  11. 11. 6. Create a Facebook Page  Facebook is the most popular social network that can help you spread the news about your eBook.  To get to your readers on Facebook you just need to know a few tricks:  Find groups where people share news about published books, or books they’ve read or inspiring quotes from books.

Ask them to share the news.  Use an automation software to schedule posts on your Facebook Page, to keep your followers engaged. Remember the 80/20 rule! (20% of your posts can be promotional about your book, but 80% should be useful and inspiring material)  Reach out to influencers in your field and tell them about your book. Kindly ask them to share the news with their audience. Copyright 2015 www.massplanner.com
