|Pegg demonstrated how she uses Hootsuite to keep her tweets trending.|
In case you missed it, here are a few tips that Pegg gave us. Here are her top four suggestions for developing a real author platform:
- Work to develop it over time - this can't happen overnight
- Make "friends" - don't go looking for sycophants
- Aim to develop devoted followers - you want a long-term relationship with readers who want more of your stories
- Create a platform that works - if you don't like it, nobody else will either
For our first northern Michigan meeting, we had a great turnout. We also welcomed three new members! It was great having Christine Johnson, Brenda Garver, and Ron Estrada (who, we didn't realize, wasn't technically a member until this past weekend - the technicality has been fixed).
|Ron, Brend, Christine, Karin, Linda, Pegg, and Joy - fun times in Gaylord.|
Thanks to everyone who made the drive to Gaylord, and we're looking forward to meeting again online this winter. The 2015 workshop schedule is almost set, and we'll announce it as soon as we can.
