Okay, I don't understand so I give up. Sorry, guess this was a bad idea for me.

Yeah, I'm lost too. I'm not in this promo but was planning on supporting it of course.  (I did manage a tweet using the promo picture.)

I have my emails broken up into lists. The first set of 5k went out about an hour ago. So far 131 clicks to the promo page, but it's early. I usually see a lot more email opens later, so that number should go up. The rest go in the morning - creating some urgency for people to "click now".

I can't tell on my individual sales yet because I've had other promos going all this week, but tomorrow I should know from the affiliate links.

Thanks everyone for all you're doing.

Do you retweet every single person's tweet about the promo? I have retweeted a few and will do a couple more, but isn't there a risk for "over-retweeting"? It just becomes like spam. But what do I know, I'm not very twitter savvy...
I'm not real big on Twitter either, so my focus is mainly on the FB posts. I've been trying to go at different times of day to RT for people. That helps spread it out in the feed since I doubt anyone watches my feed steadily. :)  For the FB shares, I try and individualize my comments. When I share someone's post I'll comment by talking about the book title and author's name. So instead of repeating "lots of books/99c" on and on I'll say something more personal like "Author Brian Spangler has his book, TITLE, for only 99c too. Don't miss the chance to check these authors out." blah blah blah, like that.

I have a mailing list the promo site is going out to this evening.  I've mainly posted and retweeted on twitter.  Good stuff!  Mystery lovers should eat these 60 books like cake!  :P

Let's hope so. I'm going to do some more facebook posts later tonight. Looks like we'll be getting a lot of eyes on our promotion. Awareness is the first step down the path to a sale.

BTW, I should also note that the book I have in the promo is my second in series. #1 in the series is permafree and I have also noted an uptuck in free downloads on that title.

Another FB glitch (because it wouldn't make sense for FB to be easy to use...) is that some of the posts come up OK but I can't interact, i.e., there is no Like or Share option.

Assuming my FB link in my post upthread works (I did test it...), I recommend using the "save" feature. It's relatively straightforward, at least from a personal Profile (not Page). Make sure the link to the promo is in your post, then use this guide:


(Click to see at 100%)

The wording in step 4 will depend on your browser, although I probably should have used "copy link" rather than "save link" -- it might also be something like "copy target" or "copy link destination" etc.

I created a new tweet that expounds on #CrushOnABook: https://twitter.com/LynnHallbrooks/status/731256478544351232

I did another to explain about all the ReTweets: https://twitter.com/CSWCLynn/status/731264357204656129

I put the word out on LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/hp/update/6137002124480958464

Plus I've ReTweeted via my CSWCLynn twitter. I think I'm going to quit for today. Catch up tomorrow.

Oops, forgot to mention that I added a non-scheduled tweet to take advantage of the #CrushOnABook trending hashtag:

https://twitter.com/Crenel/status/731246117711544320

Also, good idea to try out LinkedIn, so I did that too:

www.linkedin.com/hp/update/6137035945200939008

ETA: I specifically set the "privacy" of the LinkedIn post to "Public" but when I try it in a browser where I'm not logged in, it pushes me to log in. So, that's about as useful as Facebook... :(

Thank you everyone, especially Renee! I think this is a great idea.

So far I haven't had a noticeable rise in sales. Unless there's a delay in reporting. Still have tomorrow though.

I'm up to 13 sales for today. My ranking has dropped from yesterday's 40K to 25K, so it's been a good day.

I've been liking posts and retweeting etc. I have the rest of my emails going out in the morning. Clicks to the promo page from the email now is 220.
I have a busy morning, so it may not be until the afternoon (MST) that I can check affiliate links. I will post some results here when I can.
Thanks everyone for working hard at this. Thanks also to those who don't have books in the promo but are sharing anyway. We will return the favor :)

I'm up 15 sales today which is good results although my sales ranking hasn't budged all day. It will eventually  and should certainly improve. :)

Edit: Renee thanks for all your hard work. You've done a great job.

I've had 25 or so extra sales today. I had a new release in a different series today as well, so that accounts for a few, I'm sure. Nice upticks in the other books as well.

No Internet for most of the day and we're moving house today as well. I got my posts scheduled this morning and had my newsletter all scheduled ahead so that helped. I've finally had the chance to get in and start liking posts and tweets.

What a day!
