What's going on that's interesting? Well, just about no one is clicking over at Goodreads--there's no question I'll have to let that campaign run for quite a bit longer to use up the pre-pay. Which is fine, actually--I wasn't going to renew the campaign for the full-price book over on Facebook, so I might as well let Goodreads run. The click-through rate is somewhat lower on Goodreads than on Facebook, but the main reason the number of clicks is so much less is that the Goodreads ad has reached about 1,200 people today, while Facebook ad has reached about 140,000 people.
And I got a one-star review on Amazon because of the bad language. The person was shocked! shocked!! shocked!!! that a book described as containing "some really bad language" would contain...some really bad language! It was especially awful because people on other planets would never use bad language--wow, that is something I did not know.
Anyway, I did something I normally would not do and reported the review. Opinion or not liking the book is one thing; ignoring a warning clearly stated in the book description is something else.
Oh, and one thing I was wondering about with the current Facebook campaign was if it made a difference to have had a few weeks of advertising for the full-price books preceding the ads for the free book. And the answer so far is no: About the same percentage of people are clicking through this time (following the full-price campaign) as last time (when there was no campaign before).
