It's never too early to start building your author platform and community - not to mention, agents and publishers take notice when an author has established a strong social media following! As writers ourselves, we have been involved in the industry for over ten years, we get it - this isn't just a book, it's your baby. You've taken great pains to ensure that every word projects the story you set out to tell. Which is why it's critically important that your social media reflects your author "brand," and works to connect you to your target audience. And we're here to coach you through it!
How coaching works: Whether you need help getting started with your social media strategy, or simply refocusing your current approach - we're here for you! We'll talk about your author goals, help you plan, and answer any questions you have about managing your own accounts.
Hit us up with an email letting us know you're interested in Social Media Coaching for Authors.
We'll get back to you with dates and times available to schedule your free 30 minute consultation. If you're local, we can meet in person, otherwise FaceTime, Skype, or a simple phone call will work.
During the initial consultation, we may suggest a Social Media Review* before booking your first coaching session.
When you book your first coaching session, we'll send our Social Media for Authors Packet via email for you to complete before the session. This packet includes our in-depth questionnaire, a Social Media Goals Worksheet, and a Things to Ask Andrea and Denise Sheet (it's super helpful to have a list of specific questions prepared ahead of time).
Subsequent sessions are generally scheduled in advance, on a weekly basis, or as often as you deem necessary.
Feel free to check out some of our own social media profiles!
Our in-depth questionnaire is an essential tool in helping us learn more about you, and will help us shape your strategy. It has been tailored to generate content ideas that will connect you, your writing, and your author journey to your social media audience and potential readers.
We see this as a partnership and communication is key. We'll go over the questionnaire as well as provide other tips that will help you share who you are as an author with your social media community. We'll discuss strategies that will help you create scroll-stopping content that generates buzz and entices readers.
Already on Social Media?*
If you currently have a presence on social media, we encourage you to start with a Social Media Review. Mama Media will conduct a thorough analysis of platform(s) you currently use. You’ll receive a detailed report addressing what’s working, as well as areas for improvement - specific to that platform - to enhance your author brand. This provides an essential roadmap of where you currently are with your social media and what steps are necessary to help you reach your social media marketing goals.
