Ensure that your work achieves its maximum impact and reach by following these 10 simple but effective promotional techniques.
1. Post your article to social media
Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter are extremely valuable resources for promoting your work. Twitter remains the most effective form of social media. Don't forget to use hashtags, tag @LivUniPress, and include images whenever you can.
2. Update your email signature
Alert colleagues and researchers of your work by adding your article's title, and the link to its webpage, to your email signature.
3. Submit an article to The Conversation
Widen your audience by featuring on The Conversation, an independent source of news and views, sourced from the academic and research community and delivered direct to the public. The piece would be around 600-800 words and you would receive considerable editorial support as it would be a collaborative effort between you and the editor (your expertise and their journalistic approach). Contact us for more information on submitting an article.
4. Utilise your research community
Discuss your work at networking events and conferences, and post to any relevant listservs. Get in touch if you require flyers or any other promotional materials.
