Are you maximizing your presence on Goodreads?
Goodreads offers many opportunities for authors to reach new readers. One overlooked method is using video content. If you’re recognized as a Goodreads author or librarian, you can upload videos, such as book trailers, interviews, readings, video blogs and more.

Goodreads includes step by step instructions. To access, simply log into Goodreads and visit your author profile page. Note: you must be recognized as a Goodreads author (your profile page will say Goodreads author profile in the upper right corner of your bio). From your profile page, scroll down and look in the left column under your profile photo for the Videos section. Click Add New. You may be taken to a page showing all video content you’ve already loaded (which may be blank). Click Add One Now. Instructions will appear on the right sidebar of the Add Video page.
Video is a great way of reaching audiences who are using mobile apps on phones and tablets. Just as a picture is worth a thousand words, a good video can make an impact.
