Welcome to Day 3. If you’ve been playing along, by now you’ve posted a blog post about your new book, and set up or updated your Twitter account. Each of these things should have taken you only about 5 minutes. That’s why this series is called 5 Minute Promo. If you are new to the series, feel free to take minutes to catch up. I’ll wait here <grins>.
Okay, so time for today’s five minute promo task. You ready? Good
5 Minute Promo #3
Head over to Instagram and set up an account. You can do this on your desktop or laptop, but will find it just as easy to use a phone or tablet – and to download the app. That’s because Instagram is designed for phones and so works best there. Not sure what to do? There’s a quick help guide here, which will guide you step by step through the process. Once you’re set up, feel free to follow me @sallymurphyauthor and drop me a line so I can follow you back. All of this should take you less than five minutes.
If you already have an Instagram account, use the five minutes to check that your profile picture, bio and account details are up to date, and of course to post a picture or like the pictures of others.
Not sure what to post? Here’s a recent photo that I posted:
You can see I took an opportunity to show off my new book (have I mentioned before how much I love the cover? ) as well as the new earrings I’d bought to celebrate its release.
See you tomorrow for Day 4. In the meantime, if you’re enjoying these tips, or have any questions or comments, feel free to comment here and I’ll get back to you.
