#WWoW! AUTHORSdB is The Place to Be.

Simple Advice for Authors. 
Each week, it's my goal to provide authors with a little piece of what works for me, sharing my knowledge to help others. It was tough starting out as an author and not sure how to do the promotions part of the job. I knew how to write but I had to figure out how to market myself. Here is another SIMPLE way I extended my reach.

Ever heard of the Authors Database?
The fact is every author is looking for a way to reach more readers. Here is a simple way to make that happen with a very small amount of effort. Authors and businesses that offers services to authors can be listed 100% FREE on AUTHORSdBIt is currently the only FREE database of authors that includes social media, book listings and so much more. AUTHORSdB is a place where information is available on authors and is fast becoming the place readers can learn about up-and-coming authors. Get in on this opportunity now as it continues to grow even larger. 

  • AUTHORSdB uses software that engages search engines. Once you're listed in AUTHORSdB, you get these benefits:
  • Organic (non-paid) Google backlinks. These are sorely underutilized but critical to Social Media Marketing.  I received a tweet notifying me, after only 48 hours of registering, that I was now indexed in Google search! Tweets. AUTHORSdB tweets Google alerts when authors get indexed in Google.Whenever an author is listed, they tweet "@[author name] #gotlisted NEW AUTHORSdB Pls RT [link back to author details]"
  • AUTHORSdB likes the author's facebook page(s) and when liked back, they share something from the authors Facebook page.  (NOTE: You need a Twitter and Facebook page to qualify)
  • AUTHORSdB adds their authors to Google+, LinkedIn & Pinterest.
  • Author Awards acknowledge authors in a variety of ways for many different types of interaction.

GET LISTED. For FREE and through a quick registration process, you can have your name included in the Authors Database at AUTHORSdB.com. You will be able to 1. Create an account, 2. Add your bio, photos and book images, 3. Add all your social media contact information, 4. Add your 'Buy Here' links to Amazon, B&N, etc, and then they share for you.

It takes just a few minutes to extend your reach exponentially. List yourself as an Author 100% FREE and then reap the benefits the exposure from their automated promotions.

  2. Thanks for the article! I'd never heard of this site, but I think it could be very beneficial to authors if we help it grow.

  3. Love your blog, even though I'm not really into the romance genre. Excellent tips.

  4. Thanks, Nancy. I suppose (at least this feature) can fit any author needing to market themselves. :) Glad you stopped in.
