Using Pinterest to promote


I have currently started to promote my books on pinterest as an experiment.

Starting with a main focus on My Amber Light series. Since I am planning on releasing the second part of the series in two weeks. What this blog will mark and I will comment once a week to inform will be the impact if any Pinterest has on my books.
The other book I will be doing on Pinterest is God Life without Religion. What I am trying to do in the end is get plenty of exposure for my books.
If you have read my book please place a review of it on Amazon. If you want you can even Email me it and I can put the review with a link back to your blog or page in order to help each other out. I am willing to read your books and review them if that is also what you would like.

Again you can find them on Pinterest here: Pinterest Omar Amber Light
 

It has been four days since I started putting stuff on Pinterest. And well there has been no such growth in my sales. But it is great for mass promotion. Basically if a group of writers got together and dumped a bunch of books into boards then the chance that some would get picked and others would not is there. Though it does look like a hit or miss and even though I will still check it out for the remainder of the week I do no think my results will change much.

The first week is up and to my astonishment Pinterest shot my sales to the millions category. Nah just kidding. There has absolutely been no results from Pinterest. There may have been some clicks and views to my books or even searches that would have brought them to the Amazon pages, but there is no way to confirm that. As for sales they have stayed the same for a no name author as myself.  I will leave my pins up and maybe people will stumble upon them.
Again for Pinterest to work you would have to build a following such as in twitter, FB or google+ that would drive them to check out Pinterest. Though that extra step may just in fact stop a sale rather than get you one.
