I love this recent blog post from Chris Hamilton-Emory of Salt Publishing. Whether you're a writer looking for advice on how to develop your online author presence, or an editor/proofreader working with independent self-publishing writers who are looking for some direction with regard to their marketing strategy, Chris's accessible and easy-to-implement advice about building discoverability is worth taking on board.
You can access it via the Salt Publishing blog (Salted) at Building Profile on the Web — a guide for authors.
Note: If you're a less experienced self-publisher, you might also like to download my Guidelines for New Authors. This free ebooklet will help you navigate some of the core issues in the publishing process and ensure you are working with the appropriate editorial consultant. The booklet also contains information on financial appraisal, marketing assessment, ebook formatting tools, distribution channels, taxation issues, and links to useful books, articles, blogs and knowledge centres for the independent author.
