Frequently Asked Questions

Do social media ads guarantee book sales?

Let’s be clear: There are no guarantees social media advertising generates book sales. However, not promoting your book through sponsored content guarantees readers won’t even know it’s for sale.

Finding readers will always be one of your greatest challenges. But social media is, and will continue to be, one of the most potent advertising resources available to independent authors. Partnering with our social media experts positions your book to get the most out of advertising on Facebook,Instagram, and LinkedIn.

How many books will I sell?

One of the first questions we usually get from authors about our Ads for Authors program is “How many books will I sell?” The unfortunate answer is: We don’t know – it could be zero, or it could be a needle mover. You see, selling books depends on many factors, including:

  • How much are you able to invest in advertising, and for how long?
  • How active are you on social media, and how many followers do you have?
  • Are you doing any offline marketing activities, like book signings or giveaways?
  • Do you have a mailing list to whom you can promote your book?
  • Have you published other books before, or are you a new author?
  • And yes, is your book good enough to generate a buzz among readers?

All of these factors and more contribute to the effectiveness of your ad campaign. Read more
