Fiverr Spotlight: Louise Wise

Here’s another shining star on Fiverr. Louise reminded me of one of those tell-it-like-it-is aunties. The self-proclaimed Indie Author Champion was super communicative and not afraid to give her opinion. She took it upon herself to help make my blurb a little smoother, even though that wasn’t part of the gig description (she has another gig for that). We had a great back-and-forth badminton messaging, swapping revised lines with what we each thought was a better way to convey them AND the mood of Chaos (un)Controlled, until we were completely on the same page in agreement. Five dollars got me her experienced blurb assistance, Twitter and Facebook posts, as well as a post on her blog here. A bonus attached to her tweets is that she’s part of Triberr, which means others in the tribe also tweet it as well! Definitely a high-value gig that makes you feel cared for.

Fiverr Spotlight: Andrea Coventry

Last honorable mention went to the great okomota! This time I’m highlighting an awesome gig any Indie Author utilizing Fiverr should purchase. You can check the gig below:

https://www.fiverr.com/andreacoventry/promote-your-young-adult-book?funnel=c2d56cf0-a435-447c-94d3-2c549725f9c5

Five dollars got me a spot on both her Young Adult Blog here and her other book blog here. (Be advised that she does note at the bottom of the page that the post was commissioned through Fiverr). On top of that, she tweeted my book numerous times, generating a great amount of likes and retweets, as well as a Facebook post with awesome engagement. She’s a wonderful example of a Fiverr NON-hustler that goes above and beyond. Great value! I would most certainly use again! 😀

I’m Impressed by David

And those who know me know I’m not easily impressed. I’m talking about AskDavid.com (no relation to Jeeves). Has it gotten me more sales? Not really sure. Nothing notable to immediately go “AHA!” But their setup and value impresses me. When I initially came across them in one of the many book promotion lists online, I passed them over because it mentioned a membership and I hate joining things. The commitment… >.>

But I finally returned and decided to give it a shot because it’s only $15 for a 6-month membership, and other services I’ve swam through so far charge you far more than that for just a day’s/week’s worth of promotion and little return.

Check out this nifty page they executed for me: http://askdavid.com/reviews/book/science-fantasy/14550

It has an old-school fan-page feel that my humble self admires. THIS looks like effort! Far more than the Fiverr gig I recently bought that offered to tweet my link for 3 days and literally tweeted only the link with the hashtag I gave them (I mean, most gigs like this include SOME sort of wording, and the guy proclaimed he was a goddamned ARTIST). The next day was a RETWEET of his original tweet. That’s #2, I guess. :/ Today, who knows. And that was a $10 gig.

But David…David shows my book cover in brilliant size, prodded me to give a description that differed from my book blurb to connect with readers, linked to my website, Twitter, and the Amazon page, threw my face up in there as well as my meager Amazon reviews, gave an option for people to talk and engage with me…David also gives you access to set up tweets from his Twitter account, AND gives you random little promotion pop-ups on his site. For $15 over 6 months, this is pretty good stuff, and not a price you’ll look back on like it wasn’t worth it. He’s making this fun and I can’t wait to do more interacting with it. I’ll even be able to farm for more indies to read and support here. It’s like a one-stop shop, where you find those rare RPG towns where they sell the items and weapons in the same place instead of making you run to different buildings.

It feels good to be impressed.
