Add Your Book to GoodReads

Transcript

I'm going to show you how as an author you can add your book to Goodreads ahead of the release date. Many authors depend on Goodreads as well as Amazon for reviews and if you send out advanced review copies, it's a good idea to actually ask your reviewers to put a review either on Amazon, Goodreads or both preferably. One things that's always hardest from an author point of view, Goodreads is really terrible from an interface point of view. Sorry, just saying if you love it, well you like 1980s computer science but I digress.

I'm going to redo this series. Sorry for the mix-up before but this is how you can use Insights in Facebook advertising as an author. Even if you don't have any audience at all you can get some ideas to at least get you started before you get people to your website or whatever, if you don't have a mailing list. It is possible.

Define your audience for Facebook Insights - Part 1

What I do is I copy all those and pull them onto a notepad or something that I can just copy. Then we're going to go to just to Facebook and type in the name, like Tamika Farnsworth, we know there's nobody there. There's no page there. Nila Nix, that's just a personal page.
