I’ve been thinkin’.
I think I will be changing my weekly newsletter to a bi-weekly one. Why? Two reasons:
- I don’t want to inundate my subscribers with emails
- My open rate may increase (my current open rate is ~35%)
- It’s a lot of work coming up with relevant content
- It’s an opportunity to do a funny survey (which I dearly love to do)
Umm, that’s more than two reasons.
- I know.
I think (whoops, there I go again) my weekly issue has served its purpose of keeping my new readers informed about my WIP and in loop for my new releases. My offering of the various promos I participate in is updated each Friday, so I can direct them there.
I won’t cut them off cold-turkey, that would be cruel, so I should have everything ready for the beginning of March. Here’s a question for ya:
“If you subscribe to a newsletter, what day do you like it to arrive?” You can comment below.
Wait! No interviews?
I’m glad you asked. No.
Umm, care to elaborate?
On “No”? Sure. There is not an interview this week.
Are there going to be any . . . ever again?
So glad you asked! I have two at the end of the month and my March slots are quickly being filled.
The story behind Free Book Friday:
I’ve met many authors and readers during my time marketing, cross-promoting, and blogging. I think writers have a responsibility to inform readers about all the indie authors out there in the very crowded world of book publishing. You can’t do it alone, and why would you when you have a supportive group available?
Readers don’t just read one author – they stick with their favorite genres. There lies the power in cross-promotion. If one of my readers buys a book from an author I promote, then chances are there will be a reciprocal effect, or so is the hope. Do I want to boost sales? Of course I do. Do I want to boost other’s sales? Why not. It’s called karma.
