Kevin and the Seven Lions is a 99 cents Kindle Countdown Deal this week. (Click here to get it.)
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.
If you have any experience with Facebook ads, leave a comment and share your experience.
