How to succeed as an author – tips by self published authors

Today on The Segilola Salami Show, I recap tips by previous guest authors on the show on how to succeed as an author.

To summarise:
Do not be afraid to ask for reviews
Make sure your ebook is available on Amazon
Use social media to be social, have conversations with people
Make your twitter posts go viral with CoPromote
Consider making your book available in other formats, not just ebooks
Monetise your website as an additional source of passive income
Get brand representatives; build a street team
Make sure your writing style is suitable for your book and audience
Decide for yourself if listing your book exclusively on Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited programme is suitable for you

The Segilola Salami show is hosted by Segilola Salami who is also an author and a self publishing strategist. She provides one to one support to aspiring authors to help them self publish their own books and make a success of it. Her latest book is called Yetunde: An Ode to My Mother. Part of the proceeds from the sales of this book goes towards helping UK Charity Jigsaw4u.

The aim of the show is to be entertaining but educative as we see guests share their experience on self publishing in a virtual cafe.

The show is published weekly on Tuesdays at 9am GMT London. Subscribe to the show now to listen to this and other episodes.
