Promoting myself… or something along that lines.

Slowly but surely I’m making myself seem more professional and less like a newbie who has no idea what they’re doing. 

I’m currently watching the tracking info and awaiting my box of freshly printed business cards! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Now, I found that business cards for a novelist/ writer can be a touchy subject. Some people say Go for it! It’s a great little promotional tool that most writers over look…”

And then I find other articles that say it’s a “…waste of time and money…” ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ  I guess it really all depends on your outlook.

Well, I’ve decided to give it a go anyway. (Props for being spontaneous Jen๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ)
I look at it this way, I have one book currently published and a couple more on the way…and I need to get my name and stories out there more. Currently I’m not doing so hot in the publicity area (more like sucking terribly at something I know hardly anything about)… ๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜’. 

So for me, the business cards will serve as a friendly, not so pushy way, to say “Here, check out my website” or “Yes, I’m on instagram. Follow me if you’d like.” 

Or “Hey I know a great editing service… it’s linked on my website…” ๐Ÿ˜Š there’s so many ways to slip your name out there ๐Ÿ’š without forking it down someone’s throat. Lol 

I personal feel like I have ample oppurtunites to hand out a card. Especially with starting my new job, people are always needing my number or work email for one thing or another… so why not take the opportunity to drop info on my other job?  

Granted, I can’t just walk around promoting my books when I should be focusing on my other duties. But if the opportunity presents itself, I’m going to take it!  

Now to just buckle down on the editing and set more of these little story ideas free ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป
