First Build and Target the Right Audience Online
Probably the first and the most important thing you need to do before getting your poetry published anywhere online is to ensure that you clearly define your audience, i.e. the readers. Remember that this cannot be an overnight task as you will need to understand the genre you are writing and who all you want to reach out to through your writing. Building an audience online takes time, and you need to also stay active on every possible social media platform in order to build the right audience, and also factor in the comments which they put in on your posts.
Do Not Forget Contribution to The Community
In order to ensure a deep and long-lasting impact on your audience, both online and offline, you as a poet need to contribute to your community in a strong manner. Do so by joining networks thathelp you to connect with like-minded writers/poets. You should also be open towards collaborations as this helps a lot in creating the impact you have so long been looking for. Continuously participating and sharing thoughts,experience,ideas with others and making a transparent impression can be a long-term winning plan for a writer or poet. The more you interact the more you become acceptable to people.
Do Not Ignore the Print Options
Even if you go on to become popular in the online world, do not commit the mistake of ignoring print options, like literary magazines.Even though to publish poetry online the dynamic presence would be key, you can turn your success story into an extraordinary one by focusing on print as well.
Try the E-book Way
Publishing poetry is no easy task. To grow yourself and evolve continuously, the writer has to create or find ways. One such way can be through e-books, the perfect merger of the online and offline world. Given the increasing number of people opting for e-books, those are your perfect target audience.
Another benefit would be cutting expenses, as e-books allow you to have a legitimate publication without the trouble of physically printing them and selling them to readers. E-books are easy to publish and also offers a lot of convenience to the readers as they can access the same from any of their mobile devices.
