What is a Street Team?

A street team is a concept that was born in the music industry. It's basically a group of fans who "hit the streets" to help authors promote their books by writing honest reviews, blog posts, sharing the author's works on social media and by recommending the books to family and friends. I remember a comment from one of my marketing professors in college: you could have the best product on the planet but people aren't going to buy it if they don't know about it.

Ways You Can Participate:

  • Write honest reviews at Amazon, Goodreads, BN.com, or other online review sites
  • “Like” my books on Amazon and BN.com
  • "Like" my Facebook Fanpage and Amazon Author Page
  • Recommend my books on Goodreads and add to your Goodreads list
  • Share my books, especially during a new release, and latest news on any social media outlets you use (Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr…)
  • Direct people to my website
  • Pin book covers to Pinterest
  • Suggest my book on reading forums
  • Recommend my books to family, friends and coworkers
  • If you're a blogger, you'll have a chance to participate in cover reveals, interviews, etc.
  • Join my private Facebook group to get to know me and your other teammates
  • Invite other readers to join the team

I respectfully ask that you do not respond to negative reviews. There will always be someone who doesn't like our work, no matter how hard we try as an author. We can't please everyone.

Benefits of Joining

  • My sincere gratitude
  • The first 15 who sign up will get a bag of swag
  • A button to add to your blog or FB page announcing you as a member of my street team
  • Members will be listed in the acknowledgements section of the next book
  • Benchmark prize drawings
  • An invite to my private FB group where you can connect with me and other team members (available soon)
  • Special prizes and giveaways only available to street team members (must join FB Group to be eligible)
  • Opportunities to name a character in one of my books (must join FB Group to be eligible)
  • First look at new covers and story ideas (must join FB Group)
  • Opportunity to name the street team (must join FB Group)

Don't feel guilty if you can't perform every task…any little bit helps. I want this to be fun and rewarding for you. It would be helpful if you were on Facebook where we can communicate with strategies that work, share ideas and get to know each other, but right now, it's not a requirement. However, you must join the Facebook group to be eligible for some of the benefits, including helping me come up with a name for the group! I'm tentatively calling you the Velvet Brigade, but I'd love to hear your ideas.

I hope you will decide to join my street team! I have lots of fun and exciting things planned in the near future so I hope you will join me! My street team will be a no-drama zone. Please be kind to one another.
