In a connected world, the impact of just one reader can be huge. New authors need (and appreciate) word-of-mouth support more than ever.
So can you help spread the word? If you appreciated Surprised by Oxford or something on this blog. If you would like to support our version of the mission “reading, writing and living the Word eternal” here are some small things that make a big difference.
LEVEL 1 (CLICK SUPPORT): 8 clicks in 40 seconds that support Carolyn pressing save:
- On Amazon, use 1-click to buy a book online. If you already did, gift one to a friend?
- On Amazon: Click the “like” button near the title, with the orange thumbs-up. (BTW, this does not connect to Facebook, it is just an Amazon number). Lots of reviews and likes are just much better than the alternative.
- On Amazon: Click the “like” button for the Kindle Edition as well (these are currently separate, for some reason)

- Subscribe to this blog with your email address. This is a key metric
- Link back to http://www.pressingsave.com from your business website, personal URL or blog. For occasional traffic and Search Engine Optimization (SEO), every back link makes a difference
- Use Facebook, Twitter or other social media to occasionally recommend a book, share a new blog post or ReTweet something.
- On Amazon: Write a review. Every good review makes a difference, no matter how many are already there.
- On Amazon: “Tag” the book with keywords or genre-descriptive labels. Just scroll down to “Tags Customers Associate with This Product.” You will see 15 or so Tags already associated with Surprised by Oxford. Just click in the box(es) of ALL the tags you agree with (or you can take more time, and click ADD to add some more your own) up to 15 total. Note bene, the link that says “Agree with these tags” is misleading, as it does NOT actually tag the book. You have to make sure there is a check-mark in the box next to a Tag you are tagging. Customer tags help classify books and connect to related items, discussions and people. You don’t need to review or buy, just own an Amazon account with at least one purchase. Reader tags and a solid sales ranking can impact which books come up on customer searches and atop tagged categories like ‘memoir’. This exercise is really helpful to authors for alot of reasons, so thanks!
