How do i get reads?

I’m starting my first story soon but I don’t want to write it if no one if going to read it. I think my storyline is ok and I’m not writing only for the reads. I just want my hard work to pay off because coding looks so hard. Any tips for a tiny writer?

Ask your friend(s) to read it, then they could be your first readers or you could do read for reads.

Well I guess it’s up to the readers to determine if it’s a good story. Oof I’m trying though ( :heavy_multiplication_x: _ :heavy_multiplication_x: )

CLICK BAIT - I know this might not be “ethical”, but meh. When gang stories and pregnancy stories are as popular as they are, you gotta do what you gotta do and use up all your tags with keywords that people will actually search for. Think gang, bad, boy, pregnant, famous, mafia, kidnap, hot, dating, romance, love, FWB. Even if you don’t have a story about getting kidnapped and pregnant by a bad-boy famous mafia leader… People will still see your story pop up often. They’ll read the description or the cover might interest them. They might get a little as to why it came up when all they search was “Stockholm Syndrome”, but shhh, they don’t need to know what your tags are.

BE AN ACTIVE MEMBER IN THIS COMMUNITY - I cannot stress this enough. Being active on the forums gives you a major boost. I’d bet my life savings that the majority* of my readers came from people who saw me commenting my opinion on any and every thread on forums that would let me. Similarly, it’s those same people that will notice your presence and then read your story that will also become your very own promoters! And trust me when I say, people will trust someone who is recommending your story more than they will trust you if you recommend your own.

Hahaha, the second one’s not that hard. As long as you have 10 minutes a day to spend typing out a post for something in the episode fan community, there’ll be people who will notice :smiley:

So lots of R4R and promoting on instagram and on this website! I know a girl who’s gotten 1k reads in a day just by sharing it on forums!

Hi, here are some tips!

  • Promote your story here on the forums, in the ‘promote your story’ category.
  • Come up with a title that’s going to make people click on your story.
  • If you have social media, you could advertise it there- maybe make an account specially for Episode, seperate from your main account.
  • Do read for reads, maybe?
  • You could perhaps make some friends here, and they might read it as a favour.
