fansEven if you have a small fanbase interact with them weekly.  Fans love authors that take the time to interact with them and if you do your fans will recommend you to other potential readers.  You can get really creative with this but here is a list of a few things you can do to “meet” with your fans weekly:

  • Hold a weekly Twitter chat.
  • Create a weekly video and post on your website and social media accounts.  Ask fans to comment so you can answer their questions.
  • Host a Google+ Hangout weekly.
  • Have a weekly chat on Facebook.  You can post the notice of the chat on your Facebook Fan Page and have fans comment.  You can reply to comments.  Make sure you setup a regular time to start and end the chat.
  • If you have local fans setup a MeetUp group to meet with fans locally.
