Chicken Soup for the Soul Co-Creator on Social Media: ‘Figure It Out For Yourself’

Chicken Soup for the Soul co-creator Dr. Mark Victor Hansen has seen his popular nonfiction series sell 167 milion copies. The author and entrepreneur had some simple social media advice for writers: “figure it out for yourself.”

In a mediabistro.com interview with GalleyCat contributor Jeff Rivera, Hansen talked about his new book, U R the Solution and offered tips for aspiring writers.

Here’s an excerpt: “What didn’t work was hiring a lot of the consultants especially about social media, who say they know stuff and for the most part, they do not and they charge a lot. In my experience, all of them are making money selling their experience, but they are not turning it into dollars. I had to figure it out by myself which is probably the best way. Go to the seminars, listen to what they have got to say, and then figure it out for yourself.”
