Knowledge Sharing – Building Your Presence through Guest Writing

Knowledge Sharing – Building Your Presence through Guest Writing 1024 576 Reader Views
Sheri Hoyte, Managing Editor

We all know there are multiple benefits of learning new things but one of the most important reasons is that sharpening your brain keeps you healthy – mentally and physically! During the pandemic I’ve had many opportunities to learn and grow – through webinars, reading (of course), and hands-on training while updating some of our processes and systems for Reader Views. I’m grateful for those who’ve shared their knowledge through these avenues. If you’ve ever spent hours, days, weeks, or even months learning something new, you know it can be daunting to say the least.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a “Best Practices” buddy, a writing and publishing fairy of sorts?

Good news is we do – each other! Authors can be the most beneficial resource for other authors, be it new authors looking to soak up every bit of information available, to those with a few books under their belts just looking to streamline some of their methods and stay updated in this ever-changing literary world.

To that end, we’ve opened up the editorial section in our newsletter and on our blog to guest writers with the goal of sharing our wealth of knowledge. If you have tips you’d like to share with your fellow authors, bloggers and readers, we’d love to feature your work. Not only will you be imparting your wisdom to your peers, you’ll also have the opportunity to promote your book/website in the process.

Why is this important? There are many, but two of the main reasons are:

  • Sales. The best reason of all is sales. Obviously, your end goal as authors is to sell more books. Exploring different avenues of “getting yourself out there” has the potential to increase your book sales.
  • Brand Awareness.  One way to increase awareness of your books is through link-building. Each time you guest post on another website/blog you create external links to your site, which is excellent for SEO.

One of our more recent guest posts is from Marika Flatt, CEO of PR By the Book. Marika shares her knowledge about How to Run a Virtual Book Tour. Next week, author J.B. Rivard will share some tips about what he learned writing outside his familiar genre. He turned his experience into an award-winning book!

Indie authors have more drive, perseverance, passion, and resilience than any other professional group and you inspire me daily. I am honored to work with you and I thank you for all you do to enrich the literary world. For more information about writing for Reader Views please email us at [email protected].

Sharing will enrich everyone with more knowledge.
