The Thunderclap.it story continues. On May 28th, 2016 at 10 AM my campaign went out to 1,793,812 people. Thank you to everyone who supported the campaign. Your effort made a big difference in my life, and I’d like to share the data from yesterday.
Moments before the message was sent, my stats on Amazon.ca were:
Later in the day, here’s what happened:
That’s enough of an increase to make me happy 🙂
So should you do a campaign?
My campaign for was a non-fiction book, so keep that in mind. I’m not sure if it would be successful for a fiction book. I don’t plan to do one for AVALANCHE when it’s released, June 25th.
Preparing for the campaign takes a fair amount of time. You must contact people personally when you first start the campaign. You need 100 people to support you for the campaign to go live. After I reached 100 people, I spent 3 weeks contacting others in my network asking for support. At the end, I reached out personally to all supporters and thanked them.
Time consuming – yes. Fun – also yes.
Would I do it again? Yes. But only for a non-fiction title.
Thunderclap is a crowdspeaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together. It allows a single message to be mass-shared, flash mob-style, so it rises above the noise of your social networks. By boosting the signal at the same time, Thunderclap helps a single person create action and change like never before.
And a little secret…Imajin Books has decided to keep THE AUTHOR’S GUIDE TO SELLING BOOKS TO NON-BOOKSTORES on sale for a little while longer. You can still get a copy for $0.99 USD at myBook.to/SellingBooks
