7 thoughts on “9 Ways Your Fans Can Support You

  1. Thanks, Joel and Sue — this is Super valuable information, and Sue, I’ve copied your blog to my desktop to see how I might be able to learn more about — simply — how it all works in terms of the way folks communicate on it.

    Love you guys.

  2. And now that I created a heartfelt vulnerable question…the universe changed it to…my work address…
    Looks like the answer to my depressing question about NOT getting fan interaction is to go back to my day job and shut up? *looks up at the universe and walks away from the keyboard muttering*

  3. After I so craftily set up and dutifully maintain my social media…and frequent hashtags that readers of the competition use…and only gain 13 FB fans in an entire year…and get less than the industry trend for opens on my newsletters in a scant following of 60 people (Many of which are family and not organic fans)…how do I manage to get past #1 on your list? It’s been 3yrs and I can’t make this my career so I don’t generate multiple titles yearly and at this rate I should just admit it’s a wasteful hobby keeping me off the streets and give up on anything other than more shouting into the void…sigh…

    1. Sue will have some tactical suggestions. I’ll share some philosophy.

      The phrase “admit it’s a wasteful hobby” doesn’t sound to me like how you really feel about your work. If it is, then by all means, stop.

      If that’s frustration speaking and you don’t really feel that way, let’s talk about why you’re a writer AND what you want from and for your fans.
