Of the social-as-storytelling platforms, by far the best known and most elaborate is Wattpad , with some 70 million users who are there for the purpose of storytelling rather than, say, watching fake news, trolling each other, or sharing gifs. For those type of writers, social publishing can be a brilliant first route. When that digital-first publication started to make waves, James sold the rights to Random House, that propelled the book and its author to mega-stardom.
In effect, that one trilogy moved from social publication, to digital first publication, to Big 5 publication with literary agent attached. Yes, you can practice your craft and build an audience on Wattpad, but you still have to make the leap from that to a more formal publication channel.

Ideally, your book will be entered into promotions, that place your book in the most visible store locations and with an attractive price reduction.
Selling the book via online retailers. Although Amazon pretty much does stock every book out there, publishers still have to persuade Amazon and Apple, and Kobo, and so on to promote your book as much as possible. Marketing the book. That will probably involve a mixture of traditional publicity such as newspaper interviews and book signings and digitally driven campaigns, probably involving social media, email marketing and perhaps some use of pay-per-click advertising. So agents are good; they make sales; they work on commission. But it gets better. In addition to that basic sales activity, literary agents also: Offer you editorial advice to help you get your manuscript in shape for sale Run the auction process Negotiate the resulting contract Supervise the publication process , advise you on it, and act as your bull terrier if any conflicts arise Sell other rights , such as foreign language rights, audio if not part of the original deal , and film and TV rights.
