I'm reading the Bad Red Head Media 30 Day Book Marketing Challenge. Want to follow along as I follow her 30 days of marketing tips?
Day one: Twitter
Here's my experience with Twitter. It's great for getting people to read my blog posts. I don't think it sells books. So, here's my suggestion. If you have blog posts that can help people solve problems, share it on twitter. Find and use the best hashtags.
What did Rachel (the Bad Red Head Media Marketing excerpt) suggest that was new to me? Add links to my websites in my bio. So, I changed my bio from:
When she's not reading, writing, or traveling, she can be found playing games with her family, hiking with her dogs, or watching movies while eating brownies.
Wife, mom, brownie baker, USA Today Bestselling author. Follow @ http://www.kristytate.com/
It's more vanilla, but more informative.
Tonight I'll be back with my stats.
I sent out about 5 tweets. (Lackluster, I know.)
My blog pages views were about 20% higher than the day before.
Day 2: Pin a tweet
I already have a pinned tweet that tells people to sign up for my newsletter to get a free book. I like it, but I changed the verbiage slightly.
She suggested "verbing" my bio. So, instead of introducing myself, tell people what I do for them.
Writing her own happily ever after one day (and tweet) at a time. Follow @ http://www.kristytate.com/
(This tells people that if they read my books, they're sure to get a happy ending.)
What do you think?
