As the weather gets warmer (hey, I can hope right?) I start opening the windows and letting in the sunshine, which usually sheds light on all the places I’ve missed with my dust rag. Spring cleaning is a ritual many of us engage in with respect to our homes, but I got to thinking it might a good time to also evaluate the state of my online “homes” as well.
Today an author isn’t just responsible for writing a kickass book…we have to promote it everywhere and anywhere we can. Having a website is only a portion of what your online “house” should like. We have to be engaging, like we’re inviting someone over for a cup of coffee and a piece of cake…you’d clean first right?
So, how do you know if you all your social ducks are swimming in a row? If it’s been a while since you’ve checked your own links, you might be missing out on some media outlets that could be beneficial to you, or worse, you could be working harder and not smarter to get your brand across to the masses.
Fortunately for me, Nina Croft, fellow Heart-Shaped Glasses blogger and critique partner extraordinaire, recently came across a link to get a free website branding analysis! I jumped at the chance to have my sites evaluated…I need all the tips I can get.
I ended up getting a pretty high score for all my sites, but they did come back with some great advice that I plan to implement this week.
