Books & and the Bear: Social Media Promotion

A new one for me: I spent a few bucks (a very few) and ordered a one day social media promotion through Books & the Bear. I’d read and heard good things about their editing and marketing services, so I thought I’d give it a go.

Here’s what I know so far. First, their website looks great and is very easy to navigate, which is a big plus in my book. Second, they have a range of marketing services from blog tours on the high end of the price scale, to book promotion packages and social media promotions on the lower end of the spectrum. Being cheap by nature (and wanting to do an audition, of sorts), I bought the social media promotion, which was only $5. For that, you get a one-day social media blast. I’m not expecting miracles, but Books & the Bear has a very strong social media presence (about 221K on twitter), and they even provide stats for the social media promotion: reach an audience of 210,00+ with an average of 458+ clicks. Whether this will translate into any sales, who knows? But it should, I hope, provide some exposure for ALL THE DIFFERENT WAYS LOVE CAN FEEL.

Max Everhart’s latest book is a collection of short stories called All the Different Ways Love Can Feel.  It is available on his Createspace storeand Amazon. Find him on Facebook and twitter.

  1. Thanks for this post. I’m going to check them out, but probably wait to hear more from you before making any commitment. Hope ALL THE DIFFERENT WAYS. . . does well. It deserves to. 🙂

    1. Yeah, I picked up some new twitter followers, but there’s something off about it. The dozen or so new followers are following hundreds and thousands, but only have a handful of followers themselves. Smells fishy, but whatever, it was only five bucks. Onward. . .

    1. I can report that the social media blast wasn’t worth much. But no big deal, it was only five bucks.
