Where to find free marketing

Hi everyone, it’s been awhile since I’ve written a blog. I’ve been mainly focused on my books and scripts and juggling projects. Today however I spent the entire day in marketing. Which brought up the thought that I need to share these tidbits with all of you.

I aim to find as much free marketing as I can, keeping my budget to editing and covers. Here are a few I’ve found. If you know of more, please share in the comments for everyone else too. I’ll post all links at the end.

The new one today (which I did share in a few groups) is an android app Booksniffer. This claims to allow people to follow you and it does allow you to create new free ads. I made this one in three clicks.

A web based classified called Locanto. This is simple to use and even though you need to fill out the form for every location you want to post, the form auto fills most – I use notepad to keep the description – so it’s fairly quick. I also post to Provinces and States, not cities. You can literally have ads worldwide free if you have the time. PS the listing may say 32 days but they run forever without deleting.

And don’t forget Google My Business, both an app and a website. These are located on the google main page, top right corner at the 9-dots, open them (if you aren’t familiar) and scroll down to my business. On the phone, head into the app store and search googlemybuisness and get it.  You don’t need to pay to use it. I don’t, and I get almost 7000 hits a month – sometimes more, depending on my posts.

And this is all I did today.  There are others, but that’s it for now. Again if you know any good free places, give a share!

Blurb, blurb, blurrr….

You all know the drill. Been there done that. Hated every second of it!

Most of the time I’m not too put off by creating the blurb. Occasionally it’s even fun.

I didn’t create this one, but it’s a blurb with a shameless plug

There are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of articles, websites, and blogs dedicated to writing the perfect blurb. Google it and see. I’m not here to give advice, I’m here to ask your help!

 

 

I keep re-writing my blurb and posting on a few writers Facebook sites and they keep bouncing back with hems and ha’s

Here is my last attempt – still searching for exactly the right hook.

 

Wife N’ Death

When Angelica commits murder/suicide, she thought her troubles would end. What came next was worse than her tortured life. In purgatory, she is stalked by the one she killed with no way out.

Until one day, something beyond her control changes.

~

Crystal runs from her troubled past to a new house in a new town, in a nice neighborhood. She believes this will be the best new beginning for her little girl. Not long after moving her daughter begins to act out of character and Crystal blames herself for the change.

Only Angelica knows the truth; that these women should not be in her house.  Now she must find a way to stop what she started. To save the innocent and break her own bonds.

Before evil rules them all.

 

Chime in, tell me what you think – or share your blurb woes
