got back from ten days in Italy. It was, in a word, amazing. And that’s not even a very good word. As I prepared to be away from my daily life for ten days, I considered what to do about my writing. I have a small, leather travel journal that I always pack with me, but a quick flip through the pages of past trips gives evidence that I don’t seek it out very frequently. I’m supposed to be promoting my recently published book via updates and newsy items on my virtual, digital platform, but I decided that I would have to take a break from it while I was gone (I think my publisher just fainted as I wrote that). I was going on vacation--it would be okay if I took a break to enjoy some time off and visit friends and relatives whom I hadn’t seen in over three years, right?

However, when one is a…

The 10 Biggest Mistakes New Authors Make

Posted by Brooke Warner on July 21, 2014 at 8:00pm 5 Comments

I have to preface this post by noting how easy it is to make mistakes when you're on the road to becoming a published author. This is an emotional journey, and ego can sometimes get in the way. Then there's the many details you must hold, which even publishers get wrong from time to time. I've experienced firsthand the pain of a few or more projects that went to print with pretty egregious problems. And it hurts. Sometimes entire print runs are destroyed as a result. These top 10 mistakes are among the most common I see in my work with authors. Some are about mindset and others are more technical oversights. If you've made any of these mistakes, you're in good company. The best we can do is learn, and spread the word so others take heed.

1. Believing what they want to…
