Authors Marketing: What’s in a Number?

 

Along with my other series, which will be out with the relaunch, I’m adding this bit of help in your own book marketing.

When I find authors doing something smart and new, I will include it here. That gives any author just a bit more help in their marketing efforts.

I strongly feel that each author should help others as much as possible. Not a new belief but hopefully I can showcase authors displaying new types of marketing tips for you to use in your own book marketing.

So, what is in a number?

Today I find Caron Kamps Widden   {@CaronWidden} adding her review numbers to her Twitter book tweets. I don’t know if she is the first one to do it, but it’s a smart practice. Numbers always help.

Case in point? If you subscribe to Bookbub, a powerhouse in marketing, you’ll notice that the add the number of reviews on either Amazon or Goodreads. That certainly gets me to check out more about the book and about the author if he or she is new to me. This is the exact thing Bookbub wants and it pays off in droves of traffic…with just a number.

Find Caron at her website and on Twitter.

Any thoughts on this? What is your opinion?
