How Authors Develop Relationships With Their Fans

Writing a good book and doing online book promotions are not enough if authors want to develop relationship with fans. Nowadays,  fans expect an author to be out there, meeting and signing books in libraries and bookstores, responding to questions on blogging platforms and microblogs like Twitter, and keeping in touch on Facebook, and the author’s site.  Whether an author is shy or an extrovert, the author has to be sensitive to the need of the readers.  They are the ones who are paying for the book.

Writing a good book takes time. Even coming up with a proper title for a book takes a lot of mental gymnastics.  That’s is on top coming with a proper theme for the book, creating plots and subplots, etc.  If an author devotes that much resource in writing a good book, it is a no brainer that a lot needs also to be done to cultivate relationships with the readers of the book.  After all, the author is writing for them.  To cultivate that relationship, the author must make time for them.  Making time for the readers means meeting them both online and offline and make every effort to respond to their questions and concerns.

The Hidden Financial Benefits of Healthy Relationships

People don’t value relationships in financial terms.  However, healthy relationships, whether between friends or families, provide hidden financial benefits that a person might not even realize.  For example, let’s say you want to buy a new car.  A friend may tell you which dealership to go, and which salesman to talk to that will give you a good deal.  If you get there and save a couple of hundreds dollars on the car that you wanted,  you are excited and may even go to think your friend.  But the truth is if you stop and think about it, your friend just gave you a several hundred dollars indirectly.

Happy feelingThese types of benefits not only accrue from personal relationships but also from social groups. A perfect example of the group benefit is the fact that I came across a blog recently that recommended Treasury of the Plaza, one of the most beautiful St Augustine  Wedding Venues.  It is also close to the city of Jacksonville. Although I was not looking to get married,  you can imagine that there are other people who might have found that information very helpful.   My point is if they did not access the blog, they would not have known about this wedding location.  Therefore, if you think of a blog as a social network,  you must also cultivate the network because it also has hidden benefits.

A couple of years ago, I read an article about cultivating relationships. In that article they describe five ways to cultivate relationships and achieve that social wellness that most people aspire.  By sharing these five recommendations,  I hope that you will apply them in your life and achieve the social health that you desire.

The first recommendation is to be a listener not a talker.  That means you listen to what the other person is saying and let the person share with you how he or she feels.  The second  advice is to ask questions.  Asking questions about subjects that you and the other person disagree about will lead to a more substantive discussion and help clear the air by understanding the other person’s position.  The third recommendation is to develop a positive attitude and treat people the way you want to be treated.  If you have a bad attitude, that adversely affects your work, your relationships and everyone around you.  The four and the fifth recommendations involve sharing your thoughts and feelings about yourself and about the other person.  For example, complimenting someone on a job well done is sharing how you feel about the other person, while divulging certain fears you have about an issue is sharing your feelings about yourself.
