is finally finished! Woo hoo. What a busy three months this has
been. I'm really proud of this book. It's so empowering to all
those struggling authors out there trying to be seen above all
those bestsellers. Social media gives us the opportunity to market
our books for free but it's not much use if it's taking all our
time and it's not working. Stampede works. I talk about my Amazon
book page getting 300 to 500 hits everyday with the system I
developed, well that's nothing, I got over 800 hits yesterday.
It'll do the same again tomorrow and again everyday until I turn my
AutoPilot program off, which I don't think I'll be doing anytime
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!
make much sense to you unless you're into Twitter but an essential
part of STAMPEDE is being able to send out tweets heavily loaded
with hashtags. Actually, not just any old hashtags, hashtags
structured into HASHTAG SENTENCES.
Every guru on the planet has been advising people to never put more
than three hashtags into your tweets, if you have to use them at
all, so you don't look too commercial. What a load of rubbish.
First of all, no one is fooled, everyone knows the tweet about your
book is commercial and secondly, no one seems to have figured out
how to use hashtags effectively, and in an entertaining way. Well I
have and that's part of what I'm teaching people how to do in
Hashtags are far more powerful than people realise. They allow your
tweets to reach audiences that would never normally hear about you.
Simply adding #YA to the end of your tweet will get your tweet seen
by the many thousands and thousands of young adult readers who
follow the #YA hashtag, or #NewAdult, #YALit, #YoungAdult,
#ComingOfAge, #COA, #MG, #KidLit, #MGLit. So by using hashtags, you
don't need to build a social following of your own, you simply
piggy back upon hashtags that already have followers.
For example, as many of you know, most of my books are filled with
laugh–out–loud humour, they’re for Young Adults and there’s hunting
and cooking of game meat in them. Here’s a great quote, link and
hashtag sentence for my market.
His tummy told him that ONE RAT JUST WASN’T GOING TO BE ENOUGH http://getbook.at/We #YA #lol
#Hunting #BBQ #Gamemeat
Not only is there an intriguing story in that quote, but there’s an
intriguing story in the hashtag group as well. That makes the tweet
entertaining and hopefully, intriguing enough to get people to
click the link that takes them to my Amazon book page.
It will reach young adult readers who are looking for a laugh, who
are into hunting, and who like barbecuing game meat. It’s very
focused on my audience and is much more likely to get the sale.
Plus, that one tweet will be replicated 5 times, one for each hashtag.
That's what I call EXPONENTIAL MARKETING and is just one small part
of my amazingly successful STAMPEDE marketing system.
But it all falls flat without the ability to mix hashtag groups to
easily generate thousands of advertising tweets that your AutoPilot
program can send out 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. So I developed
a computer program to generate the tweets. A free version is
available to everyone with a beefed up version available to
[message] [#1|#2] [#3|#4] [#5|#6]
You add your own message, link and groups of hashtags. This was
generated by the example above: message #1 #3 #5
message #1 #3 #6
message #1 #4 #5
message #1 #4 #6
message #2 #3 #5
message #2 #3 #6
message #2 #4 #5
message #2 #4 #6
This is what we're after. Water buffalo. They're an introduced
species that do a lot of damage and need to be culled out. We're
happy to help ;) If I get one with horns half this size I'll be
happy. Either way, the local Aborginal community will appreciate
the meat. We'll probably cook it in a ground oven. Can't wait.
Might be able to catch a pic of some tendrils of steam escaping the
ground to get you salivating ...
