I loved what this author has to say about who is referring people to your blog. My audience has grown more in the past week than on average over the past 8+ years I’ve been blogging. If you have a chance to stop by my blog or any other blogger’s site, for which I share posts from time to time, please leave a comment and let us know how much you appreciate our work or simply answer the questions we pose¬†at the end of our posts. We’d love to hear from you and engage with our readers.

Have a blessed Sunday afternoon.

WordPress V Facebook

Personally I like WordPress better than facebook, because when you upgrade to the premium plan with WordPress, you can have a domain that is yours, which you can’t do with Facebook. I also like that my posts can be seen and shared for a long time on wordpress and I can choose which posts to pin to the front page, whereas they get shuffled to the bottom of the moshpit on facebook. Please read the original post to continue the conversation with the author.

Promoting your book is work, but it can also be fun, if you fine the right outlet

Hello everybody,

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.
