Social Media Valentine's Day Sales ad

I just wanted to offer an interesting observation I made today. Despite the recent article that promoting your book on Facebook and Twitter does no good.

This morning I put a sale notice up on my series blog, advertising "Broken Heart Sale for Valentine's Day" (the book has a shapeshifter that rips out people's hearts and eats them to gain memories, etc. ) Smashwords coupon for 75% off.

I have less than a hundred people following me on Facebook, and probably just over a hundred on Twitter- most of whom are surely autobot/spam machines.

In about ten minutes, I got 22 visitors to my blog. No book sales reported yet, but I find that amazing. (My blog is set to post to Facebook and Twitter)

I'd wager those of you with romance stories might actualy score some sales using a similar tactic. I assume my visits came from all tweets going up on the main Twitter homepage and some good old curiosity.

Social media can work—you just have to figure out what your followers and those who retweet you, want.
