Sure, I will check it out! :slight_smile:

Hello, I just released a story and I’m wondering what is the best way to promote it?
A lot of you suggested a instagram and talk to more people on the forums. I do that but I’m barely getting any reads at all.
Is there anything else I can do?
Thank you.

It’s ok. It takes time even for me. What I do is religiously promote in every thread and do my best to provide an honest R4R for each author for their story. Like do alot of R4Rs. I do that and promote other peoples stories on threads which I’ve done R4R for. I help others and others help me. :D.

Don’t be discourage…I was at first and maybe still am but it’s ok. It’s part of life, how we deal with it, how you let it shape you and how you move on from it. All that matters is that to ensure your love for writing never dies :smiley: I’ll add you to my list. Instagram wise I dont have a sole account for episode… so that is better to ask someone else :smiley:

Thank you so much for the encouragement.
I know I’m not going to get results right away (this is my first story after all, but I just wish I could do more to get more people reading it).

When I first published my story I went on a following-frenzy on the app. When you follow someone, they get the notification, so they probably look at your profile too. So if your story catches their eye, they might start reading it too.

Hello, I’ve already promoted my story before; this is just a question.
I’ve posted my story and I’ve done exactly 67 r4r stories (and I’m still going through my list) and follow so many people on Instagram.
I’m not expecting to get a large number of reads immediately; but I haven’t reached 40reads and it’s been almost a month. A friend of mine has followers and r4r than me and she has almost 1k and she had hers out for only 2weeks. I did what she told me to do but I’m just confused if I’m doing something wrong.
Am I doing something wrong???

Hey! It’s not really good to compare your stories success to your friends story you’ll get there! Some ppl read different genres and some ppl help with promoting stories if they’ve read them and genuinely like them. So there’s a lot of different factors that can contribute to that. I’m going to give your story a read once I finish my R4Rs and I’ll pm you my thoughts about it once I finish! Don’t get down when it comes to read just continue to write and try not to focus on it.

No you’re fine. That happened to me before… that’s why I stopped doing r4r’s.

I know. Makes me so annoyed. The only reason it was merged is because your topic asking for tips mentioned your story. They were still different topics though :slightly_frowning_face:

Exactly! They should have the option of the writer wants to merge instead of them doing it willingly.
