Dianne Dixon, CAPM®'s Experience

Founder

Twitticus Marketing/Book Promotions

January 2014Present (9 months) Online Only

As an author, I know how hard it is to get the word out even if you have a great publisher supporting you. For those who realize that the period at end of the last sentence in the manuscript isn't the end but the beginning of getting your book out there, I created Twitticus to help streamline my marketing system so that I can access book lovers all over who want to get to know a new author. I use targeted promotion plans as well as standalone advertising and my plan is to create a specialized site to help authors get the word out.
