Book Retweet Day Directions
The purpose of Book Retweet Day is to gain help from other authors in sharing a tweet about your book.
How does it work?
You create a tweet and copy the tweet's URL, then share it in the comments here. Another author clicks on your tweet's URL and then retweets it on Twitter. You do the same for them on a tweet they shared. If you have 500 followers and the other author has 500, then by sharing tweets, you each had a reach of 1000.
What do I have to do?
- Before Book Retweet Day, log in to Twitter and create a tweet. You can share up to 280 characters per tweet.
- Use an image to attract attention (i.e., your cover or a banner).
- Use hashtags that fit your book's genre. Readers often search Twitter for their favorites.
- Once the tweet has been posted, click anywhere in the white background of the tweet. This will open it and allow you to highlight and copy the URL.
- Navigate back to here and paste the URL in the comment section of this post.
- Come back on Book Retweet Day and retweet everyone on the list whose work fits your stream. **
You do not have to respond to each comment. If you have completed several, you have the option of commenting: "caught up to here". This will also help you see where you left off if you come back later.
**If a tweet doesn't fit your stream, you are under no obligation to share it. You will NOT be able to edit the tweet because you are only retweeting what they have already shared. Please note that if you continue to not share, no one will share yours either.
Here's to a great day of book retweets!
