Innovation Tools Book Launch Part 4

Innovation Tools Book Launch Part 4 (1)After yesterday’s excitement I knew it would be hard to keep up the moment, however, the day went quite well. Up to today my book has gotten 2684 downloads in the first three days. A pretty decent result considering I was an unknown author before this. However, my goal from the beginning has always been at least 4000 downloads and hopefully 5000, so I still have a way to go!Today’s marketing activities can be seen in the table below. In spite of my direct activities, I was lucky to have a number of people post my book offer on their Facebook pages (Christian Wolf, Bibi Lafleur and probably others I don’t know about) as well as some further tweets/posts by other well-connected groups and people. I also had an unplanned additional featured post about my Innovation Excellence article in the Innovation Excellence group. My planned activities for today can be seen in the following table:View the Google Document

I can now legitimately claim that my book was a number one bestseller on Kindle! This is a great accolade for the book and gives my book a lot of credibility.Phase three of my marketing campaign now involves getting my achievement in a news/media outlet to increase the number of people I reach and hopefully drive sales after my book returns to its normal price. So today I started sending out press releases to over a dozen different possible news outlets in Australia and a few others around the world, however, so far I haven’t gotten a response. It looks like this phase may be a bit harder than I thought.I will keep you posted tomorrow as to whether I can get a news outlet to pick up my story and drive the awareness of the book into the stratosphere…
