Write Me A Murder are looking forward to getting our name out there more in 2012. It’s off to a good start. It looks as if the magazine article we were interviewed for nearly a year ago will finally be going into print in the next couple of months. We have to admit that our initial excitement in the aftermath of the interview (and photo shoot!) waned somewhat when we realised that it wasn’t going to appear in the first couple of issues after the interview. We exchanged emails with both the journalist and the editor of the magazine and initially it wasn’t looking too hopeful. Understandably, space is at a premium in these publications but, fingers crossed, by March it should be in print. Keep an eye on Sussex Life!
On another note, we’ve been social networking like demons. Business and SEO advice these days is that social networking sites are a must so we have been tweeting and Facebooking rather a lot in the last week or so. We can’t deny that it seems to be working! We’re following lots of new and interesting people and groups, and they’re following us back. Best of all, a local writers’ group has, as a result of our Twitter page and this very website, asked us to run a murder mystery writing workshop for their group sometimes this year. All very exciting.
As far as “standard” advertising is concerned, until now we’ve relied on regular adverts on various free listings sites (Vivastreet, Gumtree etc) but to be honest, we really don’t see much of a result from them although we’ll keep them up for now. Our Google hits are rocketing though, especially since the relaunch of the website in January.
All in all, 2012 is looking busy, fun and dead exciting!
