You don’t have to be an author to have a platform. Everyone from Miss America to political candidates have one, and if you’re in any kind of business, you should consider having one, too.
Below are the 4 important C’s for Growing Your Platform.
Information about you and your family
Information about your product and where it can be
Make sure your voice is recognized.
If you have a website or blog, post consistently.
Tell stories that relate back to your platform.
What is your commitment to your product? For me
this would be my commitment to my writing.
What is your commitment to your patrons or followers?
Grow your tribe of followers or people who believe
In your and your product.
Be a mentor. There’s always a new author, business
or someone who can benefit from your knowledge.
Finding influencers for your platform is a great way to get the word out about you and your product, which is part of why I do the blog. You are all my tribe and your interest and support of my books helps to influence others to read them!
Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday, and I look forward to hearing about your platform!
