Marathon to 1 Million…

Who said running a Thunderclap campaign is easy?

I saw a post on twitter today that said, “There is no elevator to success…take the stairs” and it resonated with me. I’m climbing the stairs to 1 Million shares.

So what is Thunderclap?

Thunderclap is a crowdspeaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together. It allows a single message to be mass-shared, flash mob-style, so it rises above the noise of your social networks. By boosting the signal at the same time, Thunderclap helps a single person create action and change like never before.

Here’s where I sit on my campaign.

I love it if you’d join me on the stairway to success and help me get to 1,000,000 shares. All you need to do is click here.

Thunderclap does the rest.

Helping Authors Earn A Living

Helping authors earn a living is the tag line I used for the Thunderclap.it  campaign I created for THE AUTHOR’S GUIDE TO SELLING BOOKS TO NON-BOOKSTORES.

I’d love to have your help in spreading the word for my first non-fiction book. It’s easy. All you have to do is click the link below. Thunderclap.it will take you to a page where you can support the campaign by choosing FaceBook, Twitter, or Tumbler.

If you do…It means one post will go out on May 28th on your platform of choice. You won’t receive any spam or other messages. You don’t have to buy book.

This could be your way of helping authors earn a living, but helping me -an author 🙂 – spread the word about my next book.

The Thunderclap.it campaign is live for another 11 days at http://bit.ly/KSAuthor

BOOM. How To Create A Successful Thunderclap Campaign

As I move through my publishing journey, I’m trying new ways to make my work visible, and I’m sharing what I try with you. THE AUTHOR’S GUIDE TO SELLING BOOKS TO NON-BOOKSTORES is my first non-fiction book, and probably needs a different marketing strategy than my novels.

My latest venture is with Thunderclap.

Thunderclap is a crowdspeaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together. It allows a single message to be mass-shared, flash mob-style, so it rises above the noise of your social networks. By boosting the signal at the same time, Thunderclap helps a single person create action and change like never before.

The first step in creating a Thunderclap campaign is creating an account. Just follow the instructions. I supported various campaigns, so I understood what it meant to ask others to support my campaign.  It’s easy and not intrusive in any way.

I discovered that by supporting a campaign one post went out on my facebook account as a specified time. You can also support campaigns on Twitter and Tumbler or on all three platforms.

The second step is to create your campaign. I searched through the successful campaigns for non-fiction books and studied how to create a campaign.

Here’s mine.

The third step is to get 100 people to support your campaign. Once that’s done. Your message will go live on the date you specified. If you don’t get at least 100 people to support your campaign, then no message will be posted and you won’t get the visibility you were striving for.

To get 100 people takes a bit of work. I went through my list of contacts and chose 150 people who I thought would support my campaign. I sent them a personal message asking for help. It took me just under a week to hit 100.

I’m posting today because yesterday I reached the 100 mark. My campaign is successful and one message will be sent on May 28th on the networks of everyone who has supported me.

Right now, my reach is just under 225,000 people. I would love to reach 500,000 people.

To support my campaign, just click here.

Let me know if you try a Thunderclap campaign, and I’ll be sure to support it.

Thank you to everyone who has already supported this new venture.
