Many self-published authors, particularly first-time published authors, find social media intimidating, or just don't fully understand how to tailor the medium to their marketing efforts.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) January 07, 2013

Social media is one of the most powerful, persuasive tools authors can use in their book marketing efforts; however, many are unsure how to put this modern medium to best use. Throughout the month of January, leading self-publishing service provider Outskirts Press is offering authors free social media set-up services – a savings of up to $499.

“Many self-published authors, particularly first-time published authors, find social media intimidating, or just don't fully understand how to tailor the medium to their marketing efforts,” said Kelly Schuknecht, VP of Outskirts Press. “It's a very specific skill, and it's not something that just comes naturally for everyone. Assistance from a team that understands both social media and book marketing is priceless.”

With a minimal amount of information from the author, Outskirts Press can launch authors into the social media landscape with the following services included in the Author Platform Set-Up Through Social Media package:

*Establishing author accounts on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and WordPress
*Setting up social media profiles on each platform
*Identifying and establishing relevant connections with users on each social media platform
*Assisting authors in building their unique online presence

Self-publishing authors can get more information about the service and order it at any time by visiting http://outskirtspress.com/p/social. Authors can purchase this service a la carte or get it free during the month of January with the purchase of the Diamond or Pearl publishing package and the valid promotion code.
