Learning Facebook ads and books

Kevin and the Seven Lions is a 99 cents Kindle Countdown Deal this week. (Click here to get it.)

"Kevin and the Seven Lions"



But the real news is that I noticed when I promoted a Facebook post announcing the deal that I got more clicks on the link then I had when I hadn’t boosted it.

Here is the post:



I do think the click increase also has to do with the language of the post.  This time I mentioned that the story  of Kevin also includes a good teacher.  And since I am selling to teachers that seems to have increased the post engagement.

I run a Facebook just to see what sort of engagement I can get.  Writers will pay for a Bookbub or Freebooksy Promotion, why not try a Facebook post that will give you more info?  You get no info from the others on how many  people click through to see your book.  I get that info with a Facebook ad.

This was just an experiment.  I believe that part of our jobs is marketing.  Finding new readers and fans.  This is the business part of the equation.
