@Luke Fellner I’ve found (and this advice was given to me by others as well including what you said in your first post), that individual contacts produce better results than a mass Facebook post or Tweet. I sent individual, personal messages to my contacts on LinkedIn and Facebook, letting them know what I was doing and asking for their support.

I’m not sure if that helps?

@Susan Hamilton Would you mind including the best ways to contact people? That’d be great to know.

Hi Leanne. Good luck with your funding.  First bit of advice I would say is have a plan for how/when you’re going to update and contact people. I spent about two weeks flailing around before I wrapped my brain around the process. As for followers, I would say one thing to start with is follow other authors and books. I’ve found that many will follow me back and a few have been excellent resources.

I haven’t been through this experience yet, but what I’ve heard is you just need to go out to each and every one of them to talk to them about buying your book. Ask them if they’d like to buy it, then go from there.

Hi. I wondered if any other authors would be willing to share advice on how they converted followers and prospects into pre-orders? Would love to hear your thoughts on the subject.
