I Stopped Posting About My Books On Twitter For 2 Months. Here’s What Happened.

Hello, everyone! Happy Thanksgiving Monday. ๐Ÿ™‚ So, I stopped posting about my books for a couple of months on Twitter. I needed a bit of a break from promotion and I’ve been thinking of some other ways I can promote my books aside from posting it there. So, this is what happened when I stopped posting about my books on Twitter:

*Drumroll*

I stopped making sales.

Sorry, maybe this was obvious, but case in point: Promotion is key to selling your books and gaining new readers. Once you stop marketing, the sales will drop. I’d say most of my sales have been from posting on Twitter – and this was 100% free advertising. I didn’t make a lot of money, but the sales were pretty steady on a monthly basis. I’ve never paid for ads before, but I’d like to experiment with that down the line to see what happens. I’ll be posting more about my books again on Twitter and I think now is a good season to get people’s interest in reading. My hope is that people will want to read more with the weather cooling down – or perhaps grab some ebooks to read over the upcoming holidays.

Do you advertise your books on Twitter? If not, where do you promote your work?

    • That’s a great question. :3 I use #selfpromosaturday and #indieauthor. You can also search #selfpromosaturday and some people will post asking for authors to drop their links. Some people sell their work by replying to #writerslift posts, too.

      • Thank you! ๐Ÿ’– I’m going to give those a try and see what works, and I’ll be happy to circle back here to share the results. Or if I find something new that works, though you’ve probably tried more things than I have. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  1. Snippets of my books are posted on Twitter, but that’s as far as it goes. I am more trying to get my name out there as far as my writing goes. I won’t pay for marketing, mostly because I can’t afford to lol.
