In today’s episode, I explain how one of my TikTok videos went viral on Instagram and using Amazon ads as an indie author.
For that video to go viral (it has more than 26000 views) which is very uncommon for me, I followed a few steps. That video also resulted in sales and pages read. My book went from sitting at 700000 to about 70000 and then climbed a bit higher and stayed around 100000 for a few days without any ads.
When it comes to the Amazon Ads, my French ads seem to be doing well. I’ll keep you updated.
