Powerful Self-publishing Tool is Free!

Use Storify to tell a more robust story

I know – you don’t need any more social media tools.

You’ve kind of figured out how to pound a few apps into a messaging arsenal for your book, and there’s no time (or patience) for anything else.

I suggest you take a breath and consider Storify.

Sign up for a free account at Storify.com, and you suddenly have a massive army of people producing content that you can literally pull into stories you create.

Example: I’m a self-published author headed for BookExpo America in New York next week. I want to share what I learn with other Indies as I’m promoting my novels, Bella and Bootlicker (available later this summer).

So I used Storify to pull content from Twitter, Facebook, my own blog and several other sources into one story that I called, “BookExpo America – Piacente’s Picks from the Apple.”

I will update the piece as I find new content to add. That includes photos and videos, by the way.

The curated story lives on Storify. To let folks know how to find it, I fired the link out in tweets, on Facebook, in emails and in blog posts.

This is a great tool. Give it a shot. Here’s my first Storify:

Have you tried this app or anything similar, and what was your experience?

    Haven’t tried it yet, but it looks pretty interesting. I’m always looking for new content ideas. Will have to check it out. Thanks.

    My first post has gotten a lot of responses, Mark. Another thing I like is that you can update the same post without changing the URL. Thanks for your comment!
