Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
I don't know if anyone here listens to the Self Publishing Podcast with Johnny, Sean, and Dave, but they recently mentioned (briefly and in passing) using Pay with a Tweet to promote their books.
I looked into it, and it is actually really neat. If someone retweets your work, they get a free copy of your book. You get the marketing from them retweeting, and they get your book. The site allows you to set the duration or the number of downloads that occur (mine is only running until June 1st) and you can link it directly back to your blog.
As my goal is to get more people to tweet about my book, it seems to be working great so far. Also, because it allows for a destination link, people are visiting my site more. My views on my blog have quadrupled their average in the last 3 days.
My Pay With A Tweet link is here if you want to check it out. Otherwise just google Pay With A Tweet and try it out for yourself.
Glad I could share! --MD--
