Re: New to Forum - Ideas on how promote a new book
When you say "put the word out on Facebook," how so?
There's a huge difference (I've found) between putting a post on your wall, or a status update, and sending your friends or followers a direct message.
The only problems with this method
1) Facebook limits the number of direct messages you can send daily. Ridiculous, yes. But, if you send more than, say, ten messages, your account can get flagged for sending too many messages.
2) If you send the same message to 90 people, when one person replies, the reply goes to all 90. Again, wish there was a fix for that, but... hummmph.
But, sending directly works much, MUCH better.
