How to Work With Bookstagrammers
I have worked with several publishers; some have been delightful and some have left me a little frustrated. For publishers, Bookstagram is a new and exciting thing, one I think they know little about, so here is what I think publishers should know about Bookstagrammers.
1. Every Bookstagrammer is different.
I think there is a belief that a Bookstagrammer is a Bookstagrammer and they all just love books. Not true. Often most of them will have a preferred genre and by looking at their pictures you can often get a feel for what they are. For example, I am not a fan of fantasy; I never review it, hardly ever read it or feature it on my account, yet I get countless emails from publishers telling me how their fantasy book will be perfect for me. This makes it clear to me that I am just on some random list and they haven’t even looked at my account, so I just ignore it. We all have our preferences, the books we love and don’t love, so please do a little bit of research. Also, look at what and how they post. I never post multiple posts because they don’t work so well on my account for example, so when I am asked to do them I won’t because I care about you getting the best results from your post.
