Home   Blog Challenges   A To Z Challenge – C Is For Contact Me

You’d be surprised how many writers don’t have a contact me page or link on their website. You are missing out on good promotion opportunities because there is no way to contact you. Always include a way for readers, media and others to contact you.

Tip

I suggested you have two contact links, one for your readers and one for media/others. When you see these messages you will know exactly who they are from.

How to use for promotion

Include a contact form or email link on your site. Readers can send you a message through your contact form or a magazine can contact you for an interview.

  1. Great advice, thank you! We have both on our blog, http://www.thechinesequest.com too. I’m not having a lot of success getting people to Subscribe though. Do you have any suggestions?

  2. For the longest time, I was afraid to have a contact me form on my blog, because I’d gotten some abusive and weird e-mails back in the days of my old Angelfire site. Even though I almost never post about hot-button and potentially polarising issues on my blog, I still didn’t want trouble. I finally put up a contact me form awhile ago, and to date have only gotten one abusive e-mail, from some misogynistic who thought it was okay to personally attack my appearance (since I’m not thin), my real name, my hair (which is no longer long), my alleged lack of a man, and a bunch of other things that just came out of nowhere. All because he felt I bashed his child’s name, when I really just mentioned in passing that that name (Caden) is a modern trend and that I don’t like predated naming trends in books. I blocked him and reported him to his e-mail provider.

  3. Mel,

    I think to get people to subscribe, you have to offer them the content they want to read. We get so much mail, that sometimes its easier to stop by vs subscribing.

    Check your visitor stats. I get worried if no one is stopping by vs subscribing. If you have a good deal of viewers, the subscribers will happen.

  4. Carrie-Anne,

    I’m sorry you had such a horrible time with your contact link. As a promoter of books, I think writers need one on their pages. Its hard to get in touch with people if you don’t know how to reach them.

  5. Contact details… a simple necessity that is often overlooked!
