How to Sell More Books on Twitter: Final Thoughts

How to Sell More Books on Twitter: Final Thoughts
January 30, 2017 No Comments » Writing Advice Nancy E Miller

I decided to look back at Twitter and see if there was anything I missed in my series: How To Use Twitter to Sell More Books and offer my final thoughts if I did.

I had. Some of the most basic stuff, in fact.  I finally, FINALLY, looked at the services available under the Profile listing. I found myself immediately drawn to Twitter Analytics.

Twitter Analytics

Analytics are the 28 day statistics for your feed… top posts, number of impressions, how many profile visits and followers. This helps you know which tweets are working best for you. There are hints such as how to include photos with your post. Remember, photos don’t go against your word count, so don’t be afraid to use them.  They draw attention.

twitterThese analytics are great for motivation as you see the reactions and impressions garnered by different types of tweets.

Under the innocuous title of ‘More’ in Analytics, you find website conversion tracking where you can connect your website to your Twitter.  You can also create groups to gather audiences based on website behavior.

Back on the main profile drop down, you find Lists, Moments, Keyboard Shortcuts, and Twitter Ads.  Lists is where you subscribe to various interests and that helps you work on your marketing.  Along the left hand side of the screen, I noticed topics from the Help section. It convinced me that would be a great place to pick up extra info.

Keyboard Shortcuts are nice. Some folks really get into them. Took me forever to learn the Word shortcuts.

You can also create Twitter ads. Yes, they cost but, if you are promoting a book, it may be worth your while. I intend to experiment with it when I know the publishing date for my next book.

So next time you are on Twitter, take a few to look around at the extras.
