Big changes have been underway in the background lately:
- I completely revamped my website to focus on capturing email addresses for my new newsletters by way of offering something for free: http://bunyapublishing.com/
- I started two new newsletters, and scrapped the old one which couldn't cater to fiction and non fiction in the same newsletter:
- Readers Group- for all things Urban Hunters(you get Four Small Stones and Tribal Scarring free, plus more freebies coming later: http://eepurl.com/_E311
- Marketing Strategies that Work!- for all things relating to marketing and my Tweet Generators(you get Stampede totally free): http://eepurl.com/baqxn5
- Four Small Stones, book 1 in my Urban Hunters series is now permanently free on Amazon: http://geni.us/1N7u
- I revamped my Amazon categories, keywords and book blurbs to ensure I show up on the front page lists when someone searches for books like mine. The difference this has made is nothing short of amazing!
- And I'm now directing all my Twitter advertising links generated by my Tweet Generators, to my website instead of Amazon. Doing it this way allows me to capture my customers email addresses, rather than giving that asset to Amazon. This puts me in direct contact with my customers, helps guarantee my future and removes my vulnerability to Amazon making changes that would have an adverse effect on me. Similar to what Facebook has done. If you're getting this message, you're one of the very few of my followers that Facebook will send this message to.
These changes have had an immediate and very positive effect on my book sales and subscriptions to my Tweet Generators. It's been an incredible amount of work but well worth the effort. Subscribe to my marketing newsletter for more information on how I've done it all, and how you can do the same.
I don't use this blog very often anymore so if you want to keep up to date, my newsletters or Facebook is the way to go.
Until next time, Gary
P.S. I won't be adding links to my newsletters here anymore, so if you're interested, follow the links to subscribe now :)
