I would first like to introduce myself. My name is Gladys #NerdGirlOfficial and I wanted to share our 6 free services and 1 paid service with you. As an independent/hybrid author, we realize your budget is tight and we at Nerd Girl Official want to help you get to your goals. We have a core staff of 8 people and 25 reviewers/street team members.
Here are our links for you to pursue at your leisure:
Nerd Girl has a few ways we can help get your name and releases out to our 11,238 fans on FB and 4,699 followers on twitter. (We also have a separate twitter for the erotica and romantica fans @SeXXXyNerdGirl with 1,391 followers) We have expanded our social media reach to tumblr, pinterest and google + recently. We eventually would like to have a YouTube channel as well. NGO is constantly growing and improving and we would love for you to grow with us!
AGAIN, the following top 6 Nerd Girl Official's services are free (Advertising space is CHEAP)! Yes you heard me correctly. We are here for you the author and for our/your fans/future fans, the readers!!! Our current services go something like this...
NGO does something a little different then most and we call it #RandomSwagging!!! Currently we have 3 street team members who are designated #RandomSwaggers and of course the Big 3, (Melanie, #NerdGirlVamp, Cianna #NerdGirlSunshine and myself Gladys #NerdGirlOfficial.) All of us blindly go to different NGO blog posts, NGO Twitter tweets or FB fanpage posts and find a fan who comments and surprises them with author provided swag. It's totally up to the author what they send to us, but they will be "Nerded" up a bunch! When they send the swag to one of the big 3, we post a picture on the weekends, tag you via Twitter and FB and then ask the #NerdGirlHerd to post on your wall. When one of the swaggers receive your swag, when we random swag your (well) swag and when we swag it... swag swag swag... If you swag what I mean?? We do this to create fan interaction with us as a fan page and with you as an author. Typically we drive a good amount of traffic to your page on the weekends.
LATELY, I have been getting "what do you consider swag kinda questions?". Well we have had authors give us 10 ebooks to dispense, of course we do NOT hold on to your copy written property. We collect the fan's email address and then send them to you so you can give them to your new fan and interact with them as well. Others have sent signed or unsigned mini-posters, rack cards, bookmarks, jewelry and signed pictures. If you have any #RandomSwagging questions please feel free to respond to this message or email NerdGirlOfficial@Gmail.com Attention #RandomSwagging/Gladys
