Street Teams

Hi all,

How many of you have heard the term, Street Team, and wondered what it meant? Well, I have the answer. A Street Team is a group of readers who gather in a location (usually Facebook) and they support, promote and generally connect with a certain author they enjoy reading. This is a beautiful thing for both the reader and the writer.

Coming together with a common purpose is always good, especially if it has anything to do with reading. We all love to read, and getting better acquainted with authors can be a wonderful experience for both parties.

I have a Street Team I love. They do fabulous things to help promote my writing. In return, they get my books first, they get prizes on launches, and they very often give input on the books I write. They chose covers, come up with names, and sometimes help with plot problems. They've enriched my writing and made my life happier.

If this is something that would interest you, contact any of the ladies on this loop and they'd be happy to have you on their team. It's a win-win for everyone, and you get free stuff. :)

Happy Reading,

Geri Foster


  1. I would love to be on your street team :)

  2. great post, Geri! I am happy to be on your team!

  3. Great post, Geri. I need more people on my street team.

  4. Caroline, announce it on your FB account. Say I'm adding ten more people to my Street Team, if interested, let me know.

  5. Sonja, we'd love to have you. Just friend me on FB at and I'll get you set up

  6. I folded my street team, it was more work than I had time for and the group on my author page do more for my promotion than the street team did. So I asked the street team members to move to my author page. I try to give away items but so few respond when I ask for their info to send them things. I just don't have your bubbly personality Geri.

  7. Great post, Geri. I always learn something from you.
