Facebook is one of the most useful tools in a writer’s arsenal! Not only is it amazing for creative writing resources (like the Writers World page I posted last week), but it’s also an excellent place for marketing.
I notice that a lot of writers post links to their books in the many marketing and book-oriented Facebook Pages and Groups. These Pages/Groups allow you to post links freely, and they’re a sort of free marketing tool.
Disclaimer: I haven’t seen a lot of results using this method. It seems like a lot of authors shouting at each other, but not putting the books in front of readers (the people you want to reach). However, a lot of self-published authors swear by it, so it may be worth a try.
(Note: Read the rules of the page/group before posting. Some will only allow once per day/week, while others have a certain day available for promo. If you don’t follow the rules, you’ll get kicked out!)
Here is a list of a few groups and pages where you can post links to your book/s once it is available online:
This is just a short list (20 pages/groups), and I will continue to post links to more over the next few months. If you know of any more groups/pages that allow you to post links, drop a comment below and I’ll add it into the next list. Thanks, and best of luck with the marketing!
