Outskirts Press Kicks Off 2013 with Free Social Media Set-Up for Self-Publishing Authors in January

Social media can be a powerful tool in book marketing, but many don't know how to use it effectively. Outskirts Press is arming its self-publishing authors with this tool at no charge in January.

Denver, CO, January 04, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Social media is one of the most powerful, persuasive tools authors can use in their book marketing efforts; however, many are unsure how to put this modern medium to best use. Throughout the month of January, leading self-publishing service provider Outskirts Press is offering authors free social media set-up services – a savings of up to $499.

“Many self-published authors, particularly first-time published authors, find social media intimidating, or just don't fully understand how to tailor the medium to their marketing efforts,” said Kelly Schuknecht, VP of Outskirts Press. “It's a very specific skill, and it's not something that just comes naturally for everyone. Assistance from a team that understands both social media and book marketing is priceless.”

With a minimal amount of information from the author, Outskirts Press can launch authors into the social media landscape with the following services included in the Author Platform Set-Up Through Social Media package:

*Establishing author accounts on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and WordPress
*Setting up social media profiles on each platform
*Identifying and establishing relevant connections with users on each social media platform
*Assisting authors in building their unique online presence

Self-publishing authors can get more information about the service and order it at any time by visiting http://outskirtspress.com/p/social. Authors can purchase this service a la carte or get it free during the month of January with the purchase of the Diamond or Pearl publishing package and the valid promotion code.
