I thought I would give you a head start on some August Observances that feature reader and book-centric themes to support your author branding and content ideas!
You can use these holidays as inspiration for your newsletter, blog, or social media posts.
As always, your posts should encourage your fans and followers to respond, chime in, share their feedback, insight, stories, etc. Don’t forget to work that angle: let them know you want to hear from them!
Also, remember: Your goal is to encourage engagement – never post flat content; be creative with how you pull others into the conversation and offer ways for them to engage easily.
You can do polls, giveaways, fan art contests, or anything else! This is an opportunity to get creative. Just remember to make it about your readers – not about you – and you’re guaranteed to see better engagement.
If you need additional support on translating these author branding and content ideas into actual posts, consider signing up for email coaching with me, and we’ll get personal! I’ll link the sign-up down below.
