Yesterday I had a chat with someone who has become dear to me over the past few months. The thing is I have never met her in person, but she and I are building a “BLOGSHIP”. I know that’s not a word, but there is not a word for a relationship via a blog, so I made-up my own. Colleen Chesebro from the Silver Threading blog has been a great source of support with the launching of my debut novel, The Mistreatment of Zora Langston. Well Colleen suggested I start a Thunderclap campaign to help get the word out.
As an indie author I am all about finding unique and effective ways to market my book, not to mention FREE! I decided to check out their website and found it very interesting indeed. Thunderclap is an online forum for people to spread the word about their causes. You’ll find campaigns about the environment, health, legalizing cannibus, etc. They also offer artists the opportunity to start a campaign to get the word out about their work.
You sign up in just a few minutes providing a social media account of your choice.(required because this is how they run the campaign) You can choose the amount of clicks required to start running your campaign. I chose 100, the basic plan. Once the set-up process is complete, they will review your campaign and either approve or deny your campaign request. I am happy to report mine was approved!
Now come the fun part. I NEED to get 100 of my family, friends, followers and fellow bloggers to go to my campaign and simply click the button to support my campaign. If I meet the minimum clicks by the deadline I set during set-up, the company will launch a social media campaign to spread the word about my book! I chose the FREE option, but you can upgrade to other packages for a pre-determined rate.
Now I need your HELP! I need everyone who reads this post to click the link to my campaign and support me. It doesn’t cost any money and it will help get my book some exposure.
Thanks for your assistance and please spread the word: Reblog, share on FaceBook and Twitter
