I’m really excited to have AJ Wilcox of B2Linked.com with us today. AJ is the go-to guy to learn all about LinkedIn and how to use it as a lead-generation tool for anyone. I reached out to find out more about how authors can use it.
LinkedIn is a channel most authors either don’t use or think they don’t need. AJ dispels that notion with these two short videos recorded JUST for #NaNoProMo (what a cool dude), and explains how you can put it to work for you in a few easy steps!
To learn more from AJ, take a look at his blog as well.
Pro Tip: If you are promoting a book or event, put that on your profile during the promotion! (See what I did for #NaNoProMo on my LinkedIn profile as an example).

Big props to AJ for creating this special ‘class’ just for #NaNoProMo! I learned a lot and hope you do, too.
From Chris Syme, host of Smarty Pants Book Marketing Podcast and the queen of author marketing—I learn SO much from this brilliant lady. She offers several free online classes (and her premium classes are affordable and well worth the $$).
Chris has graciously donated four signed books to give away: two copies of each, The Newbie’s Guide To Sell More Books With Less Marketing and Sell More Books with Less Social Media.
