Books on using Twitter are many and varied in quality and usefulness. As an author myself, my view of the role of Twitter was it’s a great tool to schmoose the publishing industry but of little use for selling books. Ian Sutherland has changed my mind. ‘Advanced Twitter Strategies …’ was written by Ian from hard won experience, and the proof is in the number of twitter followers he has, and in his book sales rank available for anyone to see on Amazon. Okay, he is not number one but he is respectable placed given the millions of fiction books out there. It was after checking out these figures and noting his claim ‘I’ve struck gold!’ I decided to read and follow Ian’s techniques to the letter. Although at present I cannot report the same level of success (Ian went from 1,500 followers gained over four year period to plus 60,000 in a few months), it’s early days yet but already I’ve seen a marked improvement in the number of Twitter followers, I’ve divested myself on many laggards because of better targeting of whom I follow / unfollow, and I’ve seen a significant increase in the number of ‘lists’ I’ve been added to. What is more, Ian is ethical in his method – SHARP – is his byword (an acronym) which sums up his approach. This book is not for the fainted hearted as you need a good basic understanding of and previous skills in using Twitter before adopting his techniques. Also it’s not a book to read in a few minutes – I suggest a reasonably detailed first read taking notes as you go, and then opening the book on your Kindle / Tablet alongside you PC screen so you can work through the setting up and configuration of the tools he recommends and illustrates in the text. Once you’ve mastered the tools Ian gives a detailed plan of how to manage your Twitter account in 15 minutes per day freeing yourself up to do what fiction writers are supposed to be doing – creating jaw dropping stories. I’m sold on this book, and very happy to give it five stars and to recommend it to all serious Twitter users be they authors or not.

    I'd been marketing my novel, The Polygamist, over Twitter for a few months. I had a growing follower base and had discovered a few (of the many) tools offered to people using social media to market their books. However, by the start of 2017 I had reached only circa 1,100 followers. Things were moving too slowly. A marketing professional recommended Ian Sutherland's Advanced Twitter Strategy for Authors.

I had a growing follower base and had discovered a few (of the many) tools offered to people using social media to market their books. However, by the start of 2017 I had reached only circa 1,100 followers. Things were moving too slowly. A marketing professional recommended Ian Sutherland's Advanced Twitter Strategy for Authors. What Ian gives you is a complete process to follow plus very specific recommendations on which tools to use. I placed my faith in the book, and subscribed to all the software products as recommended, also following Ian's method faithfully. I quickly got the hang of the various tools and the method and have been delighted with the results. Within just three months I have acquired 10,000 more followers than I had.The method also leaves me time to interact with my followers which I enjoy. I am therefore a BIG fan of this book. I have deducted one star from the five I would have awarded for the following reasons: (a) the book is badly in need of an update - some out-of-date terminology left me confused or wasted time while I was trying to learn - plus the user interfaces and features of the tools change constantly, leaving the book far behind (b) the issue of RSS feed sources publishing multiple duplicates - for which I'm yet to find a decent solution - is not discussed (c) there are various issues with the products for which you need to develop workarounds eg if your PC's response times are slow then clicking multiple times can buffer your 'add followers' resulting in your exceeding Twitter's 10% limit. Having said all that - I don't expect a book of this sort to address every question an amateur user like myself may come up with. Overall, great job, Ian, and thank you so much for this great boost to my social marketing activities! UPDATE (Dec 2019) - Things move so fast in the social media world that this book is now hopelessly out of date - changes in the rules have rendered most of the tools it recommends of far less use. I have therefore had to downgrade my rating as I feel I can no longer recommend this book.

