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?
