Episode 116 - Why Social Media Helps You Sell More Books

My mom, the data nerd, is back with another episode loaded with stats on why social media helps you sell books. All in the name of selling more books with less marketing. Hope you’re having a great week! 

In this week’s show Chris analyzes data on how social media helps word-of-mouth and increases sales. Also, why most authors only need one primary social media channel for their platform. And there is a nice shout-out to my new book. Thanks, Mom.

Show Notes:

-Know the why behind the power of social media.

-Updated social media stats.

-Updated research on why social media increases sales.

-70% of people over 13 years old are on at least one social media channel to connect (88% of 18-29 age group).

-Only 10% of people over 65 are on Instagram.

-A primary social media channel is the place where you connect with fans. You only need one in most cases.
