Twitter: Could Indie Publishing Survive without It?

Format: Video with Ian Sutherland

Twitter provides a real support service for indie authors.

It is also among the most challenging tools a writer can use. It’s apparently simple, but requires considerable planning to get the most out of it.

The key areas I will be discussing :

1. How the Twitter feed is changing and how writers can respond

2. #Imaginative uses for Twitter

3. How Twitter is the link that can bind all the other platforms

4. How to pursue viral campaigns with Twitter

Indies and Twitter are locked in a beneficial embrace. This session will help you get the most from your time there.
