I am pleased to be promoting this authors post. Author Gunnar Lawrence has become a well known thriller author with his books “The Perfect Day” and “Fair Play”. I saw his post on Facebook just the other day, and was compelled to share it with all of you. I feel that what this Gunnar Lawrence has said is something that all independents need to hear, authors and otherwise.
If you are trying to build a social media presence, in any way, shape, or form, specifically for your business, then you will benefit from reading his words. Please read, share and enjoy.
Also remember to check out his books on Amazon in the links at the bottom. They are rated five stars, and are both compelling reads.
“I get asked this all the time about FB and Twitter. Are those posts and Retweets really worth it? Something to the effect of “I’m not seeing sales from it.” is usually mentioned. Here’s the thing, you don’t start harvesting fruit from the tree of a seed you planted yesterday. It takes time for the sprouting, rooting, growth to begin. It takes care, work and a little love too. So here’s the answer, will you see sales if you RT or Share on your social media site? No. You won’t.”
“You will see growth in numbers, grow a base of people who like and support you, and you will foster relationships with people you have never met face to face. You will get attention, make friends, help others RT their work. You will laugh, you will cry, you will be happy and you will be angry. From that churning of time and effort, you will see that growth, that growth will generate ideas, fans, street teams, promotions and reviews. Then, and only then will you be able to see a harvest begin.”
