Twitter: 1147 – switched profile
40 Days to Printer
99 Days to Book Launch – March 19, 2016
I made a change with my twitter account today – so the numbers will be quite different. I had a twitter account previously that was under my real name. Then I had the brilliant idea (not) to use my pen name for writing children’s book so that it would start building name recognition for my children’s book. Well, it just was too confusing. So today (Thursday) I went back to the old account, renamed it to @pattyproctor3 and off and running there.
I try some things and they work and sometimes they don’t.
Worked on Pinterest. Started listening to Beth Hayden’s teleclass on Pinterest for Authors but it was mostly for people who haven’t used that media much and I actually was doing it professionally for awhile so I got pretty knowledgeable with a lot of it. Always something new to learn but I just didn’t have the patience to listen to it.
Signed up for a free month with ViralTag (Pinterest scheduling software). Have used this before and it is a great tool. Not sure I can afford it but is a great tool for building a Pinterest presence. I may or may not continue with that. It costs $12 a month and combine that with $12 for ManageFlitter and there we are at $24 dollars a month for Social Media tools. So easy to add up! On the other hand it is very hard to get very far without the use of scheduling software. Will see if I can make some new friends on Pinterest.
One thing to note about the $12 offer with ViralTag and that is you really have to LOOK to find the $12 option. When you first get to the site they seem to offer only the starting price of $29 a month. But, if you look about you will find an option for Bloggers that only costs $12 a month. So if you are not in the Social Media business or a company with more than one user the Blogger Plan option works just fine.
Added two places to the book promotion list.
