The Many Works of Pat Hatt
Back to a question at hand as the IWSG goes about its monthly post while all are in A to Z land. Or a between z as the cat would have it this year. What is the question? It is rather wordy this month.
Have you taken advantage of the annual A to Z Challenge in terms of marketing, networking, publicity for your book? What were the results?
Umm…does finding some new fun blogs count? I’ve found a few people through it and a few have found me…or the cat rather…but as far as any real marketing or anything like that, nah.
The most I’ve done otherwise is release a book or 3 during the a to z. But I did that every month for a while so that was a common thing.
But the one thing I do find is that many in the a to z do try to do just that and only that. All they do is market with “Buy Me” for the whole month and then they never seem to post again. Which I find dumb and don’t even bother going to their blogs. Especially after their great “nice post” comment.
That’s not just with books either, as I’ve seen many do it with many things. And that is not to say it can’t be done. But just shoving it in a person’s face and using a blog for that and nothing else, nope.
Being creative with it will sure get one more in the end. That is just my ten cents. Ever bothered with the a to z? Market away at your bay? Love those “buy me” or “look at me” blogs?
Enjoy life, forget the strife.
