New York, NY (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
Online print and eBook publisher ExpertSubjects.com has released a tutorial podcast and article illustrating how writers can develop their platforms in the ever-changing publishing arena. The podcast and accompanying article are now available at http://expertsubjects.com/weeklyarticles/2012/06/07/developing-your-platform/.
A platform is a way for a writer or author to make him or herself known, and to reach as far as possible for potential readers, editors, publishers and agents. For writers to market not only their work, but themselves as a brand, ExpertSubjects.com advises writers to create personal websites, with excerpts of their writing, personal bios, photos and perhaps podcasts of their work being read. The online publisher recommends that writers and authors develop their own idea about who their audience is. Once that is established, social media tools such as Linkedin, Facebook, Google+ and Twitter are immensely valuable in creating a strong internet presence.
ExpertSubjects.com is a trusted Internet resource for self-publishing authors, writers and educators. The site offers a wide variety of services to connect writers to prospective audiences, including editing, book cover design, formatting and distribution to e-readers and marketing. ExpertSubjects.com will soon also expand its services to include website design, book interior design, formatting and typesetting.
