I was just thinking to myself, Does all this promoting I do cross these Facebook’s sites really bring results, as all the writers signed up to them are hunting for the same thing… Readers.
Yesterday, when I checked out my Amazon Author’s Page I noticed there hadn’t been much movement on any of my books. Christmas is a few weeks away and I know people are focusing on those celebrations. I’ve been think about the three thousands copies of Stone Angels which were downloaded a few months ago which haven’t brought any results. Not that I was expecting people to read the book straightaway. That’s the difference between purchasing a book to read and snapping up a bargain when it is available. You know, I’ll get this now and keep it for when I have nothing else to read.
So yesterday just before going to bed I decided to promote my modern gothic crime novel across the sites I have been promoting the Tearoom Chats. This morning I was pleasantly surprised to find that two readers have purchased my novel through seeing my promotion. Two out of the thousands signed up to the sites is a tiny drop in a huge ocean, but I’m guessing it all down to what your book is about, and how you worded your blurb too.
There’s a science to this marketing, which I guess is where advertising comes into it all. At the moment I’m having to keep my promotion simple as I’m busy editing my fourth book. I have invested in a program to create fancy book trailer and adverts for my books, but I need time to play around with the program. Does anyone know where I can purchase more free time?
Have a great day. It’s looking very foggy out here. (English village in South East, England 🏴)
