Word Up! Feels the Power of Social Media

Today marks the end of a one-month Word Up! Goodreads Giveaway. (Goodreads is a social network for book lovers.) Five free copies of the book are now winging their way toward new owners.

I took a gamble on this promotion. How did it go?

  • 1112 Goodreads members entered to win a copy of Word Up!
  • 519 Goodreads members added Word Up! to their “to read” shelves

Printing and mailing five books? A few bucks. Word Up! showing up on 519 new wish lists? Priceless.

Anyone still wondering about the power of social media?

To all who helped spread the word about the giveaway, thank you.
