What’s the first thing you do when you hear of an author’s name?
You Google them. We all do. Why? Because you want to see what they’ve written and who they are.
When I hear about an author it’s what I do. I head across to Google and search for them or I head to their social media pages and I click the link in their bio. I want to get onto their website as fast as possible because I want to see what other books have they written, who are they and what are their likes, what’s their personality like, what they actually look like.
I navigate through the pages looking for inspiration and consuming the content they have on their site. And the more I do this the more I feel closer to them, the more I want to know who they are, the more I want to be part their community.
So I go to their Facebook groups and Goodreads accounts, and Amazon pages and I follow them and join their communities and start posting in the groups and following those following them. And just like that I am a huge fan or probably a lowkey stalker.
Which ever way it all started with your author website.
