I know what you’re thinking: Why would I post a subway map on a site that is clearly not dedicated to subways or maps. That is a good and fine question. For those of you who took a cursory glance at the above image, you may have thought it was the Tokyo subway system printed in English. That is a good and fine hypothesis. But it’s wrong.
Penny Sansevieri (@Bookgal), CEO & founder of Author Marketing Experts, Inc., is a best-selling author and internationally recognized book marketing and media relations expert who posted a piece entitled “10 Great New Social Media Tools for Indie Authors” a couple of months ago. I’m just getting around to it now. I know, I know, I know. But I’m, like, you know, like totally crazy busy and, like, super-duper popular, so…you know, it’s just been, like, really hard to keep up with my recreational subw…err…social media maps.
I’ll let Ms. Sansevieri do the heavy lifting on this one, as the 10 tools she mentions are way past my pay grade. However, for those of you more tech-savvy – the veritable social media heavy hitters – do take a moment to go over the above post if you want to up your marketing game, especially if you’re an indie author, through a medium that will, as Ms. Sansevieri states, “still be important for quite some time.”
