You’ve written a book or contributed a chapter yet your online author pages and profiles are unclaimed on sites that sell books or showcase books and authors. September is a great month to complete those profiles with a bio, links, and a photograph. Here are a few sites with author pages and profiles.
The importance of claiming your profile is like claiming real estate. With the exception of AALBC, the profiles and pages are free. Readers – faithful and potential – like seeing an author and reading about them. A really good photo and well-written bio (not too long) can make you attractive to people seeking to buy your book(s).
Here’s another important benefit: Your name will show links to those profiles in Google searches. Increase your ability to be found by completing these profiles.
One last thing. Update your Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, and Instagram bios and photos too. If you have other suggestions, please post them in the comments below.
