#Authors – HOW TO: Make your Book Promo Posts More Effective…

Whether you are posting on your own blog or through someone else’s

PLEASE REMEMBER TO DO THE FOLLOWING:

BOOK COVER

Always show the book cover…

TIMING

Always schedule your post to go live about one hour after Your Publisher has actually activated it

i.e., to give YOURSELF time to CHECK it has ACTUALLY been activated.

Most potential readers will NOT call back later to check if it is now active.

They will forget.

You WILL lose Sales…

HOW?

Establish the time to post by comparing YOUR timezone time AND DAY with your Publisher:

AMAZON

use SPT Standard Pacific Time (Seattle, Washington State)

SMASHWORDS

use SPT Standard Pacific Time (Los Gatos, California)

PST

PACIFIC STANDARD TIME ZONE IN GREEN

NOTE:

PROVIDE MORE THAN YOUR COUNTRY AMAZON OUTLETS LINKS

EITHER:

Get and display a UNIVERSAL Amazon Outlet Link

OR

Give the links for Amazon in:

UK (.co.uk)  –  USA (.com)  –  Canada (.ca)  –  Australia (.com.au)

I’d recommend you ALSO give the links for India (.in) which has a HUGE english speaking / reading population.

BARNES & NOBLE

use Eastern Daylight Time EDT (New York, New York)

EDT

EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME ZONE IN GREEN

Check the differences when you click on YOUR timezone city (RED DOTS) and THEIRS:

HERE

ALWAYS CHECK THE LINKS YOU’VE PROVIDED

Don’t be in such a rush to post

if links are broken, you WILL lose sales…

PLEASE REBLOG AND SPREAD THIS INFORMATION.
