"KBoards featured me" badges, for authors
« on: August 11, 2012, 02:41:21 PM »
Hello, KBoards authors, 

Here's some info on how you can use our KBoards blog, facebook page and twitter feeds to promote your work.

(Read more about our blog here) .

I want to use the blog posts, FB posts, and tweets to highlight our KB authors. So here is an offer:

1. Go to our facebook page, and "Like" it.

2. Follow us on twitter.

3. Sign up for our e-mail alerts (from the blog, right-side column).

4. We will periodically post KBoards Author Profiles to the blog. Send us an author profile (via email to admin@kboards.com), with some original information about you and your works, and we'll use that material in our blog (subject to our editing and our family-friendly guidelines). We'd prefer that these be "article" format - i.e. write a few paragraphs of original content about some aspect of yourself and your interests. We're looking for "compelling", so don't make it just a list of the books you've written or are working on. Our readers will thank you for the effort you put into writing an interesting profile/article!

Once your Author Profile runs in our blog, you can promote it by Sharing it on Facebook, tweeting about it etc.

5. Optionally, sign up for one of our author ads (see the yellow box at the very bottom of this page), and you can use the "KBoards Featured Me" badges on your author website, Facebook posts, tweets, etc.

The first badge is 256x256, the second one is 128x128. The HTML code to place on your website is below.

      

Large button:
Code: [Select]
<a href="http://blog.kboards.com"><img src="http://www.kboards.com/graphics/blog/kb-featured-me-button-v3-256x256.png"></a>
Small button:
Code: [Select]
<a href="http://blog.kboards.com"><img src="http://www.kboards.com/graphics/blog/kb-featured-me-button-v3-128x128.png"></a>
If you wish, you can change the URL in the code to the specific blog post link.



We hope you enjoy these new opportunities to connect with readers, and are looking forward to your feedback. Thanks for supporting us in this!

Update: we've received a great response to this, and are booking free author profiles into October. We'll accept additional author profiles until Aug 31, and then close it for a while after that.


Update: we're not accepting author profiles at this time. Thanks for the great response to it! We may open it up again in the future.
