Today has been a perfect example of why I’ve kept this website up and running for 13 years now.
John Scalzi once said (I’m quoting from memory, so it might not be word for word) — “Social media platforms come and go… but your website? That’ll be around long after.”
Don’t get me wrong. Facebook, Instagram, and other social media platforms are excellent ways to keep up with your readers. However, if you have all your eggs in one basket, what happens to your eggs when said basket is suddenly unavailable? Or worse still, what happens when said platforms decide you have violated one of their rules (ever changing they may be) and ban you from your marketing platform? I know Larry Correia took a hit when Facebook began banning him a few years ago. Fortunately, there are other platforms for him and he’s had Monster Hunter Nation running for almost as long as I’ve had this site.
I’ve told new authors this over the years. Don’t rely on just one source of marketing for your books. Branch out. Keep that website regularly (or semi-regularly) updated.
Today’s message was brought to you by the letter “W”. Because we all know “WRAITHKIN” starts with “W”
