Building a Fan Base Before You Publish

Building a fan base is something that an author needs to do before you even get started writing. It will help you publish your book and generate the buzz you want. 

It’s easy to generate attention, but the tricky part is keeping the interest. That is where all the hard work comes in. Gaining traction may make you feel like you are accomplishing something; however, the hard reality is that you won’t get anywhere if you aren’t hitting your target audience. 

Turning attraction into action is challenging but achievable with the right platform and engaging content

For instance, using a host site and creating a website can provide your writings a center stage to shine consistently and help you stand out online. If your readership grows, you can consider setting up a newsletter to give readers an exclusive channel to be informed about you. You can incentivize sign-ups by offering something in return like insights on your upcoming projects or any new stories under work. 

Second, you want to start giving your audience little pieces of your writing. Short stories, poems, and excerpts or chapters from your book are some writing selections you may wish to leverage to reward loyal supporters and prospective readers. Posting your work will help you generate a buzz about your work and your next steps.

In conclusion, posting about your endeavors and creating a place for your fans to learn about you are two key bases to start building your fan base. Creating a fan base is about giving your audience a reason to stay connected.

Be patient and consistent! You’ll get there!
