Welcome to week 2 of my Friday series about creating a Snippet. Last week I described Snippet and my plan for this six-week series of posts.
In this post, we’ll create an account with Snippet and explore Snippet’s features.
Go to the official website to register for an account. You’ll need to give your full name and a valid email address and will be asked to create a password. Click the big green ‘sign up’ button. Congratulations! You’ve created a Snippet account. You’ll be taken to your dashboard and given a basic tutorial.
Also, you’ll find a “welcome” email in your inbox.
Before you go any further, you might want to check out the FAQ page. I’ve highlighted some of the important stuff you should know:
- It is FREE to publish on Snippet.
- Snippets may be priced between $.99 and $4.99, or offered free of charge.
- Proceeds are 50/50.
Let’s take a quick look at some of Snippet’s features.
Keep in mind that Snippets are short and sweet. Each chapter is 1000 words or less. However, you can add photos, video, and audio. You can “invite readers to connect within the chapter using social timelines.”
Snippet calls its multi-media options discoverables.
I love this quote from Pat Flynn, a blogger I admire who has published a Snippet to share his personal story. We’ll be taking a closer look at Flynn’s Snippet, Let Go, next week.
“The multi-media experience was the perfect way to share my story, and integrating social media into it was just beyond wild – it was so cool to see exactly who was reading my book and when, and the fact that I could immediately reply and thank them meant a lot to me.”
—PAT FLYNN, Writer and Top-Rated Blogger, Let Go
That’s it for today’s post! Next week I’ll be reviewing Flynn’s Snippet so we can get a better idea of everything you can do with Snippet.
