My facebook ad costs went down to 60 cents per click. I got 12 clicks yesterday. I'm not going to scale up with more money at this point.
Instagram continues to work well for me. I have a smart url aligned with it and it's doing better than my facebook ads. And it costs nothing. Lining them up with co-promote boosts has made them even better. Yesterday, I counted 28 clicks.
By comparison, using twitter got 15 clicks but only after using hundreds of thousands of co-promote credits I have accumulated over the past few months.
The newspaper article covering my campaign went to print yesterday and on-line yesterday afternoon. I counted 13 clicks from that article.
Here's a link to the article: http://yourniskayuna.com/blog/2017/03/10/swyers-writes-legal-thriller-for-2nd-book/
Kindle Scout got some publicity from the article. No, I didn't say the book with the most nominations wins. But that's the way it was reported in the article.
I plan to leverage this article over the duration of my camapign--not necessarily immediately. I will use it in posts and advertisements.
My clicks don't exactly correspond to what the Kindle Scout stats report because they count the clicks differently. Let say they count quality kicks in their eyes.
Looking back, the talk I gave on Monday generated 10 clicks over the past five days and all of them were probably votes. They all went on-line with my link (provided at the talk) with the intention of supporting the book.
Note that I dropped off hot and trending (on 12 hours yesterday) with only 11 less (83 vs 72) page views than the day before when I was on hot and trending for 24 hours,
I can only theorize as to why that happened.
Today is a regroup day. I have a service scheduled to help with the promotions today. It's a Saturday when people are more engaged with social media. I need a day off to attend to real life and to plan the next phase of the campaign.
