ABC – Day 28 – Using social media

Selling books through social media

Selling books through social media

How are you using social media to promote your book? What aspect of social media would you like to learn more about? What are your next steps?

Since my crowdfunding campaign last year, I haven’t done a lot of “Buy my book” type posts on Facebook and Twitter. I have a post pinned to the top of my Facebook page, but other than that, it’s more about sharing information with my followers.

Most of the promotion has been through different groups and taking up opportunities, such as responding when people are looking for books on bullying, or are looking for stock for a shop, and similar opportunities. I also let people know my links when they ask.

I hate seeing “buy my book” posts from others, it turns me off buying their books, especially if that’s all I see, so I don’t like to do it myself.

I would like to learn more about using the various social media channels better to boost sales without being pushy, and I’m not sure what my next steps will be. I do know I would like it to be manageable with the time and energy I have.
