Quick Tip ~ The Power of Word of Mouth: Ask For Reviews!

One key step in getting your books to fly off the shelf is word of mouth. Make use of the review comments on Amazon and any other purchase platforms you may be using. 

Use lines from these reviews as Twitter and Facebook posts as part of your social media networking plan for marketing.

How do you get these reviews and comments? Simple! Ask for them. Send an email request to your contact list to help you out, get in touch with relatives and friends, make use of your social media network.

Let your friends and contacts know this isn’t going to be a time-consuming project – who has time in their busy schedule – you only need 20-50 words and there’s no purchase necessary. If they can’t oblige with a review or comment ask them to at least click on the ‘Like’ or ‘thumbs up’ icon on the product page.

Here’s a bonus tip for you first though: You’ve probably heard me harping on the benefits of targeting you Twitter posts. The # symbol, called a hashtag, is used to mark a keyword or topic in a Tweet. To reach the Tweeps most interested in your Tweet you want to drill down to the most effective hashtags/keywords just like you do when you list your You Tube videos or books on Amazon. It might help to think of #hashtags like you would SEO keywords.

Hashtags.org not only shows how much use a certain hashtag receives but gives you some analytical information for that keyword also.

TweetChat.com also shows you how often a hashtag is being used. This helps you choose the most effective words to apply the # symbol to and reach the most people searching for that particular word.

Not long ago I shared the URL for BlogGrader with you; a great free tool to help you focus on how to improve your site so that you could increase traffic.

Well, BlogGrader has now changed it’s scope and name [still a FREE tool though] so that while it checks out your site it also checks out how influential your Tweets and FaceBook posts are.

This tool wouldn’t be a lot of use to anyone without letting you know how you might improve things and that is exactly what Marketing Grader from Hub Spot does.
