A Free ebook promo for Trouble on the Straits using Thunderclap
« on: November 12, 2015, 01:11:29 PM »
I’ve set up a repeat of the freebie ebook promo offered six weeks ago. This time, it will be broadcast with a Thunderclap.

What is Thunderclap? It’s a new website that allows people to pledge to Tweet or Facebook a message all on the same day at the same time—to achieve maximum effect building awareness. It’s like an online flash mob to raise awareness of my novel Trouble on the Straits. The thunderclap will occur on Thursday, November 26.

I need 100 supporters for the Thunderclap to launch on Nov 26. Just 13 days away.

Click on this link ( http://thndr.me/7wVgqI ) and choose either “Support with Twitter” or “Support with Facebook” or both! Then, add your name to the Thunderclap and on November 26 everyone that signed up will automatically post on Facebook and Twitter. The message will be:

A former Navy SEAL finds Trouble on the Straits of Florida: sharks, treasure, drug cartels & more. Get a free copy. http://thndr.me/Llbat2

Thunderclap will network supporter’s Twitter and Facebook contacts to broadcast a few hundred thousand simultaneous posts. The link in the message goes to my Amazon ebook page. Hopefully, the buzz and awareness created will result in more downloads and, with luck, more reviews to boost Kindle store ranking.

Your help with TOTS thus far and for this new promotion is greatly appreciated. Please help. Click to start: http://thndr.me/7wVgqI

I've just signed up. I've heard about Thunderclap before but not used it or taken part before. Will be interesting to see how you get on. Good Luck!

RESISTANCE TO SIGN UP AS A SUPPORTER ON THUNDERCLAP
 
I have received some feedback from friends regarding my Thunderclap free ebook promo. They are hesitant to entrust a third party with access to their follower/friend lists. Not sure why, but I contacted Thunderclap about it and they offered the following paragraph which I have added to the message on my thunderclap for Trouble on the Straits.
 
"Thunderclap uses the absolute minimal set of permissions allowed by Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr in order to post a single, one-time message on your behalf. Sometimes this includes additional permission we do not use in any shape or form. We take your privacy very seriously and will never update your profile or send messages on behalf of your friends."

That response from Thunderclap is reassuring. I can understand people being hesitant about taking part hopefully that will reassure them.

Thanks, Sally. With 8 days left to reach 100 supporters and only ten sonfar, it doesn't look like there will be any thunder on November 26. Instill plan to offer the ebook FREE from 25 Nov through 26 Nov so grab a copy if you have a chance.
