The following Tweet came rolling by this morning:
Please click ‘like’ and 13 tags of my new book at amazon.com/When-Get-Live-…
The excerpted part was followed by a coupon for a free review copy from Smashwords, but PG was more intrigued by the Amazon part. It’s a request that can be fulfilled in less than five seconds for the Like if you don’t read much. (If you check out the Look Inside, it’s a pretty amateur book.)
What do you think?
Will a lot of Likes and a lot of tag clicks do anything useful for a book’s sales on Amazon?
Of course, if everybody starts receiving 500 tweets per day asking them to do the same thing for someone’s book, PG won’t be the only one experiencing rapid-onset Like fatigue.
