So I’ve decided to try out this ThunderClap thing. I ran across it a few months ago, and since then, I’ve seen it used by a few different authors. I’m not sure about its effectiveness, but I understand the basis of it. What happens is that people sign up, by which I mean that they agree to either Facebook post or Tweet or Tumbler the person’s message on they day they want it shared. By sharing it in mass, it is visible to more people and gets more exposure in a concentrated time frame. Once you agree to share, the share happens automatically on the day of. I figured the next sale of Otherworlders would be the perfect time to try a thunderclap.
The only downside I’ve seen so far is that if you don’t want to pay for the service, then you have to amass at least 100 supporters. That said, if you could support the campaign, I’d really appreciate your help!
