I’m here today to talk about a fun and hopefully rewarding marketing experience for my book called A Journey of Faith. First, let me ask you a question. Have you ever thought about finding author groups on Facebook to advertise your books in? If not, I pray that my own experience will inspire you.
I recently joined a facebook group called Author Train Depot. Not knowing what this group actually does, I just read that they help authors promote their books. Boy was I in for a pleasant surprise. I joined the virtual train ride today, and I posted the first poster link where all our books were listed and left my book ad and cover photo in the comments of this post. Then I posted the link on my timeline and commented with my book ad and cover. We post our book ads and cover photos on each other’s timelines, in the comments section, and watch the salesroll in.
Once I got the hang of the train ride, it was a fun experience for me on Facebook. I’m not saying that you should use Facebook, or any other social media outlet for that matter, as your only marketing outlet, but you can find a way to utilize the tools you have for marketing your books, and have fun while doing it. If you do’t enjoy the work you do, then what’s the point of doing the work, right?
You don’t have to answer that last question, but here’s a question I would like you to answer. What marketing outlets have you used that are fun and rewarding all at the same time. I’d love to read your story in the comments below. You may have a few tricks up your sleeve that I’m not aware of. Let’s help each other as writers, to get our work into the hands of readers.
Until next time, happy reading, writing, and blessings to you and yours.
