AuthorHouse Author Advice on Social Media Marketing and Hiring a Publicist

AuthorHouse Author Advice 

on Social Media Marketing and Hiring a Publicist Author Bruce Kimmel says that "Marketing is everything." When he published his first book in 2001, a time when social media was unheard of, he went to his old high school and posted on discussion boards. This sort of amateur marketing sold him almost 700 books. The first social media ad he put up was on MySpace on the year 2002. But today, with Facebook and Twitter, he said, "It's a lot easier to get word out." He also recommends hiring a publicist, an AuthorHouse Marketing Service he took advantage of that landed him on the ABC News Show