    Twitter is one of the major social networks, and with approximately eleventy-billion tweets sent daily (many of them containing #GoT memes and spoilers), it’s one authors need to know about. If you do know about Twitter and want to learn to leverage the power of the beast, read on. If, like Jon Snow, you know nothing, you would be better reading a beginner guide first—I recommend Belinda Pollard’s blog posts, or Twitter for Writers by Rayne Hall. Advanced Twitter Strategies is what is says in the Twitter is one of the major social networks, and with approximately eleventy-billion tweets sent daily (many of them containing #GoT memes and spoilers), it’s one authors need to know about. If you do know about Twitter and want to learn to leverage the power of the beast, read on. If, like Jon Snow, you know nothing, you would be better reading a beginner guide first—I recommend Belinda Pollard’s blog posts, or Twitter for Writers by Rayne Hall. Advanced Twitter Strategies is what is says in the title: advanced strategies to build a substantial Twitter following in a short time by following Sutherland’s SHARP principles and using his recommended tools. He has personally built a following of over 30,000 tweeps in less than six months, and achieves this in 15 minutes a day. That’s impressive: I’m not interested in “advice” from people with fewer Twitter followers than I have. Sutherland uses a range of tools to automate as much as possible within Twitter’s rigid anti-spam guidelines, and he takes the reader through each of these tools in detail: how to set up an initial account, which features to use and how to use them, and how to spend your 15 minutes per day. Down to the second. And it looks achievable … Yes, there is a catch: the system will take more than 15 minutes to set up initially, and Sutherland uses the paid versions of some services. These services have a combined cost of $14.75 per week at current prices, so this isn’t a strategy you will necessarily want to follow if you don’t actually have something to sell. Like a book. He also points out the importance of having the basics covered with your book: excellent content, good cover, and good reviews. (What’s the saying? Excellent marketing will only make a bad book fail faster.) Given there is a cost in implementing Sutherland’s method, you’ll want to monitor your ROI: are you selling enough additional books to justify the expense? (Alternatively, how much time will these tactics save you that you can then spend on writing your next book? I’ve heard writers complain that marketing takes *hours* each day. Does it? Or are they procrastinating?) One thing would have made the book more helpful: I would have liked him to explain why he chose a particular service provider over the other companies offering a similar service. What are the pros and cons of SocialOomph vs Buffer as a scheduling service? Of Tweepi vs. JustUnfollow (now called CrowdFire) to manage following and unfollowing? I use Buffer and CrowdFire. Should I change? Why? I would add one further caution: social media does not necessarily sell books. Yes, I bought this book based on a tweet from the author, but that is because I have seen his name in my Twitter stream and recognised him as an author who offers good content (in his case, #twittertips, following his own SHARP principles) rather than an author who fills my feed with self-promotion. People, Spam® is a food, not a marketing strategy. While I’ve found it easy to connect with writers on Twitter, I haven’t found it so easy to find readers, especially readers of Christian fiction (readers of book marketing and writing craft books? I’ve found thousands of them). So if your target reader is busy on Pinterest looking at inspirational quotes, craft ideas or wedding dresses … this won’t help. But if your target reader is active on Twitter and connecting with people through Twitter is part of your marketing plan, then I recommend this book. I believe it does what it says on the tin.

    This book was published in 2015, and I was a little bit dubious whether it will be useful right now in the fast-paced world of Twitter. My doubts were laid to rest as most of the information proved to be very relevant and valuable. If you look, you will find hundreds of books on social media marketing, and a huge portion is dedicated to author marketing. Of all the books, I've picked up, none have been very helpful, they stick to mainly rehashing the generic, basic set up information.

This is why I found this book particularly helpful, as it imparts a complete strategy on how to use Twitter to promote your books. I found the tools described to be useful, although some details are a bit outdated. If you know the basics of Twitter and are looking for a good strategy to test, then I recommend this book.

As a result of reading this book I'm now using bitly to track links.

    This is one of those books that I picked up without much thought and would have returned if I'd gotten around to it within the return window on Amazon, but I didn't, so I thought what the heck, I'll compare it to Twitter for Writers, which I had read in the meantime. Reading these two books back-to-back gave me some insight into the different ways authors use twitter for self-promotion, but I was heartily sick of it all by the time I got into this book.

Reading these two books back-to-back gave me some insight into the different ways authors use twitter for self-promotion, but I was heartily sick of it all by the time I got into this book. Rayne Hall starts her book with the premise that social media is really about socializing, but Ian Sutherland here doesn't get around to that point until the end, almost as an afterthought. The whole approach of bulk-adding followers and mostly automated posting rubbed me a bit the wrong way. That said, this book does deliver on its promise. I just don't see how you can post multiple times per hour almost around the clock and not come across as spammy. It would feel like spam to me. If I look at someone's twitter feed and they're not explicitly just an advertiser and they have 10 posts in the last 10 minutes, it's a turn-off. I will probably use some of the tools and strategies mentioned in this book, so it did have some value to me, but I'm leaning towards a much less intensive version Rayne Hall's approach, which is more authentic.

Already, I have put 80% of what the author suggests into practice, and already I am reaping tremendous results. I now enjoy Twitter more than Facebook. As everyone knows, enjoying a task is critical to getting it done. Furthermore, along the way, I encountered a bit of a snag with one of the suggested tools. I emailed the author to ask him if he had any suggestions for what went amiss. He emailed me back straight away and even went so far as to look at my Twitter feed to analyze my problem. This book is brilliant. This author is brilliant. If you are an author, or even just someone who needs to use Twitter to market a product or a business, this book should be always at your fingertips.

    Does what it says You can take the information in this book as deep as you want. I found many take-aways from it that have already enhanced my Twitter experience. There are some tools he suggests that cost money, but a search on the internet found many free programs that will accomplish many of the same tasks. All in all a wealth of information that is well worth getting your hands on.

    This book works! I have implemented half of the suggestions so far and doubled my twitter followers in about a week! You do need to purchase several tools, or use their free versions with somewhat less functionality than Ian recommends, and you must have a working understanding of twitter to begin with. If you understand those two things and you want to move from having a toe in the water of Twitter to diving in, this book is perfect.

    Great Tips! This book offers excellent tips! But in order to achieve most of it to full impact, you have to pay nearly $15 a week for subscriptions to specific apps. It would have been nice knowing this up front. You can still achieve much of what this book purports to claim, but not without greater efforts quite streamlined by the suggested apps.
