Honestly, GoodReads used to be a mysterious black hole. I kept reading that I should get more involved, which I tried, but honestly, my time is short. GoodReads Cracked by Alinka Rutkowska can maximize your use of the social book site for just 10 to 15 minutes a day.
If you don’t have an account yet, don’t worry. She’ll take you through the steps to help get it set up. The videos will help you get it right the first time.
And even if you do have an account, don’t skip the setup videos. There are some great gems in there that will help you improve your discoverability.
The process she takes you through is, admittedly, a little outdated. You can’t see the list of entrants who didn’t win your giveaways anymore. You have to use “to-read” shelves to find interested readers now.
And I believe they have cut the number of allowed messages per day – about 10 instead of 15. You also have to wait 24 hours after the last message before starting a new batch of messages. It’s definitely a little more of an uphill climb, but still well worth learning her tactics.
The course comes with videos, plus swipe sheets of her contact letters. It’s everything you need to crack GoodReads and connect with readers.
Her methods will also help you build your email list! Alinka may very well be a marketing genius.
NOTE: If you’d like to get more familiar with her methods before commiting to the course, check out her book (newly updated) How I Sold 80,000 Books. As of the date of this post, the book is free!
