BookRix Gets (Even More) Social
As our loyal members know, BookRix is all about community – our groups and forums are a vital part of our site. We also know that there’s a whole big social world out there that we’ve just been dabbling in. We know it’s a great way to extend our community, as well as help our authors increase their visibility.
Allow me to introduce myself…I’m Scott Allen, the new Social Media Director for BookRix.com. I’ve been in social media since long before it was even called that. I’ve written a couple of books on the topic and been a contributor to a dozen or so more. I’ve worked with a major publisher, a boutique publisher and self-publishing. I’ve also been a professional writer for the past seven years for sites including About.com, FastCompany.com, Business.com and American Express OPEN Forum. I’ll be overseeing BookRix’s social media presence, and also helping you learn more about how you can develop, publish and promote your books online.
To get started connecting with us outside our little walled garden, you can:

- Share writing or marketing tips for the BookRix blog by filling out this form
Also, watch this space for additional cool audio & video content, coming soon.
If you’d like to learn more about social media, I invite you to check out my first book, The Virtual Handshake: Opening Doors and Closing Deals Online, which, of course, is available on BookRix. It was published in 2005, so you won’t see much about Twitter or Facebook in there, but I think you’ll find it an invaluable resource for learning about how to promote your book or your business on the social web.
And if you have any ideas or suggestions on content you’d like to see, or places you’d like to see us, leave a comment below or contact me directly and let us know.
