Successful businesses over the last few centuries can tell you how important social networking. Even politicians can attest to it. Networking has been the make or break for many businesses.

Definition of Presence
More and more new authors don’t understand what it means to have a presence online. They think that they have a facebook page and that is enough. Presence means seeing you across the web. Can I look you up and find you? You need to be discoverable online.
How to Get a Presence
You need to get yourself online. You need to be found when someone searches for you. At no time should I have to search high and low to find even one mention of you. Get a presence!
Start with a website. Every author needs one. It cannot be a Facebook page. It needs to be a stand alone website. There are several free versions to choose from or you can purchase a domain name. Keep it updated and share it with other people.
Can you be found on the various social media platforms? If I typed in your name there, would I find you easily? Have a Facebook page, a Google Plus page, a Twitter account, and consider others such as Pinterest and Youtube.
