Chris, the Story Reading Ape has published a blog post on how to make your blog book promos more effective. I thought this is an excellent advice for not only beginners, but as well published authors. Thank you, Chris.
Whether you are posting on your own blog or through someone else’s
PLEASE REMEMBER TO DO THE FOLLOWING:
Always show the book cover…
Always schedule your post to go live about one hour after Your Publisher has actually activated it
i.e., to give YOURSELF time to CHECK it has ACTUALLY been activated.
Most potential readers will NOT call back later to check if it is now active.
They will forget.
You WILL lose Sales…
Establish the time to post by comparing YOUR timezone time AND DAY with your Publisher:
use SPT Standard Pacific Time (Seattle, Washington State)
use SPT Standard Pacific Time (Los Gatos, California)
PACIFIC STANDARD TIME ZONE IN GREEN
PROVIDE MORE THAN YOUR COUNTRY AMAZON OUTLETS LINKS
Get and display a UNIVERSAL Amazon Outlet Link
Give the links for Amazon in:
UK (.co.uk) – USA (.com) – Canada (.ca) – Australia (.com.au)
I’d recommend you…
