I’ve been a beta user for this emerging program, and now they’re ready to go live. There’s typically a subscription fee, but they’re letting people sign up free for the next week, so I recommend you take a look. The website is https://www.authorrise.com/.

How To Create Your Social Marketing Strategy (for Writers) by Chris Weber, CEO, AuthorRise.
AuthorRise basically helps you navigate social media marketing campaigns for your books, and helps you track your success. It boasts the following services:
It can help you set social media goals. It’s so hard to know what to tweet and when, and this program helps guide you through the process. You can start slow – one or two social media message per day – then work your way up.
You Can Create “flyers” – These are like free, mini-ads that you can create easily. Flyers eye-catching, visual messages you can create by adding a brief message, a link, and an image (like your book cover). These flyers are shareable/ tweetable and take just seconds to create. I am utterly techno-phobic, and it was easy for me to do. Here’s what one of mine looks like:
Helps you track book sales. You can easily track book sales with the program, and you even get an email notification when there is a spike in your Amazon ranking.
Helps you track the success and reach of all your social media outlets. I think this is one of the coolest aspects of AuthoRise. You can plainly see which social media messages work and which don’t. You can see how many people clicked on your website or Amazon page and what message sent them there. This is valuable information for any author to see which social media platforms work best and which messages garner the most attention.
So far, it seems like a useful service and the customer service help has been top-notch. Whenever I’ve had questions, Chris Weber himself usually answers back, and rather quickly. The folks at AuthorRise seem to really want to help indie writers, so it’s worth taking a look.
