I tried to do a promotion on Facebook of my bundle. I ran it for 5 days. For the entire 5 days the promotion was under review. At the end of the promotion it said completed. I was, to say the least, furious. And to compound matters FB did not reply to my query. The good news no money was spent or lost.
But since I'm not the type of person to give up because of a glitch, I decided to finally click on the "promote" option of my Instagram account. Of course I was a little gun shy so I decided not to invest as much money as I did with FB. I wanted to see what the results were first.
So far I'm please with it reaching over 1,200 people. in the first 3 days. 18% were women and 82% were men. I guess the ladies aren't into "cops and robbers".
But at least now I have an idea of who the potential audience is for the UC 630 Cop or Criminal series are. Although, oddly enough, most of my female friends love the book. I think it's because of the content. I might have to change the cover to attract a more balanced audience.
Trial and error.
I am still learning about this career, calling or life style. But what I must learn is patience and realize that what I envision won't happen in the first year. Or the second year. Or within five years. But I know it will happen eventually. The good news is that I love what I'm doing so the journey to success will be fun!
