Hi all. I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile but I’ve been working on a tool for authors that I think you’ll like if you use WordPress. Author (and coder) John Logsdon and I have been hard at work on building a bit.ly for authors. The plugin allows you to create short, trackable urls for your books. Unlike bit.ly you can bundle a slew of links to each book, which helps you spot promotions that are working well. And best of all, when you enter a book in the tool we’ll automatically create dozens of links for you. Imagine never again having to make a url for the in-book upsell to Smashwords or for that Facebook post. The links can also tell where the person clicking it is from! That means they’ll be taken to the store of their country of origin. So if they’re in India they’ll be taken to the Indian retailer.
We’re in beta right now, but Mark Dawson has added The Author Helper WordPress plugin to his list of freebies if you take his new course, Facebook Ads for Authors. I’ve dabbled in his free courses and found good results. But John has taken the full course and it did change his life, no bs. Here’s John talking about the class. If you want to learn to sell books and grow your newsletter following with Facebook ads then give it a shot. You’ll get our plugin for free when it launches!
