Post Regularly To Facebook
It's Cliché, but what we're about to say is the truth... Facebook runs the world. So, the next time you want to tell Facebook what's on your mind, don't forget to check in with your fans on your Facebook Like Page(s), too. Whether we want to admit it or not, numbers are everything and potential prospects all around the world not only research book reviews, but also visit Author's Facebook Like Pages for activity and popularity on social media before they even make a book purchase. Be aware of what your readers are looking for and serve it to them on a silver platter. Your presence alone will make them feel more connected to you and give you more leads from interested prospects.
Make Yourself Accessible To Your Fans
Many sites like Facebook and Goodreads have a direct feature where members can contact you directly and ask questions. Make sure that your reply promptly to all inquiries. When your audience feels welcome, they visit your website more frequently, and check up on your progress on book releases, etc. often.
Despite what you've been told, the hard part isn't gaining fans, it's keeping them. If you don't keep the audience that you've already got entertained, it won't be long before they leave, unfollow and become uninterested. Your content has to be new and fresh every time! So, be thought conscious of everything that you market to your audience. Of course the objective is to sell, sell, sell, BUT give your audience a break sometimes. Every now and then, start a flash giveaway or

We know it's not an easy pill to swallow, but when you have an audience, every now and then you might have a few people who choose to unfollow or unsusbscribe to you for one reason or another. When this happens, here are a few things that you ca do to try and reel those customers back on your side:
1. Send Them A Friendly E-Mail - I know this might sound abrasive but statistics say that
Whether you know it or not, retaining your customers/readers is your job! When a reader or a fan unsubscribes from your mailing list, or even from a social media page, it is up to you find out why. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND: We are NOT telling you to go and hunt down every customer who loses interest in your brand. We are simply recommending that sending one last follow up email with a survey attached isn't unorthodox. Writing is your business, and the best people to gain feedback on your brand, is hearing from people who aren't even interested. Their words might be harsh, but if you take their critique and apply it correctly, you can greatly improve your business/brand.
