Tomorrow! Tomorrow! The marketing blitz starts tomorrow!

I can’t believe it’s only a day away!

To remind you, I will run three promos on three consecutive days between 26-28 November. There was going to be a fourth, but I’d messed up and did not follow up on it. Proof that you have to have a plan and write things down.

Speaking of plans, I just heard an awesome quote along the lines of “The difference between confidence and arrogance is a plan.” So let me lay out my plan on getting Shizzle, Inc to #1 in Amazon’s Satire Bestseller List this weekend:

  1. 26 November. We start with Robin Reads targeted mail-out. Cost: $25.
  2. 27 November. There might be some sales generated by Robin Reads, hopefully supported by Indie Book promo. Cost: $25.
  3. 28 November – we finish off with a biggie – a proven performer, Book Gorilla. Cost: $50.

I am so excited about it that I will be posting live sales charts throughout the weekend on twitter. So, if you are interested, and are not yet following me – follow @spokeana on Twitter now! You don’t want to miss the races!

This is the current sales chart:


Sales on 25 Nov


And here are the current rankings:


Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #314,319 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)

Let’s see what happens tomorrow!

    Good luck! I can’t wait to see how Robin Reads works for you. I only just discovered them but have yet to use them or any other similar service. Will definitely look into Book Gorilla!

  12. Great plan. I haven’t tried any of those advertising sites, so I’ll be interested to see how well they work for you. Hope you get your 300 sales.

  13. Good luck! 💝I was wondering why you didn’t have links to your book on this post. I’m on my phone, as many people are, and it’s awkward to open lots if windows. Make purchase easy for blog visitors by putting your buying links on all promo posts! Just a suggestion 🙂

    • Thank you! I will, thank you for your support 🙂 for one, I’m still a little shy about pushing it, and also I want to see what these companies do on their own. So far Robin Reads is ok at 20 sales, Indie Book Promo is worthless, and big hopes for Book Gorilla tomorrow.

  14. Thank you so much for doing this, Ana. I’ve processed the results of your promo along with the results from a couple other authors I know and I’ve come to some conclusions. The TL;DR of it is: Anything but free advertising is too expensive. Here’s the post. I mention you extensively…


    • Thank you and I’m glad that my posts help you, although I disagree with your conclusions. I won’t argue, though – just hope to show that my brand-building will pay dividends in the future. Give me a year?
