Good morning and welcome to Monday Blogs. Today, we will talk about how to be a professional author on social media.
The world is a very different place in recent years. No longer can people have an opinion without people screaming and shouting that they’re wrong. Make the wrong comment on your social media pages, even if you believe it’s the right stance, and you could soon find yourself losing sales and being ridiculed for being “stupid” and “out of touch with reality.” That’s right. Your opinion about hot topics can only be what your fans are, even if they are on opposite sides of the fence.
An author must stay neutral to sell their books. Yes, we have opinions. Yes, we literally have to tie up our fingers and bite our tongues when interacting with our friends and fans. We can’t afford to be “that author” who spoke up and everyone attacked because they were wrong.
Instead of falling prey to politically charged posts, look for kittens, recipes, and other funny posts to share with your opinion. This will get you more fans. Many people are getting tired of the negativity on social media. Be a maven of change—go positive!
