I love the gecko, I really do. Not tired of him yet, not at all. Wonder who does the voice? Anyway, the loops (on my mind a lot these days, eh?) are really (it seems) turning into an endless stream of promos. And as I go to add my own, I’ve found myself backing off lately. Some of these posts look almost desperate–“Pick me! Pick me!” So I hope you’ll chime in published authors and tell us what you think really, really works in marketing your ebooks (ebooks or ebook/trade). Here are the ones I honestly think may be a waste of time: banners, chats (live), review posting overkill, bookmarks, etc. They may increase your visibility, which I guess could ultimately lead to sales. It still seems that the best tool may be to hitch yourself to a good-selling company, have several (or many, many) releases. What do YOU think? I do love that gecko. But I’ll never buy Geico insurance. That’s my point, I guess.
