|Tips and Topics for Writers|
Hello and Welcome to the Focused on Story Blog by J.Q. Rose!
We are wrapping up the spring season today on the Focused on Story blog and will move on to a new guest author series in July. Curious? Keep reading.
I have a few more tips to share with you. Well, really I have a ton of tips for you. If you ever have questions about blogging, writing, publishing and/or marketing, please feel free to email me at jqrose02 at gmail dot com and ask away!
I am celebrating! I have reached 500+ followers on my Facebook page! Woot woot!! Thank you to all who support me here on the blog and on Facebook and my newsletter.
I have more traffic and views than I have ever had. Don't get the idea though that the more followers you have, the more books you will sell. Facebook isn't for selling books, according to those in the know. It's a good way to get your name known. Have you heard that people have to see an ad at least 7 times before they will click on it. Not necessarily buy though. Unfortunately.!!!
So how did I increase followers and views? I began using the Planner page on my FB business page in the Meta Business Suite. I love it. I can sit down and make up my blog posts for the week in a couple of hours. FB takes care of the rest. I also like seeing how people are engaging with the topic on the post. Sometimes I am overwhelmed by the response to a dumb picture or disappointed when there is little reaction to a post I built around one of my books.
I go with the advice given by social media experts not to be shouting out buy my book, buy my book, but rather do one sales pitch out of 5 posts. And don't make them all memes you share from another page.
Hope this helps!
