Direct messages are any campaign’s bread and butter. I also recommend updating your email signature (and any forum signatures if that’s applicable) right away as a passive measure that helps over time.

And make sure that your facebook posts have comments on them - if they have a link and no comments the news feed algorithm will drop them to the bottom.

I have massive group of people that use the band app that I’m trying to covert over here.

@Lemery.Logan I’m not sure if there are any of those on here, I meant for you to do that in the outside world. Even finding blogs or Facebook pages that appeal to those people and contacting them to help you market your book can go a long way if done well.

I love the ideas so far. To follow up on targeting. I am still learning the curvature of the site. By chance are there any groups or forums for like-minded authors and projects on here?

I recommend that you talk to everyone you know, as Craig said. You should also get involved in your community, think about who your target audience would be and hunt them down. Another good group to reach out to is the elderly, those that would know how to access inkshares at least. Think who has free time and spare cash, then think about which of those people would be interested in your book. Another good group to market towards is people who spend a lot of time waiting, for example, parents need something to read while in the waiting room of wherever their child may be. Also think about people who use public transportation to get to work, they need something to occupy themselves with, why not your book?

I’d start by fleshing out your book page with a synopsis, and background about the book and yourself. 
Also,  check out other projects on the site.  Get involved,  comment and review and others will reciprocate.
And finally,  get out there and start selling.  Direct personal messages to everyone you know, social media, and any sales avenue outside of the Internet you can think of.

Best of luck!

So I just launched my first campaign for my book I have been sitting on for almost a year. I’ve shared the link with family and friends. Now what?
