Tweets for your Book ... Packages starting at only $5


This post is now out of date! 
 

 

"You can't sell books on Twitter," say the naysayers. 
But I say, "Hog wash!"

Perhaps you won't sell very many books (if any) solely because of a tweet, but that doesn't mean Twitter shouldn't be part of your front line defense. Be it directing attention to a blog (which I can directly attest to) or sending prospective customers to Amazon, Twitter is a rich source of traffic.

Twitter has done its job once people land on your blog or your book's Amazon page.

Whether you get a sale after that has little to do with Twitter, which is why "Buy My Book" tweets do not work. Not saying you'll never sell a book that way, but the chances are so rare ... that's why I don't use that technique.

My Twitter Technique

Instead, I direct attention to reviews, the synopsis, and lines directly from the novel. I use hashtags to reel people in who do not follow any of our accounts.

Because of retweets and hashtags, new people follow us every day, even if I am not presently pursuing new followers.

And we get a lot of retweets, especially from the accounts that have larger followings, such as my main account (@MasqCrew) which is nearing 50,000 followers just by itself. Once you add in our other accounts, we have well over 100,000 followers.

A New Twitter Service

Normally our Twitter promotion directs attention to this blog and the promo posts therein. However, we're starting a new service. It's very much like the Amazon Tweet Exchange, except instead of tweeting about us, you'll give us cash, and then we will tweet for you.

But it won't be a lot of cash. As always, we keep our services cheap ... so hopefully you'll come back again and again. And again.

Packages Start at Just $5

Package #1 — $5


  • I will compose 5 tweets about your book using the technique described above. The information for these tweets will come from your book's Amazon page.
  • These 5 tweets will be tweeted via our main accounts, repeating randomly over the course of a few weeks.
  • The minimum number of total tweets will be 200 (though it'll most likely be a little more than that just to make sure).
    • Retweets do count toward the total.
  • You can supply a date for these tweets to start. We will try to oblige but do not promise.

Package #2 — $10


  • I will compose 10 tweets about your book using the technique described above. The information for these tweets will come from your book's Amazon page.
  • If needed I will use lines from the novel, but only if you supply an excerpt. I will not use the excerpt from Amazon.
  • These 10 tweets will be tweeted via our main accounts, repeating randomly over the course of several weeks.
  • The minimum number of total tweets will be 500 (though it'll most likely be a little more than that just to make sure).
    • Retweets do count toward the total.
  • You can supply a date for these tweets to start. We will try to oblige but do not promise.

Package #3 — $15


  • I will compose 20 tweets about your book using the technique described above. The information for these tweets will come from your book's Amazon page.
  • I will also use lines from the novel, but only if you supply an excerpt. I will not use the excerpt from Amazon. (For package 3 it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you supply an excerpt.)
  • These 20 tweets will be tweeted via our main accounts, repeating randomly over the course of several weeks, maybe even a few months.
  • The minimum number of total tweets will be 1,000 (though it'll most likely be a little more than that just to make sure).
    • Retweets do count toward the total.
  • You can supply a date for these tweets to start. We will try to oblige but do not promise.


Package #4 — $25 


  • I will compose as many tweets as I can about your book using the technique described above. The information for these tweets will come from your book's Amazon page.
  • I will also use lines from the novel, but only if you supply an excerpt. I will not use the excerpt from Amazon. (For package 4 it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you supply an excerpt.)
  • These tweets will be tweeted via our main accounts, concentrating on a specific time period to advertise an event: a sale, a giveaway, or something similar.
  • This package will not have a minimum number of tweets as it will be time based, though I suspect that the number will be in the hundreds, even if they all go out in one day.
  • This package will take precedence over other packages due to the time nature.

Supplying an Excerpt

I do not accept excerpts via email, so you will have to provide a link to an excerpt online. The best place is your blog. You should have one there anyway. If not, a Facebook status update will do. Or you can use a text service such as https://justpaste.it/.



Please do not make me search for your excerpt ... because I won't do it. Thus, your link needs to go directly to your excerpt.

Cheaper Elsewhere? Doubtful!

I doubt you could find any other tweet service this cheap. Tweets with package 4, for example, will average less than a penny and a half each.

Why do I ask for so much via the form?

I use all of the information you supply via the form to build the best tweets and to save time (which keeps my prices low). To create genre hashtags, for example, I don't have to search for your genre on the Amazon page. Plus you can supply keywords that aren't even on Amazon.

Answer as much of the form as you can, though take note that some questions are designed for the more expensive packages.


Secret Word

Both on the Paypal Form (which is ON THIS PAGE, not the Paypal website) as well as the Google form, we ask for a secret word. We use this to match up your payment with your package details you submit via form. Choose something other authors aren't likely to choose — perhaps something unique to either you or one of your books.












Once you have paid for a package, fill out the form at THIS LINK to turn in your promo info.
