“I’m an author and I’ve received 40 free books from the publicist I used last year, 20 copies each of “The Musician’s Guide to Brides: How to Make Money Playing Weddings” and “The Brides Guide to Musicians: Live Wedding Music Made Easy and Affordable.”
“They were copies supplied without cost from the publisher to be sent out for review. Since I didn’t pay for them, I want to do a giveaway.
“What’s the most effective way to do a contest/giveaway? Where do I post it to get it noticed? Should it be a quiz with a question of the day? Should it be some kind of silly trivia? I just don’t know how to attract people to a little contest.
“Even when I had a big grand prize giveaway that I tried out about a year ago, it garnered very little interest. I’d love ideas from your Hounds on how to really attract attention with this.”
Ideas are welcome below. If you have your own dilemma involving publicity or social media, email it to me.
