Understanding SOOP’s Fan Base Building Model

Something Or Other Publishing has developed a unique Fan Base Building Model that benefits our writers in their goal to build their group of fans and close supporters from the start. 

Our Voting Program is an interactive component of our Author-Drive Publishing Model to create more emphatic and authentic connections with prospective readers by collecting votes, representing a sign of interest and curiosity to learn more about your stories in development. Authors can benefit from this program to collect supporters, measure their expectations, and set goals based on their performance.

Getting Started

It’s easy to generate attention, but the tricky part is keeping the interest. 

Building a fan base is something that every author needs to do before they even get started writing. It will help you publish your book and generate the buzz you want simply by having a group of engaged readers who support your work along your journey. 

Turning interest into engagement is challenging but achievable with engaging content and the right platform.

Content 

Creating a fan base is about giving your most loyal supporters a reason to stay connected.

Content creation is the initial step to displaying your expertise. Sharing your work will help you generate buzz about your stories and writing career, which can help you build momentum and gather support as you prepare for the publication of your book.

Here are some topics to consider for your content: 

  1. Writing Samples/ Excerpts
  2. Book Recommendations
  3. Bold Takes
  4. Daily Activities
  5. News Opinion Columns

Platform 

Emerging writers need to start with a center stage to showcase their writing skills constantly.

Your platform is crucial to formally present your stories and deliver an experience to prospective readers that can get them closer to you. Once your readership grows, you can consider setting up a monthly newsletter or even a Youtube Channel to keep your most loyal supporters engaged.

Consider the following options to get started:

  1. WordPress
  2. Blogger 
  3. Twitter
  4. Instagram
  5. Facebook

Once you submit your Book or Short Story Idea, make sure to: 

  • Nail your Story Idea Description: Sell your story idea like it’s already a best-selling book! Nailing your story’s description is one of the things that can determine your performance in our voting program. Show prospective readers and supporters that you know how to write and win their hearts by writing a compelling description when you submit a story to our platform. In addition, adding a cover image to better illustrate your vision can increase your chances of success in generating interest.
  • Identify your Niche Audience: Knowing what niche audience you are targeting is fundamental. Identify your target audience and plan a strategy to reach your desired group of readers. Studying the behavior of your wanted readers will give you an overview of the things you can leverage and the areas you need to improve.
  • Improve your Online Presence: One of the most significant assets in today’s publishing world is your presence on the internet. Having a clear and popular meeting point with your followers allows you to create a link between yourself and your readers. You can create an engaging community around you by taking advantage of our voting tool. 
  • Be Authentic: Your narrative and writing style will set you apart. There are thousands of writers out creating valuable content for different audiences, but authenticity is the key factor in going from writer to published author. The common denominator is that you don’t take risks and always stick to generic formulas. At SOOP, we are open to writing freedom where our writers can exploit their full potential and deliver a work of art to the public. Feel free to dare and take your stories to the next level!
