I've finally joined the hundreds of authors who have their own street team. I know, it took me long enough.
WHAT'S A STREET TEAM:
A street team is a group of fans who help an author out by sharing her posts, leaving reviews on her books, and other promotional things that are called "missions". Fans get "points" for completing these missions. The points are then used to win mmonthly giveaways or earn cool swag items only available to street team members.
WHAT KINDS OF PROMOTIONAL THINGS DO YOU MEAN?
I'm not big on handing out flyers (though if you want to I won't stop you!), so mainly leaving reviews, commenting on guest posts, joining fun events, or sharing links is about all I'll ask of you. (Of course, if you think of other cool things I'm all ears!).
WHAT KIND OF PRIZES CAN MEMBERS WIN?
April's prize will be a grab bag of some random fun things. Future prizes will be to name a character, bookmarks, autographed paperbacks, or advanced copies of new books.
I know I'm not the only one who has cool links to share. I have fans and friends who are entrepreneurs, crafters, artists, writers, and any number of awesome things. So I don't just want to share MY links, but YOURS too! Have a promotion of your own going on? Share the link on the street team page and members will EARN POINTS FOR SHARING YOUR LINKS TOO!
HOW TO MAKE SURE YOU GET CREDIT:
Sometimes you might share a post from my personal page, or author page, before I post it in the street team. If that happens, please comment "shared" on the post so I know you shared it. If you share it from the page Facebook will tell me you did. If the mission is something else (for instance leaving a comment on a blog), then be sure to use the same name you use on Facebook - or just let me know - and I will count it.
POINTS GET TOTALED...
I'll try to total points every Monday. Winners will be announced at the end of each month.
Feel free to chat about books, vampires, or anything! I want this to be a fun group. We will also have themed events such as Writer Wednesday - a writers' share night where ANYONE who writes ANYTHING can share. Participants earn points for participation.
WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO?
