Where To Promote Your Free Kindle Book on Twitter
So you’ve taken the plunge and have decided to make your book free for the Kindle using the Kindle Select program. (See “How KDP Select Will Make You An Amazon Bestseller” about the Kindle Select program written by bestselling award-winning author, Ezra Barany.)
Now comes time for promotions! Let’s examine where To promote your free kindle book on Twitter.
Since I always learn by doing, I usually do everything backwards until I figure out how to proceed in a more logical calm manner. The first time I used Kindle Select to make my self-coaching guide for authors, The Writer’s Adventure Guide, free, I just made it free and then promoted, late in the day.
Now I set the free dates about a week away and get rolling on my promotions.
I let my list know. You do have a newsletter, I hope. I use GetResponse.com.
On the day of the promotion, I let my Facebook groups know. If you’re not on genre-specific reader groups I highly recommend it. Since I write YA fantasy, I belong to the Young Adults and Children Promotional Group for Authors, among many others. How to use Facebook Groups to grow your fan base and promote your books is the subject of a future blog post.
I did a Goodreads event for the Kindle giveaway, and let a bunch of Twitter accounts know.
I’ve listed the ones I’ve researched and will be contacting to ask them to mention my book to their followers. I don’t vouch for the quality, though picked ones that have a big reach. Do your own research, but this list is a good starting point.
- and the list goes on!
More I’ve gathered from the awesome resourceful writers at Marketing for Romance Writers (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MarketingForRomanceWriters/):
Be sure to check each one for how to submit your book. As I have more news on how to do so, I’ll post it in this post.
