Just a quickie reminder that I am still doing these. If I have missed you, my apologies! Please make sure your profile says that it's okay for me to do this. Further, give me a nudge if you think I didn't get you, as I don't always see 'em. Thank you.
PS Since July, this is our most popular post -
Â The Hooded Man by LA Moody
104 people reached! But recognize that this has not translated into that many readers (that story has under 90 reads, IIRC). Reach was increased because the post was shared.
Posts do best under the following conditions:
1) There's a cover image. The one above didn't have one, but the next seven did, of the top eight posts during this time frame.
2) The post is shared. Even one share increases reach pretty dramatically.
3) The post is liked. Likes take a few seconds and they deliver a small notification to your followers. Hence reach is increased.
One more quick note - if you have a collaboration or a crossover, I would rather not share them unless I know both (or more than two) people agree that it's okay. I just want to cover all bases. If you've got a great collaboration but only two of three people say it's okay to share on social media, I would rather that you got unanimity before going ahead. I just think it's a best practice.
Thank you and happy writing!
