I have found that building relationships and posting occasional promotions and giveaways in Facebook groups has been an effective way to market my books. I have gathered and researched a TON of Facebook groups for authors and have listed 60+ of them out according to categories below.
Please share other groups you know about in the comments below.
How to Use Facebook Groups:
- Click the link of the groups you are interested in below.
- Once you are accepted into the group, change your notifications (I like to turn mine off except for certain groups and you can do this in the top right hand corner)
- Read the group’s “About” section as they each have different requirements.
- Do NOT spam. Post only occasionally about your best promotions, giveaways, reviews, etc. Comment and like on other posts to interact and start building relationships.
Also, make sure not to make these mistakes when marketing on social media.
