18 months or so ago my wife (artist/illustrator) and I decided to switch careers from SEO/digital marketing based (I’ve worked in SEO marketing for 15+ years) to creating children’s picture books under the pen name M.D. Law. We’ve created around ten complete picture book manuscripts, some mock up picture book illustrations and set out to find a literary agent.
I switched my social media accounts (Facebook/Twitter etc…) to promote the new career path (lost a LOT of followers**) and set about building an author platform. Building a social media author platform was easy, finding a literary agent, not so much! To cut a short story even shorter, finding a needle in a haystack in a field of haystacks, with your hands tied behind your back would be significantly easier than finding a literary agent: the balance between author/agent/publisher is seriously messed up.
** In hindsight I should have registered new social media accounts for the author platform and kept my old accounts focused on SEO marketing.
Sooooo, that didn’t go to plan :-( Time to move on, we plan to publish via Kickstarter when we have a finished picture book.
Now that I’m over my mid-life crisis :-) time to move back into freelance SEO marketing : have to admit, I’ve missed the challenge of trying to increase Google traffic etc… to business sites.
Twitter Analytic Statistics
Couple of weeks ago I began switching my social media accounts back to SEO marketing and it’s resulted in a nice jump in Twitter engagement etc… time for Twitter analytics statistics…. for My Twitter Account.
All Twitter metrics are on the up.
Prior to switching back to SEO marketing my Tweet impressions were at a very low point of below 1,000 impressions a day. Two weeks after going back to SEO and posting a few promotional type Tweets it’s hitting 8,000 impressions a day.
Still a lot of work to do, but it’s definitely moving in the right direction.
