Jerry Dunne’s tag cloud


Smashwords book reviews by Jerry Dunne

  • How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months on Nov. 13, 2011

    This book is very useful for those who have had no experience in advertising or marketing their books over the net. Locke allows his own personality to flow throughout the text which gives his work a quirky edge. He gets into the psychology behind his blog posts, explaining very carefully why he believes they are effective in driving traffic to his blog and therefore interest in his books. They may be out there, but I have not come across anyone who has done this before. You can take more away from this book than simply seeing it as a means of driving traffic to your blog and increasing your sales. Locke shows you how to create friendships over the web, which cannot be easy, considering that these are done at a great distance; as well, he makes you think very carefully about the nature of blog writing: for example, how effective and how deeply your bog posts might be felt by your target audience. By using his own examples, he joins up all the dots for us behind the theory, allowing you to see clearly how it is done, so that you can then bespoke his theory to your own needs. The idea of writing short blogs, no more than once a month, blogs that are universal and timeless, sincerely written and deeply felt, and then sharing them over the Twittersphere, is a clever and creative idea and just what any writer should find appealing and challenging. For the price I paid for this book, I think it is a bargain and many thanks to the man for writing it and sharing his hard-won experience with us all.
