Use Facebook to Attract More Readers and Drive Book Sales

Facebook advertising allows authors to communicate with the world's largest community in a relaxed, personable way. What's even more exciting? Facebook can connect authors with their perfect audience. Instead of advertising to 1,000 random people, for example, you can instantly advertise to a group of individuals that have interests directly related to your book. Published a book about scuba diving? No problem. On Facebook, you can promote your book to an audience who has shown an interest in the ocean, exotic fish, water sports, scuba diving or snorkelling, travelling and more.

So how can authors advertise their book on the world's largest social media platform?

We talked to social media advertising specialist, Esther James of Socialable Bristol, to find out more. You can read about what you need for a successful Facebook ad campaign in the full article here.
