DISCUSSION: How do get reads on a story

What do you think that an author can do in order to get more reads on a story?

Promoting your story is essential.
Here’s a few things that I do to promote my stories.

  • Have a good cover.
  • R4Rs.
  • Create a thread for your story.
  • Create an Instagram account.
  • Request story reviews/story shout-outs.
  • Join episodes groups on Facebook.
  • Build lasting friendships in the community. Your friends will help promote your story.

You don’t have to do everything I listed. Find out what’s more comfortable for you to do. Promoting your story is very awkward in the beginning. As time goes on, it will become second nature to you.

Another thing that helps is updating your story often. If you can try and join a creator contest for exposure.

Just search Episode Interactive and the groups will pop up. I’m only in three groups that’s semi active. Still promote in there anyway. Just make sure you follow the group rules.
