Will This Get You On The New York Times Best Sellers List?
Now comes the tough question: Will all this work on social media put you on the NYT best sellers list or the USA Today best sellers list? Probably not, but then it really depends on what your goal is. How do you define success in social media marketing? The answer depends largely on how many people you're able to reach. Decide what your goal is as an author, and make it realistic. Much of your goal will depend on how well know you are. Maybe the NYT best sellers list is out of reach for you, but perhaps getting your book to sell better than a 20,000 Amazon ranking consistently is doable. The problem is that there usually isn't a one-to-one correlation when it comes to social media and book sales. Of course, there are always exceptions to this rule. Even ifyou do all the thins mentioned in my post, you can't guarantee a certain number of sales from your hard work. But you can set goals for numbers of books sold, number of people reached, number of fans on your page, and numbers of times a particular post was shared. In this way,you can build your small successes into bigger successes. I hope the material I shared with you will be of some help to you in the marketing of your book. :) http://www.facebook.com/JeaneSashi
