Since it’s voting day in the US, I’ve just posted a poll about my eStory “Twenty-Four Hours of Freedom” on its FB page. I’ve been getting some steady feedback about wanting a sequel, so I’d like to know what you think?
So I keep getting feedback that 24 hours with Owen and Makayla are not enough. Since it's voting day, I thought a poll…
Since Smashwords is having their “Read an EBook” week this week, I thought I would coincide that with my book giveaway. (so there can be an extra week of free!) I saw a Smashwords post on FB, and thought, why not share and boost an ad post on FB? At least they give a total budget and potential reach of customers. If only want to spend a few dollars on this, I can. Plus, it’s one post boost–it’s practically harmless, right?
So far I’ve got a couple of downloads. I’m not sure exactly where those leads came from, because I have posted this announcement all over my social media accounts, and not too many of these have the same tracking/statistics as WordPress. But I have noticed the spike in sales since that FB post was put up.
There are 7 more days for this ad to run, so I will keep you updated on my progress. So far I’ve learned.
Advertising gets you exposure out of your own circle. (And you wouldn’t believe how big your circle really is (and how small it is in comparison to your target reader.).)
A little $ can go a long way, so invest in a marketing budget.
Again, a great book cover is halfway to a great advertisement on digital platforms (I didn’t have to create a commercial or even do anything but be myself and I had an ad.)
Look for advertising plans/vendors with specific data and potential reach and targeting information. In other words, know how much each $ of advertising will buy.
